Child Abuse Claims Solicitors
Child Abuse is in the news at the moment. From children’s homes to Jimmy Savile to abuse in sport, it seems as though this is a hidden epidemic that is only very slowly, bit by bit, coming to light.
Politicians, institutions and the media seem to struggle to get to grips with the issue, leaving those personally affected – the survivors who have come forward and those who have not – often feeling confused, let down and, most importantly with a sense that justice has not been done.
Help with Child Abuse Claims
We have a lot of experience of helping the survivors of Child Abuse attain justice and redress through the Civil Courts and by applications through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
For survivors, bringing a claim is never an easy thing to contemplate; such claims can also be legally challenging – it is important that they are dealt with by sensitive professionals with experience of what can be a difficult and sometimes complex area of the law.
If you think we may be able to help you, it is important not to delay – all cases are subject to time limits and the sooner a claim is started, the more likely it is to succeed.
People bring civil claims for a number of different reasons; to establish responsibility for wrongful conduct; to bring institutions and wrongdoers to account; for compensation for pain, suffering and financial losses; to obtain an apology.
All of these can be valid reasons.
Child abuse is a crime and making a claim is not a substitute for reporting it to the police.
However, if you think we may be able to help you, give us a call on 01227 813400 for an initial free consultation, or if you prefer, use our Web Enquiry form and we will contact you.
