Attorney Mike Venter said a civil claim was being considered against the Paralympian, who is charged with murdering Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine’s Day.
A source close to the family said no decision had yet been taken. Pistorius (26), who has admitted to firing at Reeva through a locked bathroom door at his Pretoria home mistaking her to be an intruder, was granted bail last month and will return to court in June.
