Abuse Claims Farleys Solicitors LLP

Abuse in the Military

Abuse in the Military

Suffering physical or sexual abuse can cause long term psychological issues, especially where the offence is committed by a colleague or person in a position of trust.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse or assault whilst a member of the armed forces (British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force) Farleys Solicitors can support you through this difficult period, securing you the valuable resources need to move forward with your life.

Our highly skilled solicitors realise the suffering caused by instances of abuse never truly goes away, but pursing a claim often helps in providing victims with a much needed sense of closure over their past ordeals. For a free confidential chat with a member of our dedicated abuse claims teams please don’t hesitate to call 0330 134 6430, alternatively please complete an online enquiry form.

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.
