Abuse Claims in Hospitals

Farleys Solicitors LLP are leading specialists in abuse claims, acting on behalf of victims who have suffered the trauma of physical, psychological and sexual abuse.

As a firm who places the interests of our clients at the heart of what we do, we work tirelessly to ensure the individuals we represent are able to gain justice, pursuing a compensation claim on their behalf.

The highly publicised abuse scandal of Jimmy Saville has highlighted the issue of sexual, physical and psychological abuse of patients placed in the care of hospitals. Vulnerable victims, both adults and children, can find themselves the subject of repeated attacks of sexual abuse by individuals occupying a trusted position of care.

Instances of sexual abuse are particularly prominent in mental health units and psychiatric wards where victims are believed to be more susceptible to the grooming tactics of their abuser. It is essential victims

 

of abuse find the strength to speak out against their abuser in order to help ensure others are not subject to the traumatic ordeal they have experienced.

Here at Farleys we realise this can initially seem like a daunting prospect. Whilst we realise compensation will never reverse the trauma you have suffered, financial compensation provides victims with the funds to rebuild their lives gaining access to first class treatment and support.

If you or a loved one has suffered abuse whilst in the care of a private hospital, NHS ward, or other healthcare facility, please don’t hesitate to contact Farleys to discuss the options available to you. As specialists in this complex area of law we understand each case must be treated with the upmost sensitivity and discretion.
