If you have been affected by sexual abuse, speaking to a member of our team may be the first time that you have discussed your experience. This is common among our clients, many of whom wish to approach the matter away from the attention of family and friends.
At Hampson Hughes Solicitors, we offer confidentiality at all times. Whatever your situation, we’re ready to talk you through your sexual abuse claim and your legal options with regards to accessing additional support, and if you wish, considering whether to pursue a sexual abuse compensation claim.
Following any instance of sexual abuse, you may experience a range of emotions. You could feel conflicted – wishing to act but not wishing to bring attention to yourself – or not wanting to be responsible for the consequences that the abuser may face, but believing that their actions should be recognised.
At Hampson Hughes, our sexual abuse claim solicitors are experienced in supporting sexual abuse victims, and understand that in response to this conflict of emotions, there are many common coping strategies:
What is important to remember is that a coping strategy is not typically a permanent solution. If you feel that you are ready to begin your sexual abuse claim, we can help. We have a team of experienced sexual abuse solicitors, so depending on your circumstances, we could help you to access specialist services that offer dedicated support in cases of sexual abuse. For further information on how we could help, contact us today.
The spectrum of sexual offences for which an abuse claim can be made also includes instances of non-physical sexual abuse. Non-physical sexual abuse can relate to any emotional distress caused by threatening behaviour in a sexual context. If you believe that you have experienced non-physical sexual abuse, speak to our expert team of sexual abuse solicitors today for free information and instant professional legal advice. With regards to a sexual abuse claim, examples of non-physical sexual abuse include:
For anyone who has suffered sexual abuse and is considering making a legal claim, one of their main concerns may be with regards to what time limits apply to their claim. The usual limit for personal injury claims is 3 years, but this is extended to 3 years from their 18th birthday if the incident occured when they were a child.
However it must be remembered that Courts have a discretion to dis-apply any time limit. In matters involving sexual abuse this is often the case so please do not let this stop you getting in touch with our expert legal team to receive confidential and sensitive legal advice.
