Abuse Claims: A Specialist Compensation Service

Solicitor, Lee Dawkins, explains that New Deal’s sister site provides a specialist service to victims of abuse.


Claiming injury compensation can be stressful and difficult at the best of times, but when the compensation claim is made in respect of sexual abuse the position can become particularly challenging for the claimant.

Over the years a number of members of our personal injury team have developed an expertise in abuse claims and we now represent a large number of abuse victims around the country.

Abuse claims is a specialist area involving legal principles that are quite different to those found in ‘mainstream’ personal injury claims such as accidents at work or highway tripping claims. It is for this reason we have established a specialist website – – which is aimed at making the process of claiming less intimidating for victims of sexual abuse.

Our abuse team can deal with claims of all types including claims against local authorities, schools and the church.

Because we are experts in the area we can offer advice on the issue of limitation. This can be a particularly complex area and it is vital that specialist advice is taken from solicitors who are totally familiar with the up to date legal principles and rulings.

We are also very well placed to advise on the evidence that will be required to prove the claim and have access to the best experts in the country.

In addition to bringing civil law claims for compensation through the county courts we can pursue Criminal Injuries Compensation Claims (CICA Claims) and are able to deal with these cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.
