If you’re thinking about making a claim for compensation because you’ve suffered child abuse, choosing the right solicitor for you can be really important.
You need a specialist lawyer you can trust to help you through your claim every step of the way, and who truly understands how difficult and upsetting it can be for someone to claim compensation for childhood abuse. Our child abuse law team is led by award-winning solicitor, David Greenwood. David has an outstanding reputation in the field, and in addition to his legal work is an active campaigner for the rights of victims of childhood abuse. In his many years working for victims of abuse, David Greenwood has helped to change the law, extending the time limit for claiming compensation in abuse cases. He continues to push the boundaries of the law so that those who have suffered abuse can gain compensation and achieve justice.
Child abuse compensation claims can be extremely complex, and the law in this area is constantly evolving, so it’s essential to choose a solicitor who, like David Greenwood and the rest of our dedicated team of lawyers, specialises in child abuse claims work. Our child abuse solicitors are specialists who focus exclusively on helping people who have suffered child abuse in the past to claim compensation. They have been successful in securing compensation in many complex child abuse claims, including large group actions, and will handle your claim with care, sensitivity and professionalism.
Even if the abuse took place in the past, you could still claim compensation
Members of our child abuse claims team were behind a landmark case that led to the House of Lords ruling which removed time limits to bring claims for child abuse. We know it can take many years for victims to be able to talk about the childhood abuse they have suffered. No matter how long ago the abuse took place, it may still be possible to make a claim.
If you have suffered child abuse in the past, and would like to talk to someone in confidence about what happened to you and whether you could make a claim, call us on: 0800 138 4700.
It’s free to find out whether you could make a claim for compensation, and there’s no obligation to go forward with a claim.
I’ve already got a solicitor handling my claim – can I change solicitors?
The short answer is yes, you could change solicitors during your case, but it’s important that any move you make is in your best interests. Child abuse claims are often complex, and so the best way to ensure you’re getting the right advice is to instruct specialist child abuse claims solicitors. It’s also extremely important that you trust and have confidence in your solicitor. If your current lawyer is not a specialist in child abuse claims, or you are concerned about how your claim is currently progressing, it is worth talking to our specialist solicitors, in complete confidence, to check you are getting the best advice.
