Re: Zedah (Criminal Injuries)

In the matter of Zadeh [2015] WADC 136, Mr Zadeh put in his own claim for compensation for an assault and was awarded $4,772 by the  Assessor. I appealed against that award under section 17(2) of the Act, contending that the award was too low and had been assessed  prematurely. The Court found that the award should be increased to $73,828.
