Is it possible to claim compensation if you have been abused?
If you have been physically or sexually abused, there has been a criminal offence committed. Not only this, but you have also suffered physical and emotional pain. So, like any other personal injury case, you should be compensated for your suffering.
The compensation will cover things like loss of earnings if you have been unable to work, any treatment you have needed since the abuse took place, and will also take into pain and suffering.
If you or a loved one has been abused, our friendly panel will talk you through the claiming process, step-by-step.
Who pays the compensation for Sexual and Physical Abuse claims?
Compensation claims for sexual and physical abuse are made under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is a Government scheme that was created to compensate victims of criminal behaviour, for their injuries, suffering and any loss of earnings.
If our panel of solicitors believe you have a suitable case, they may be able to fund it under a Contingency Fee Agreement, which works in much the same way as a No Win, No Fee agreement.
How much compensation can I claim for Sexual and Physical Abuse?
There is no exact amount of compensation for sexual and physical abuse claims as each case is different. Our panel of abuse lawyers will assess your case, based on the extent of the physical, emotional and/or psychological injury.
We will, with medical advice, assess whether further medical treatment is needed, as well as calculate any money lost as a result of the abuse.
What is the most common type of abuse cases?
Our panel have experience in a number of abuse cases that vary in severity and circumstance. Some of the most common types of cases are:
- Abuse suffered from within the family
- Abuse suffered as a child in local authority or foster care
- Abuse suffered from a person of trust, such as a priest or teacher
- Abuse of the elderly in a nursing or care home
- Sexual of physical abuse as an adult
- A failure by Social Services to protect a child from abuse
If you have suffered sexual or physical abuse, let our friendly, confidential panel of expert abuse solicitors be by your side.
Is there a time limit for bringing Sexual and Physical Abuse claims?
Sexual and physical abuse claims fall under personal injury law. This means you have three years to make a claim.
However, due to the nature of these type of claims, the court often exercises discretion to extend the limitation.
In addition to this, cases of sexual or physical abuse must be taken to the police before you can claim compensation. There is no time limit, however, for making a police report, meaning historical child abuse claims can be lodged years after the initial abuse occurred.
We realise talking to someone about your sexual or physical is a tough thing to do. Making that first step could be the first step to recovery, and also the first step to deserved compensation for your pain.
Will my case be anonymous, or will everyone find out if I claim?
The law makes it abundantly clear – victims of sexual and physical abuse are entitled to proper criminal and civil justice with total anonymity. If you wish to stay anonymous throughout your case, you can rest assured that will be adhered to. Our panel of solicitors are mindful of this and are specialists at keeping your identity hidden throughout the claims process.
