Many adults have suffered sexual abuse, physical abuse, or mental abuse. This abuse can result in psychiatric and physical injury for the victim. Anyone is a potential target of abuse, but people with learning difficulties and the elderly are most vulnerable.
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 care home
- Abuse within a hospital
- Abuse in the workplace
- Abuse within a religious institution
