Sexual Assaults by Healthcare professionals

Sexual Assaults by Healthcare professionals

When you or your child are ill and need to be treated by a GP or in hospital, you are putting your trust in skilled professionals to protect your or your child’s health and welfare. Unfortunately, a small minority of people who have a duty of care towards us breach this trust when we are at our most vulnerable. This can have a devastating effect on your life or that of your child, causing long-lasting physical and emotional damage that can be very difficult to recover from.

If you or a loved one have been a victim of physical, emotional or sexual abuse by a doctor, consultant, therapist, GP, nurse or other health worker, you could be entitled to compensation. Making a compensation claim for the assault and abuse can help you obtain justice, as well as funding access to the long-term specialist health resources to help you or your loved one recover from the effects of the abuse.

We understand how difficult these issues can be to deal with and how reluctant victims often are to speak out about the abuse they experience. Our solicitors are highly experienced in supporting victims of child abuse and can sensitively and compassionately work with you to ensure your abuser is brought to justice and that you get the compensation you need to rebuild your life.

We offer no win, no fee agreements, meaning there is no upfront cost to start a claim and no financial risk to you if your claim is not successful. We also offer a free initial consultation where we will discuss your claim with you and give you all the information you need to decide how to move forward, including an indication of how much your claim may be worth.

To discuss your case or to make an appointment, please contact us on 0333 123 9099, email or complete the simple form on the right to request a callback.
