Jimmy Savile – Compensation Advice for Victims

Jimmy Savile


NEIL Hudgell Solicitors can confirm that we are currently representing a client who is seeking compensation as an alleged victim of sexual abuse at the hands of former television presenter Jimmy Savile.

It comes as adverts have been placed in a number of newspapers in a bid to ensure all alleged victims of Saville are aware they must apply for compensation within the next six weeks under a national scheme for which claims can be made against Savile’s estate, the BBC and the NHS.

About 140 people have told police they were attacked by the DJ in hospitals or on BBC premises before he died in October 2011, aged 84, and this scheme could see each victim claim compensation of up to £60,000.

We at Neil Hudgell Solicitors fully understand that no amount of money can compensate for being a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of Savile, or any other sex attacker.

But it at least offers victims a chance to secure some form of justice for their suffering – particularly given that Savile himself managed to avoid the punishment and sentence he deserved – and perhaps even more importantly, the support they need.

Of course, the consequences the abuse victims endured will not disappear following financial compensation.

We deal with many cases of this nature, although not so high-profile, and our team of sexual abuse case lawyers see first-hand how the psychological scars of sexual abuse stays with victims for the rest of their lives.

However, our experience also tells us that financial compensation can help victims of sexual abuse take those very difficult first steps when looking to start rebuilding their lives.

This can be through using the money to cover the costs associated with the care and support needed to help start looking forward again, or perhaps by covering for the loss of earnings if an individual is finding it difficult to return to work.

We are already acting on behalf of one client in this case, and would be happy to help more victims seek the compensation they deserve.

Although the scheme will be open for a year, in which time it is hoped all claims will be paid, it is imperative that victims act now and register before June 3.

You can be assured that we will handle your case not only with complete confidentiality, but also with sympathy, sensitivity and understanding to help you through a difficult time.
