If you’re thinking about making a claim for compensation because you’ve suffered child abuse, choosing the right solicitor for you is really important.
Watkins & Gunn’s dedicated team of solicitors – specialise in cases for survivors of abuse who are seeking compensation through the courts. We represent both children and adults often traumatised by recalling events of sexual, physical or emotional abuse in their past. Acting for clients nationwide, in one-off cases and large group actions, we can also assist with applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
We do understand how extremely difficult it is to come forward and talk about any sexual or physical abuse that you have suffered. We know how traumatic the recollection of events can be, and our Solicitors will do all they can to ensure that you feel safe and secure throughout the claims process.
We know it can take many years for victims to be able to talk about the childhood abuse they have suffered. No matter how long ago the abuse took place, it may still be possible to make a claim.
We sue individual abusers, their employers, foster parents, children’s home operators, schools, religious organisations, youth clubs, sports clubs, charitable foundations and social services departments… the list is a long one.
Watkins & Gunn handle all types of sexual and physical abuse claims with complete sensitivity and understanding. We offer a free, confidential consultation which enables our Lawyers to take a preliminary view of the abuse case, and allows the victim to get free legal advice.
Cases can be run on a NO WIN NO FEE basis or in some cases with the benefit of Legal Aid.
Every abuse case is individual and it’s important that aside of any monetary claim for compensation, we help victims of sexual and physical abuse in achieving recognition of the trauma that they have suffered, and hopefully some form of closure. Our specialist team will take clients through the process with skill and sensitivity.
