All firms will probably provide the first half hour of your consultation free of charge, either by telephone or in person.

Many victims find it difficult to move on following abuse and require counselling and therapy to get their lives back on track, which can be unaffordable without first seeking financial compensation.

Types of adult abuse

  • Abuse within a hospital
  • Abuse in the workplace
  • Abuse within a religious institution

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.
