    Abuse cases

    Abuse claims

    The consequences of neglect and abuse can be devastating. Sufferers are often left feeling isolated, alone, and unsure of what to do next.

    We have experience in dealing with cases of physical and psychological abuse, and know how difficult it can be for our clients to re-live a past experience. Whatever you have been through, you can be safe in the knowledge that we will be at your side every step of the way. We will also refer you to dedicated support organisations who will be there to support and care for you at every stage.

    We understand that recovery can be a long process – especially if your experience has been particularly traumatic – so in every instance, we’ll take as much time as you need and keep everything completely confidential. For many of our clients, claiming compensation has helped in their recuperation and provided some much-needed closure.

    If you, or someone you know, is an abuse survivor, our specialist team can help you to take the next steps in moving on with your lives. Consequences of abuse can be physical and psychological, and for these reasons we handle each abuse claim with sensitivity. At Watermans, we offer you the strength and support you need to claim compensation from those responsible.

    We understand that financial compensation will never remove the effects of the abuse and that these will remain with you for the rest of your life. The compensation is designed to help you move on from this distressing experience and improve aspects of your life. A claim for compensation can be made against your abuser or the company or organisation who engaged your abuser.

    Making a claim

    How do I make an abuse claim?

    Abuse compensation claims are complex issues which require sensitivity and careful handling by people specially trained in this area. Abuse is a highly emotional issue which results in physical and psychological trauma that can never be erased. Anyone who has suffered abuse can, in time, move on from their distressing experience; however, the mental scars remain.

    It is important that you use a specialist abuse personal injury solicitor that is capable of handling your claim, to help you to move forward in your life. That is where we come in.

    At Watermans, we employ specialist abuse personal injury solicitors, to take the hassle out of the legal side of things, so that you can concentrate on recovering from your ordeal and regain control over your life.

    We operate on a no win no fee basis, meaning that if we don’t succeed in winning your case, then you don’t have to pay any solicitors fees. We understand how difficult these situations can be for you, and we handle the legal process so that you don’t have to.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for an abuse claim?
