Child Abuse Compensation Claims

If you are a survivor of child abuse or are the parent or guardian of a child that has been abused, you may be able to claim compensation.

contact us

At Norrie Waite & Slater we appreciate that child abuse cases are of a highly sensitive nature and need to be dealt with in a sympathetic manner. Our child abuse lawyer is able to meet with you at a place of your choice and no pressure will be placed on you to provide all details until you are ready to do so. In some instances we may be able to obtain copies of previous statements provided to police in an attempt to spare you the trauma of having to relive your traumatic experience.

If you find your experience difficult to talk about then you may authorise another person to manage your claim on your behalf although you may have to personally sign documents when necessary.

Child abuse claims can be brought directly against the abuser, their employer, an organisation or the Local Authority. If your claim cannot be brought against an individual then it may be possible to obtain compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. association of child abuse lawyers
