Child Abuse Solicitors:
Funding your compensation claim

The thought of legal fees can be worrying for many people considering claiming compensation for childhood abuse. The good news is, Switalskis can usually help you to secure funding for your claim.

We will talk to you about the options for funding the legal fees for your claim during your initial consultation. Most cases are funded in one of two ways:

Legal aid funding

Many child abuse claims are eligible for legal aid. Whether or not legal aid will be available to fund your claim will depend on two factors:

  • whether you meet the criteria for financial eligibility; and
  • the likelihood of your claim being successfully concluded.

We are very experienced in handling legal aid applications and will assess your eligibility as part of your initial consultation.

No win, no fee

Legal aid isn’t available for every claim, but if it turns out that you are not eligible for legal aid, we may still be able to help you with your claim on a no win, no fee basis. We can assess whether you qualify for our no win, no fee scheme at your initial consultation.

If you would like to talk to a specialist solicitor, in confidence, about making a claim for compensation, call us on 0800 138 4700, or complete our contact form and we’ll call you back.
