Why Claim Compensation for Abuse?
Our Abuse Claims Solicitors can help victims of abuse access the support they need.
We’ve been helping abuse victims claim their legal rights for more than 20 years, and have introduced our clients to a large network of support and survivor groups across the country.
Our abuse claims solicitors said, “We've been advising the survivors of child abuse for over 25 years, almost since the media started picking up on it. I have seen the support sector grow from nothing to a wider spread of dedicated groups, who constantly struggle for funding to enable them to survive.
“All the groups I am aware of cannot cope with the massive demand for support, so prevalent is abuse in our society. Whilst openness and the ability to disclose confidently is welcomed, there is not the countrywide service available to support victims, nor the appropriate signposting from public bodies, usually due to lack of awareness.
“More importantly there is a lack of funding available to enable many groups to operate efficiently.
"I am a member of the APPG, and am not surprised by the result of its investigations. It reflects my professional experience.”

In many abuse compensation cases, making a claim isn’t about financial gain. Instead, getting compensation represents a valuable recognition that what happened to them was wrong, and helps survivors gain a sense of closure.
Taking legal action can also significantly aid the survivor’s recovery process, as the compensation they receive can help them get appropriate treatment such as counselling, so they can rebuild their lives.
