Victims of physical and/or sexual abuse may not realise that they are entitled to claim compensation for injuries and losses sustained as a result of the abuse.
Whether you have been abused recently or many years ago as a child, you are still entitled to make a claim for the physical and psychological harm caused by abuse. Abuse claims are treated in the same way as other injuries and you can therefore claim for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused, as well as loss of earnings and other losses where appropriate. Compensation can give victims important financial support to help them re-build their lives.
