Child Abuse Compensation Claim Solicitors in Manchester

Child Abuse Compensation Claim Solicitors in Manchester

Our team of expert personal injury solicitors specialise in physical and sexual child abuse claims in Manchester, and we always make sure to put compassion at the centre of everything we do here at Farleys. Child abuse survivors often quality for legal aid for their case, but if you find (for whatever reason) that you don’t, then rest assured our team can usually take claims on a no-win, no fee basis.

Our top priority is on making sure that you feel as comfortable and secure as you can. We’ve now got more than six decades of experience behind us, so we understand exactly how difficult it can be for sexual abuse survivors to discuss the abuse they’ve endured. For that reason alone, we’ll never ask you to reveal all of the sensitive details until you’re ready to do so. When we sit down for our initial discussions with you, we’ll only ever ask you for enough information to determine if your child abuse claim in Manchester is likely to succeed.

You can expect our solicitors to be honest, straightforward and tactful at all times, and keep you informed of every legal option available to you at every stage of the process. Ultimately, the final decision on how to proceed is all up to you.

How long do I have to make a child abuse claim in Manchester?

Technically, you’ve got three years to bring a child abuse claim in Manchester from the date that the abuse occurred. However, in practice the law is very flexible on timescales, far more so than it is in other legal areas. This is largely because there’s an implicit understanding that child abuse survivors often find it incredibly difficult to speak out about the abuse they’ve endured.

It’s not unusual for people to go years – or in some cases even decades – before they’re ready to speak about their experiences. Some of the most common barriers include:

  • Fear of not being believed
  • Feelings of shame or guilt
  • Fear of the abuser, especially after intimidation or explicit threats of violence
  • Difficulty in articulating the nature or scale of the abuse
  • Not understanding that what happened was wrong
  • Trying to protect family or loved ones (or even the abuser themselves)
  • Feelings of powerlessness
  • Suppression of the memories of the abuse
  • Struggles with the psychological impact of the abuse

If any of the above sounds like something you’ve experienced – or you’re currently experiencing – then we are here to help you at Farleys. Even if there’s been a significant passage of time since the date when the abuse occurred, we’re still dedicated to getting you justice for your child abuse claim in Manchester.

Feel free to contact us as soon as you feel able. However, it’s worth highlighting here that generally the sooner the better, as it makes it easier to collect key evidence that might end up being crucial to proving that the abuse took place.

Will my confidentiality be protected?

Yes. Your right to confidentiality is enshrined in UK law. With more than six decades of experience behind us here at Farleys, you can trust us when we say that child abuse survivors are never named in the media, even in the most high profile of cases. There are very rare exceptions, and these generally involve survivors voluntarily waiving their right to anonymity. That’s not a decision that is ever taken lightly, and it’s certainly never one that you’ll be forced into making.

What is the Child Abuse Claims Process in Manchester?

As you’d probably expect, child abuse claims in Manchester are subject to a fairly involved legal process. This is by design, as it ensures that survivors have enough time to collect key evidence, and present their case for the very best chance of success.

Here’s how it begins:

We start with a free case assessment with one of our expert solicitors, at which time we’ll assess the likelihood of success for your claim. We recognise that this can be a very difficult conversation to have, so your comfort and security will remain our absolute highest priority throughout.

Allocation to a specialist who will handle your case. This specialist will act as your main point of contact from this stage onwards – minimising the number of people who know the details of your circumstances, and keeping your confidentiality intact.

Collection of evidence. This is arguably the most crucial stage, and depending on the nature of your circumstances, may sometimes involve bringing in outside experts such as a psychologist or psychiatrist. If this is necessary, you can rely on us to provide you with close support throughout.

Tally of compensation amount. We understand that financial compensation may not be the most important aspect of your case for you, but our focus at this point is to secure you an amount that reflects the gravity of your case – as it can help to provide you with valuable support in other areas of your life, and your future.

Settling your claim. When we’re ready, and we’ve collected all the relevant evidence, we’ll then present all details to the person or party responsible. We should mention here that very few cases go to court, as the majority are resolved long before then. However, if yours is one of the very few cases that does, you can always rely on us to be here to support you every step of the way.
