Child abuse

You only have to open a newspaper or turn on the evening news to hear of cases of child abuse, but there are many more cases that do not make the headlines and are handled privately. For those that have suffered abuse as a child the impact can be life changing, with long-term physical and psychological suffering. Many victims struggle to hold down permanent work and form relationships.

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

 

In many cases, it is possible to make a claim against the abuser themselves. In other cases it may be more appropriate to make a claim against an abuser's employer or other organisation. Whilst no one expects compensation to erase the memories, it can help people to move on with their lives and bring a sense of closure.

Types of child abuse

  • Mental torture
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse

Claiming compensation for child abuse

There is no excuse for child abuse and those responsible should be brought to justice. If you have suffered abuse as a child you should discuss the details with one of our specialist accredited child abuse lawyers list on this page.

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