I am a Taxi Driver in the Parramatta area and was recently assaulted in my cab. I reported the incident to the police and they in-turn have charged the people involved. The case is due in court in February. In the meantime, I am now suffering anxiety attacks and I am not able to work. Am I able to receive any compensation, if I’m self-employed?
