Sexual Abuse, Child Abuse and Sexual Assault
Slee Blackwell’s specialist abuse solicitors are nationally respected as one of the leading legal teams in the country dealing in the difficult and often traumatic area of claiming abuse compensation on behalf of people who have suffered sexual abuse, child abuse and sexual assault.
Led by solicitor Samantha Robson, our experienced team act with sympathy, commitment and compassion for victims of sexual abuse, child abuse and sexual assault. We have a wealth of experience in this sensitive area. We will listen to your story with patience and treat you with respect and sensitivity.
We understand that victims of sexual abuse, child abuse and sexual assault often repress their experiences until adulthood. Sometimes victims may have been unwilling to act due to the anguish it would cause to family and friends. At Slee Blackwell, our lawyers understand how hard it is for victims of abuse to approach a solicitor, much less reveal the full details of their case to a stranger. We recognise how difficult this process can be, and we strive to make the abuse compensation process as simple and as painless as possible. We act with the utmost integrity and are committed to the belief that taking legal action to redress the injustice that has been done is part of the recovery process.
If you, or a loved one has been the victim of child abuse, sexual abuse or sexual assault and wish to seek abuse compensation then contact our legal team for a free chat. We offer free over-the-phone and face-to-face consultations, and it goes without saying that anything that is mentioned to us during a consultations is completely and utterly confidential.
We work very closely with support agencies and other charities assisting victims of sexual abuse. We have been successful in claiming abuse compensation for victims of child abuse, sexual assault and sexual abuse against a large number of organisations and individuals including:
- Care homes and institutions.
- Religious organisations, including the Catholic Church.
- Actions against public and private schools, including boarding schools.
- Actions against professionals who have held a position of trust.
- Abuse within the workplace.
- Rape and sexual abuse within the home.
- Date rape and Criminal Injury Compensation (CICA) claims.
Our lawyers are supported by a team of experts, including doctors, counsellors, psychiatrists and specialist barristers, to ensure that your claim for abuse compensation is well supported and the anguish you have suffered is documented and substantiated.
Victims of child abuse and sexual abuse often believe that they are not entitled to abuse compensation because if the abuse happened many years earlier. This is not correct. Slee Blackwell have been successful obtaining justice and compensation for victims of abuse that occurred a significant time before the claim was made. Times have changed and the Courts are now sympathetic to the reasons why such delays occur.
We are proud of our commitment to obtaining abuse compensation for child abuse, sexual abuse and sexual assault.
