The fact that child abuse claims continue to fill the courts in Ireland is a sad reflection on our society. Research has shown that people who were abused as children are more likely to become child abusers themselves once they reach adulthood, and through treatment, therapy and care we can break this circle once and for all.
Every responsible citizen who has been the victim of sexual, physical or emotional abuse as a child owes it to themselves to seek compensation.
Making Child Abuse Claims for Compensation
Irrespective of whether you are a child or now an adult, you may still be entitled to make a child abuse claim for compensation, no matter how long ago the offences against you happened. There is a long list of potential defendants in a child abuse claim for compensation, and these can include:-
- Individual abusers
- Foster parents
- Operators of a children´s home
- Religious organisations
- Charitable organisations
- Social Services Departments
Not only are the individual perpetrators responsible for the child abuse you may have suffered, but also the institutions that failed to protect you as a child and placed you in situations of danger. Because of the many different scenarios involved in making child abuse claims for compensation, it is always in your best interests to speak with a specialised child abuse claims solicitor when considering a child abuse claim for compensation.

As you will see from our opening paragraph, our objective is to offer assistance to anybody who feels they need somebody to talk with regarding their situation before committing to making child abuse claims for compensation.

As well as offering advice and providing information for you, we will advise you about the procedures that are necessary when making child abuse claims for compensation. It is better that you are fully prepared before proceeding with a claim, but our service puts you under no obligation to do so.
We usually conclude our conversations with a summary of what we have discussed and a list of options tailor-made to your particular circumstances. You may wish to take a few days to reflect on our suggestions, and are welcome to call us back with any further questions that you think of.
