If you suffered abuse during childhood, or if you are a parent or carer working on behalf of a child who has been abused, it is only natural that you want what happened to be acknowledged and for justice to be done.

Francis Hanna & Company Solicitors has solicitors dedicated to helping victims of child abuse pursue claims for compensation where the abuse has taken place in schools, care homes, the church or similar institutions.

We understand the delicate nature of claims brought by victims of physical or sexual abuse, and how important it is to be able to talk about your case in confidence to people who are experienced in dealing with such matters sensitively and discretely, with the reassurance that your anonymity will be protected at all times.

In addition to the recovery of compensation we can also assist in securing counselling and support, together with expert medical help as appropriate.

Some people think that because the abuse happened so long ago it is too late now to do anything about it. Regardless of the time since the abuse happened, it is worth contacting Francis Hanna & Company as we may be able to bring a child abuse claim against the person who abused you, or the organisation that employed your abuser.

We will never rush you or put you under any pressure to pursue a claim. If you or someone you know has been the victim of historical child abuse, please telephone us for further information or for a free, no obligation discussion on 028 9024 3901 or contact us online using the contact us form.
