Pursuing a Military Abuse Claim
In the past few years the number of sexual assault allegations in the military has increased significantly, with more than 200 allegations of rape by a colleague being made over the past three years. Both men and women can find themselves victims in an institution that has managed to remain relatively closed and somewhat out of touch with modern society’s values.
Here at Farleys we understand the extreme difficulties our clients face in coming forward and speaking openly about the abuse they have suffered. This is especially the case for military personnel; it often takes victims years to finally speak out about what has happened as they struggle to come to terms with their past.
It is essential for victims to realise that regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred they may still be eligible to pursue a compensation claim and finally attain justice. As regionally recognised specialists our committed team possess the skills and experience required to navigate complex legislation securing the necessary compensation whilst causing minimal distress to clients.
