  • Abuse within a hospital

Claiming compensation following abuse in adulthood

Talking to a lawyer about your abuse can be difficult. You may have fears and anxieties which is why we recommend you first consult one of our accredited adult abuse specialists listed below. Time limits apply for some abuse claims, but you may be able to claim compensation even if the abuse occurred a long time ago.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
