The lawyers in our abuse team care passionately about their work on behalf of abuse survivors.

For guidance on making a sex abuse compensation claim call our free legal helpline on 0808 139 1597

Our specialist lawyers have won a number of awards for their work in this field and in 2018 we were honoured to be named by the NSPCC as a ‘Childhood Champion’ corporate partner.

We are recommended by the independent legal directory, the Legal 500 and are members of ACAL, the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.

We offer legal help to survivors of abuse throughout England and Wales, providing a free and completely confidential legal helpline.

We offer a flexible range of funding options for sex abuse compensation claims, including No Win, No Fee.

No Win, No Fee funding means that victims of abuse need never let financial worries prevent them from seeking the justice they are entitled to.

We have an excellent track record in successfully recovering compensation for survivors of sex abuse, with claims being made against individuals, employers and institutions such as schools, religious and youth organisations or local authorities.

We can also assist with claims against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, including reviews and appeals. We have enjoyed a number of notable successes where CICA compensation has been dramatically increased following our involvement; in one case increasing our client’s award from £27,000 to over £180,000.

In many instances the abuse may have been carried out several years or even decades earlier. This should not put you off from pursuing a claim and we are experienced in dealing with cases of ‘historic abuse’.

Our lawyers are always happy to have an informal and confidential chat with you on the telephone or answer questions by email. They appreciate that survivors of abuse need to be free to take matters at their own pace and are able to work with you one step at a time.

You can call our free sex abuse compensation claim helpline in confidence on 0808 139 1597 or, if you prefer, you can send an email to us at info@abusecompensation.co.uk
