Watkins & Gunn highly experienced and discrete Child Abuse lawyers can offer legal advice and support on claims including:
We are dedicated to helping victims of abuse seeking compensation. Representing adults and children distressed by the memory of traumatic emotional, physical or sexual abuses from their past, our legal specialists act for individuals and in group actions, on a national basis.
We can assist with bringing child abuse legal action for historic abuse against schools, foster parents, employers, sports or youth clubs, religious or charitable organisations, social services, etc.
We also act for children – ‘Looked After Children’ – who have suffered from poor care by local authorities and where the Care System has failed them.
You can use the law to hold your abuser (or those who facilitated it) to account, to get answers, an apology or to seek compensation.
Your privacy is vital. Throughout every stage of the legal process, we keep everything confidential and treat all documents in connection with your case as classified.
Time limits do apply to abuse claims but you may be able to claim compensation even if the abuse occurred many years ago.
We have a legal aid franchise with the Legal Aid Agency and we are committed to public funded work where available but also act for clients with private funding, fixed fees and group funding arrangements where necessary.
