This is a probably a long shot, but here I go. Thirty-four years ago, when I was 14 years old, I was staying at Melbourne with my Aunt as my legal guardian. My cousin who was also 14-years old violently assaulted me with a 1x1 inch garden stake, causing me to have a dozen stitches on my forehead. This incident was never reported to the authorities and brushed under the carpet by my family. Recently, on Facebook he has bragged about this assault and admitted to it. I would like to settle this inequity and gain some peace of mind. What are the chances of me seeking legal retribution and compensation in this personal iinjury matter with a positive outcome in my favor?
