Racial Abuse Claims

Racial abuse and discrimination of any kind is completely unacceptable and thankfully something which is much less common in modern society than in decades past.

There can never be any justification for any person being discriminated against because of their race, colour, nationality, heritage, national origin or ethnic origin.

Sadly, such distressing and appalling behaviour has impacted on the lives of many people, including children who suffered racial abuse by adults who were, at times, responsible for their care and well-being.

Our race discrimination solicitors are passionate about supporting anyone who suffered racial abuse at any time in their lives and holding those responsible to account.

The 1970s and 1980s were sadly blighted by prejudicial behaviour in many walks of life, including through the attitudes of police officers towards young Asian and black men, who were often subjected to a wide range of unfair treatment.

An issue which has been subject to significant media attention has also been the world of sport, with a number of former youth footballers of professional clubs alleging racial and sexual abuse whilst trying to forge careers in the game.

Hudgell Solicitors has a track record of holding both people and organisations to account when abuse has taken place, particularly with regard to children and vulnerable people, for whom such racial discrimination may have had a long-lasting impact on their lives.

Our team of racial discrimination solicitors are determined that such behaviour is never considered something which was accepted ‘back in the day’. It is something we passionately believe should be challenged to enable those subjected to such abuse to seek redress in law.

If you or someone you know has suffered because of their race, nationality or heritage and would like to speak to our specialist team in confidence, please get in touch with our racial discrimination solicitors to see if you’re entitled to compensation – we promise to support you every step of the way.

What type of racial abuse claims do we handle?

The distress and insecurity that racial discrimination and abuse can cause in the mind of victims is difficult to imagine or relate to, even more so in circumstances where children were subjected to abuse by adults. Sadly, this was the case for many young people when they were growing up, particularly in environments where there were racial minorities.

We realise many people feel too embarrassed or intimidated about what has happened to come forward, but our team at Hudgell Solicitors are dedicated to helping people speak out.

Our experts are highly experienced in supporting survivors of all forms of abuse, including incidents which happened recently and cases of historical abuse.

Acts of direct racial discrimination and abuse could include:

        • The use of inappropriate language or racial comments towards you – made by colleagues and/or your employer.
        • Harassment, bullying or victimisation.
        • Detrimental treatment because of your race.
        • Unwanted racial conduct towards you.
        • Sacked or dismissed on basis of your race.

Thankfully, such deplorable incidents are no longer as common, but if it’s taken you decades to speak out about the abuse you suffered, it can sometimes still be possible to launch legal action to deliver the justice you deserve.
If you believe you’ve been subjected to racial discrimination, we will seek to help you to gain redress for your pain and suffering by pursuing a racial discrimination and abuse claim.

How long have I got to make a claim?

Even if the racism took place a long time ago, do not let it stop your pursuit of justice. Our discrimination specialists will advise you whether you will be able to make a claim and will fight to get your case heard.
If you want our racial discrimination solicitors to investigate your case, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can gather as much evidence as possible to properly prepare your claim.

What funding options are available?

At Hudgell Solicitors, we pursue cases on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis – to help you to achieve some closure without any financial risks. If we agree to take on your claim, we will explain all the options and advise you on the best way to fund for your case.
If you give us honest and accurate instructions – and fully cooperate with us to try to win your case, you won’t have to pay a penny, other than an agreed percentage of any damages settlement you receive.

“It is highly significant that, following our legal representation, and despite their being no legal precedent or law for it, we have secured damages for all of the families we have represented in the case, recognising the huge impact Bradbury’s offending had not only on the children themselves, but also their wider families and the devastating impact it has had on their lives.”
