A compensation scheme thought to be unprecedented in British sport has been set up to provide victims of sexual abuse with financial redress.
If you are a victim of sexual abuse and sexual assaults (male, female, young or old) speaking for the first time is hard enough.
Making the decision to talk about what happened to you is often the biggest challenge a victim can face.
If you have been sexually abused and are considering seeking justice by way of bringing a compensation claim, there may be options open to you as to who to pursue.
On Friday 14 December 2018 Emmott Snell Solicitors hosted a mince pie and mulled wine morning by way of a thank you to our friends, neighbours and suppliers for all their support this year. As 14 December was Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day we took the opportunity to support this great cause and invited all our guests to wear their silliest (sorry, most festive) jumpers in support of Save the Children.
Medical and police records play an important role in any personal injury compensation claim.
They can support a person’s case in a number of ways and therefore can be of great evidential value.
If you have suffered an injury (physical or psychological) in the last three years as a result of being involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may have a personal injury compensation claim.
There are some cases where the criteria might be different. For example, a child has three years from their 18th birthday to make a claim (and will be represented in the claim by a competent adult known as a litigation friend), regardless of how old they were when they were injured.
