Can I Claim Compensation for Abuse when I was a Child?
Although it may be many years before you speak out about the abuse you experienced as a child, you may still be able to claim compensation for child abuse.
For many years, some of the most vulnerable abuse victims across the UK have been unable to claim compensation, because of what’s known as the “same roof” rule.
But in these types of abuse cases, the choice as to whom they lived with and where they lived was often outside their control.
