Within our Personal Injury department we have a committed team with special expertise for dealing with Physical and Sexual Abuse Claims. We are dedicated to assisting those who have been the victim of such abuse, whether they have suffered through childhood or adulthood, including victims that were abused by people in positions of trust.
Every case is individual and it is important that aside of any monetary claim for Abuse Compensation, we assist victims of abuse in achieving recognition of the trauma that they have suffered and hopefully some closure.
We understand how extremely difficult it can be to come forward and talk about any sexual or physical abuse that you have suffered from and the anxiety that making a claim may bring. Appreciating how traumatic the recollection of events may be, our team will do all that it can to ensure that you feel safe and secure with your Solicitor during the process.
We will handle your claim with sensitivity and understanding and are able to offer an initial consultation. Any consultation will be completely confidential and enable us to take a preliminary view of your case. Claims of this nature can be conducted on a ‘no win no fee’ basis for you.
