During childhood and old age, people put their trust in others to care for them. Sadly sometimes this trust is abused. If you suffered abuse when you were a child or you believe that an elderly relative has suffered abuse then it’s natural to want to seek justice.
It can take a long time to feel ready to talk about the abuse you have suffered and reporting abuse takes courage. That’s why when you contact Simpson Millar to talk about your experiences, we’re ready to listen. We have a team of experienced solicitors who specialise in abuse cases, including several of the UK’s leading abuse solicitors. And whilst their knowledge and expertise is second-to-none, they are also compassionate, understanding and easy to talk to. Our solicitors understand how difficult it is for someone to talk about the abuse they have suffered. We do everything we can to make it as stress free as possible. We can give you the help and support you need to achieve the justice and compensation that you deserve.
The head of our child abuse department, which was set up in 1994, is the founder and president of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers (ACAL). ACAL is a claimant based organisation of compensation abuse lawyers dedicated to raising the standards of advice through training and support.
Talking to us is the important first step in seeking justice. Many people feel immense relief after making that first contact. In the first instance you won’t need to tell us all the details of what happened but we’ll guide you with some simple questions so that we can assess your case and plan the next steps.
If you would like to talk about your experiences, or those of a relative, you can call us for a free and confidential initial conversation with a dedicated abuse solicitor. Together we’ll identify if you have a case and can answer any questions you may have about the process.
