Child abuse is a subject that too many people have been willing to brush under the carpet for too long. At the time of writing, in July 2014, it seems as though the last few years have seen most of the stars of stage and screen of 1960s, 1970s and 1980s put under investigation for alleged child abuse. On top of that, and at long last, it looks as though a much-rumoured child abuse ring of Westminster politicians in the 1970s and 1980s will at last be investigated.
All the revelations that have come to light over the last few years have resulted in more victims of abuse coming forward to the police or charities such as Childline, which incidentally was founded by Accident Advice Helpline patron Esther Rantzen. If you or anybody you know were abused as a child, this will be your first port of call. Even if the abuse took place many years ago, you should still get in touch with the authorities. You only have to look at the recent abuse convictions of several elderly celebrities to see that justice can still be done many years after the event.
Securing a conviction and seeing justice be done will most likely be your first priority, but once this has been achieved, you might like to look into the possibility of seeking a personal injury compensation pay-out from the person who abused you. To do so, you’re going to need the help of a top law firm.
Regardless of whether you were abused at a boarding school, at a care home or anywhere else for that matter, you should get in touch with the police today, no matter how long ago it was or how unlikely it is that you might secure a conviction. When it comes to talking personal injury action with the aid of a decent law firm, it will be likely that you might be able to seek compensation for any injury you’ve suffered as a result of the abuse you were exposed to, be this physical or psychological.
