Victims of child sexual and related physical and emotional abuse can claim substantial personal injury compensation. These are sensitive claims where it is especially important to consider how the conduct of the claim will impact the victim. Reliving the trauma can have a negative impact and needs to be kept to the minimum necessary so the claim does as much as the law can to restore the victim and give them justice.
We have experienced abuse lawyers that are here to help. If you would prefer to have a particular person or type of lawyer you feel more comfortable discussing your case with, we can arrange an initial consultation that will best suit your needs.
The statutory time limits on child abuse claims have been removed as a result of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. However, it is still possible for a claim to be effectively barred if the delay since the abuse has been so great that a fair trial can no longer be held. It is still best not to delay in seeking legal advice about your rights and to put the defendant on notice about your claim to limit their ability to complain about delay later.
