Caitlin Moore, 16, said it was "unfair" the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is planning to end payments for claims below £2500 and significantly reduce payments for claims below £11,000.
Ms Moore, from Glenrothes, received £2800 from the MoJ's Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICS) after she was left with two black eyes and a neck injury when she was set upon by a gang of seven girls in Lochmore Meadows Country Park last January. She also suffered a split lip and internal bruising.
She said: "I don't think it's fair at all. I was in a lot of pain. It really affected me. But the compensation made me feel like I was getting something back."
The CICS applies to anyone injured in an act of violence in Scotland, England or Wales, and payouts can be made even if no-one is convicted.
A campaign against the cuts has been launched by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. Ms Moore said: "I don't really understand it. I think it's quite shocking, to be honest."
The teenager, 17 in November, hopes to put her payout towards a car.
Her mother, Victoria Littlejohn, added: "The compensation is in recognition of what she's been through. It's terrible they're looking to cut it for people who have been hurt."
