Domestic Abuse Sexual Abuse Violent Crime Fatal Claims Criminal Injuries

Expertise

Stacey joined Hudgell Solicitors in 2013 and has specialised within the Criminal Injuries team since it was first founded. She has developed a caseload where she represents many victims of serious, violent crimes, including domestic violence, sexual abuse and fatal claims.

Stacey is experienced in ensuring the process of submitting cases for damages to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) is made the least daunting as possible for her clients, working to ensure all relevant and required statements and paperwork are secured from relevant bodies and submitted for consideration. She has, in many cases, ensured higher settlements have been secured for her clients through claiming for physical and psychological injuries, loss of earnings and as victims of sexual assault. Stacey also attends appeal hearings on behalf of clients.

I understand being a victim of violent crime is never something people want to consider, and therefore when it happens people need dedicated, considerate and professional support. I also appreciate that the thought of instructing a solicitor can be a fearful and daunting experience. I pride myself on my empathy with my clients and approach each and every case as its own, as there are no set rules for how people handle what has happened to them, and how quickly they come to terms and cope with such an incident, or in a lot of cases, a period of abuse. From single assaults to years of child abuse and domestic violence, nothing makes me prouder than being able to find some justice for my clients and to secure compensation for them to assist with their future.

Significant Cases

I secured £129,600 damages for a client from CICA after he was initially offered just £1,500 when he applied by himself. He had suffered serious physical injuries and was left with ongoing mental injuries suffered after being attacked by three men in his own home. He applied on his own but came to us as he was unhappy with the offers he received. His final settlement took into account not only his physical injuries, but also the psychological damage he suffered for more than five years. We also highlighted how the attack on him had caused significant loss of earnings – which we calculated – as he had not been well enough mentally to work.

I was also delighted to secure £22,000 damages for a 28-year-old woman who had been a victim of repeated sexual abuse and rape by her father over a number of years. In this case the original offer made to her was significantly lower as CICA had not checked all police records.  We appealed this and obtained the full crime reports and statements. This was a very brave lady who said she ‘finally felt listened to’ and supported, which made me very proud.
