Child Abuse

Corries Solicitors team specialises in child abuse claims. Our team represent children, as well as adults who have been traumatised by events of abuse in childhood. These often occurred years ago and remained long buried.

Our team take action against individual abusers and their employers. We also pursue foster parents, operators of children’s homes and schools, social services departments which placed children in care. We chase those who failed to protect children being abused at home, religious organisations or charitable foundations.

If you have been the victim of sexual, physical or emotional abuse in childhood please call in complete confidence to a member of our team. We will work closely with you in complete confidentiality and respect at all times.


We appreciate the sensitive nature of child abuse claims. Our team are committed to pursuing cases to the best possible outcome, without causing any additional psychological trauma to those affected. As always, our clients’ interests come first. This means we will work with you from the outset to understand the details of your abuse, while making sure we do not add to the trauma you have already suffered.


Our commitment is to support you as our client and to achieve justice – whether you find that sense of closure through financial compensation, through an apology or by holding the organisation who failed to protect you to account.

There are few subjects as difficult to discuss as child abuse, and with good reason. The tragic and traumatic ordeals that some children are forced to undergo are often terrible. Some are mentally tortured, others sexually and physically so, and no victim wants to remember.

The problem with child abuse compensation claims is that many victims do not want to go through the ordeal of a protracted court case. This is understandable. It can be a daunting prospect. There is much help to be had from professionals and experts in the field that can help bring about help for past trauma.


Child abuse compensation claims are becoming more prevalent. As victims grow up they gather the strength to challenge their memories and confront the problem. With the help of experts this can be achieved, and the prospect of compensation can go some way toward helping them.

It is never pleasant to recall incidents of abuse during childhood. Those who have been subjected to abuse are entitled to claim in the eyes of the law. There is no suggestion that compensation will go any way towards erasing the memories, but it can help with getting by in everyday life.

Being able to make a child abuse compensation claim means that there is something in the way of hope for victims. We are seeing progress in the legal world to recognise this awful legacy.
