Deadline for Savile victims approaches

Victims of Jimmy Savile have been advised that all claims against the Savile estate must be brought by 3rd June, 2014.

What is the scheme?

A compensation scheme has been sanctioned by Mr Justice Sales. This follows an agreement between the BBC, the NHS, lawyers representing some of Savile’s alleged victims, and the executer of Savile’s estate.

Around 140 people have reported that they have suffered abuse at the hands of the former DJ and TV personality, who died in 2011 aged 84.

The scheme is set to provide over £3m in compensation. Payments have been capped at £60,000 per claim.

The scheme does not guarantee pay outs, but will help to provide a framework within which claims can be investigated.

The president of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers, Peter Garsden, has assured that all claims will be thoroughly scrutinised.

He said:

“It’s not a case of you simply having to fill in a form and you get some money”.”For those who do come forward they are absolutely entitled to some compensation.
People who make legitimate claims for this money, one of the things
it could do is buy them some very good therapy.”
