Sexual Abuse Compensation Claims
Sexual abuse is a tragic crime that can have lasting emotional, psychological and physical effects for its victims. No amount of money will ever make up for your suffering if you have been the victim of sexual abuse, but compensation can help to significantly improve your quality of life as you look to move on. At JMW, our team has the experience, expertise and compassion necessary to secure the compensation you deserve should you wish to make a sexual abuse compensation claim.
For more information, speak to our friendly and understanding team by calling us on 0800 054 6570 or by completing our online enquiry form, enabling us to give you a call back. We appreciate that discussing sensitive matters of this nature can be very daunting, but our experts are here to provide all of the guidance and support you need.
What Our Clients Say
If you think you may be eligible for a sexual abuse compensation claim, our solicitors can help you work out your options.
We won't pressure you into doing anything you don't want to, and we will outline the best way to get the compensation you deserve.
You can claim compensation for the following:
- The incident(s) of sexual abuse
- Any psychological or psychiatric damage caused
- The cost of therapy or treatments required following abuse
Sexual abuse claims are not only made against individuals; they can also be made against various organisations if they failed to protect you from the abuse. These can include:
- Local authorities
- The church
- Care homes
- Children's homes
The friendly and approachable team at JMW understands that it can be very difficult to open up and talk about sexual abuse. We know that recollecting such terrible events can be very traumatic, and that is why we always aim to make you feel safe and secure, and will do our very best to ensure that what can seem a daunting process is made as hassle-free as possible.
Once you decide to make a claim, we strongly advise you get in touch with us so that we can get your claim underway. This is because in most circumstances there is a two-year time period to make a sexual abuse claim after the incident has occurred. In exceptional circumstances, such as historic sexual abuse, this time period can be extended. However, in order to make sure you get the justice you deserve, once you are confident that you want to make a claim we would advise you contact us so that we can make sure your voice is heard.
Even though the government organisation the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) funds compensation given to victims of sexual abuse, you need to make sure you have a strong case.
Our specialists will help you do that, gathering all of the evidence required to help you get the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled, talking you through all the work we undertake on your behalf in an easy-to-understand manner.
Talking to our experts will give you the peace of mind that your claim is in safe hands and we will endeavour to make sure you feel comfortable throughout the process. We will always be here to provide the support and advice you need throughout the course of your claim.
