Slater and Gordon Senior Abuse Lawyer Liz Dux appeared across the media as victims of Jimmy Savile learnt the compensation scheme which had been subject to an appeal would go-ahead.
The Court of Appeal judged that the Savile compensation scheme, which was already in place, could continue dismissing the challenge by some of the beneficiaries of the estate.
Liz Dux said, “The ruling will bring great relief to Savile’s many victims who have been living with the uncertainty of not knowing whether they would be blocked in their claims.
“They just want some recognition of what they have been through so they can then be able to move on with their lives. Hundreds of Savile’s victims, who are represented by Slater and Gordon Lawyers, have already signed up to the Savile compensation scheme in the hope that they would receive some form of justice without the need for drawn out and costly litigation.”
