As children, we put our faith in adults and organisations - trusting them to protect and care for us. Sadly this trust can sometimes be abused and children may suffer physical or psychological abuse by a relative, carer, or a stranger – in their own home, at a care home, school, public place, or institute.
If you suffered abuse as a child, it can take a long time to feel ready to talk about your experiences. But by talking to a legal expert, you can take the important first step in getting your story heard. Often, the abuse may have occurred many years ago and although there are time restrictions on claims, these can often be overcome - so no matter what timescales are involved, it’s important to get in touch. Child abuse cases can be brought against the individuals who committed the abuse or the organisation that employed the individual.
At QualitySolicitors we help the victims of child abuse receive the justice they deserve.
For many people, bringing a child abuse claim against someone isn’t about money but is about ensuring abuse doesn’t remain hidden and finding peace after potentially years of hurt and suffering. Through the legal process we can help you find this peace and give you the opportunity to look forward to the future.
Abuse law is highly specialised and not all solicitors take cases in this particular area. That’s why it’s important to talk to us because we specialise in abuse cases. Not only do our child abuse solicitors have the knowledge and expertise to present the best possible case on your behalf but they are also used to talking to people about sensitive issues and will quickly put you at ease if you feel nervous about speaking about your experiences.
Discussing your childhood experiences can be upsetting but we will do all we can to make the process as easy as possible. In the initial discussions, we’ll only ask the questions we really need to in order to determine if you have a case. We’ll advise if we think you have a case and if so, will take control to manage the case and support you through the entire process -from filling in the initial forms and collating evidence to finding witnesses and where necessary, representing you at a court hearing.
For a confidential chat with a child abuse solicitor, contact us today. We know that speaking out takes courage and so we’ll listen to your story with respect and compassion. Our free first advice promise means that there's no charge for our initial conversation. So we can talk through the process with you and answer any questions you may have without it costing you a penny.
