Can I claim compensation for sexual abuse?
If you suffered abuse as a child, you may be able to claim compensation for what happened to you. You are eligible to make a claim if you are now an adult and you were abused as a child, or if you are still a child with assistance from an adult.
Claiming compensation for abuse could help you to rebuild your life following a traumatic incident or series of events. The amount secured will also help to cover:
Loss of earnings incurred if you have suffered a mental illness because of the abuse
Paying for private counselling or therapy to help you
There are a number of different avenues that we can explore when claiming compensation for abuse. These include:
Suing an abuser or organisation that failed in their duty of care to you
Making a claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)
Getting a criminal compensation order if the abuser is successfully prosecuted
How much compensation can I claim for child abuse?
Due to the complex and sensitive nature of child abuse cases, it is difficult to estimate the amount of compensation you will receive if your claim is successful. Speaking to a solicitor about your circumstances will give you a better understanding of the likelihood of successfully claiming compensation for the trauma you have experienced. Our team is happy to help you and will do our utmost to ensure that you are able to move forward with your life.
