Victim of Abuse

We acted for a claimant who had been the victim of a crime, as they were abused.

On the first application to the Authority it was dismissed, as claims usually have to be filed with the Authority within two years of the date of the injury.

Our client was abused as a child and was not emotionally able to disclose the fact to anyone until many years later. Once the information was disclosed, we were able to assist in getting the Authority to agree to deal with the claim and obtained our client an award in excess of £15,000.00.
