Types of Sexual or Physical Abuse
If you have been a victim of abuse, making a claim is a very emotional and worrying experience. If you are ready to talk to someone about legal support, we are here to listen to you.
Confidential Legal Support
We understand that making a claim for abuse can be emotional, stressful and upsetting. Our Solicitors will ensure you are treated with the utmost sensitivity, and we have a professional duty to you to ensure all information is held with confidence.
There are several instances when a claim may arise.
These are bodily injuries which include being beaten, hit, smacking, cut, burnt, as well as being confined, or restrained against your will. Any form of physical assault may be considered.
This includes any form of indecent assault or molestation which has involved the forcing of undesired sexual behaviour.
This can involve any form of mental trauma inflicted by threatening behaviour, forced acts, coercion and control, and intimidation. The effects of such psychological trauma may have an adverse impact on you throughout your life;
Neglect can be due to failure to provide basic living needs, such as food, water, heating, adequate housing, and healthcare, or could be due to failure to protect from harm.
Please note that the above list is not exhaustive, or the abuser may have carried out a combination of all of the abuses referred to above.
You may have personally suffered abuse as a child and have now decided to speak out and come forward, or you may be a parent of a child or guardian who has been abused.
Coming forward and deciding to speak with a Solicitor to discuss matters which are very personal and traumatic is a huge step, it is, therefore, important that you instruct Solicitors who understand and can deal with your case in a truly empathetic and supportive manner.
All initial enquires with our legal team are free, confidential, and there’s no obligation to proceed. Our Solicitor can arrange to meet in your home, by telephone, Skype, or in our office; whichever is best for you. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when making the initial step to tell us what has happened.
