Parents attending their local Church would have been shocked and appalled if it was even suggested to them that their Church Leader was sexually abusing their children when their backs were turned but sadly, child abuse claims at Parish Churches have been made on countless occasions.
Some members of the Clergy breached the trust which parents showed them in the cruellest of ways. Some of the Abusers will now be in their 70s and 80s, retired and living in different countries but you, the victim, has to live on with the sexual abuse which you were subjected to as a child.
Even if the member of the Clergy who abused you has not yet been formally charged, you can start a child abuse compensation claim.
Child Abuse by the Clergy
Unfortunately, today’s media is full of examples where members of the clergy in the Catholic Church and Church of England have had abuse allegations made against them. Instances have even arisen where convicted sex offenders have been ordained by the Church. Sadly, there are far too many examples where the people in power have breached the trust which has been given to them in the cruellest way possible over many, many years.
100% of our child abuse claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis which means that you do not have to worry about any financial risk at all as if your abuse compensation claim is unsuccessful it will not cost you anything.
It seems that in most of these historical abuse cases, the abuse claims have not been investigated properly either by the Church, Social Services or the Police and no formal charges have been made. It has reached the point where Bishops and Churches are being accused of actually covering up the abuse that victims have had at the hands of members of their own clergy.
Expertise and Understanding from Carter & Carter Solicitors
In years gone by, some Catholic Schools and Churches did not report abuse claims once they were reported or uncovered which allowed the abuse to continue for significant periods of time.
