Sexual abuse is invariably traumatic for the victim. While compensation won't undo the torment, it can help those affected feel a sense of justice and help them to move on with their lives.
Gotelee has an outstanding reputation for successfully and sensitively representing victims of sexual, physical and child abuse.
We are partnered with Suffolk charity Survivors in Transition, which helps those affected by abuse by empowering them to take control of their lives.
Gotelee is also a proud member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, boasting a team of experts, including doctors, counsellors, psychiatrists and specialist barristers.
If you have been the victim of abuse, either as a child or a vulnerable adult, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries or for the emotional and psychological damage you have suffered. If you are the parent of a child who has suffered abuse we can also advise you.
A claim can be made against the abuser in a civil claim for personal injury compensation. If he or she does not have any assets, money or property, our lawyers can advise you on an alternative action by making a claim for compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority for victims of violent crime.
Our solicitors have a wealth of experience of pursuing compensation cases quickly and effectively. We understand the difficulties you may have in discussing what has happened, and we appreciate the fears and anxieties you may have about making a claim.
Our team know how traumatic cases of this nature can be and will do all we can to ensure you feel safe throughout the process.

We offer a fully insurance protected No-Win No-Fee conditional fee agreement where appropriate and will explain best options available for funding your claim.
We will investigate your case quickly and help you concerning your entitlement to compensation and assistance. If possible we will obtain an interim payment of damages for you.
