Abuse compensation claims advice

Speaking out about any abuse that you’ve suffered can be extremely difficult, and doing so can take a considerable amount of courage. Fortunately, there is now much more openness around the subject of abuse which has led to changes in the law and a change in the public mindset.

Whilst abuse remains a hugely difficult area to talk about, especially for those who have suffered, it’s important to remember that these harmful acts can happen to people from all walks of life; from children and teenagers right through to adults – male and female.

If you’re a survivor of abuse or sexual abuse, either as an adult or a child, you may be eligible to make an abuse compensation claim.

At Hudgell Solicitors, we realise coming forward can be traumatic and we’ll always treat you with care, respect and compassion. Our highly-trained team of abuse solicitors understand the difficulties you may have discussing the topic, and appreciate why you may be fearful of making a claim.
