Do I Have to go to Court?
We provide free, confidential advice to the victims of sexual and physical abuse whether the abuse occurred as a child or adult and understand just how difficult it is to find the strength to talk about sexual or physical abuse
100% of our abuse compensation 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.
If you have been the victim of sexual or physical abuse, we recommend that you report the abuse to the Police (Telephone 101) if you have not done so already. The Police have specially trained officers who will support you and offer advice whilst any criminal proceedings go ahead.
Whether you need to give evidence at a Criminal Trial partly depends on whether the Abuser admits their guilt and whether the CPS believe asking you to give evidence will help their case. You will be consulted about this well in advance to discuss any queries you have and remember that there are numerous ways to give evidence; by video link, behind a screen, in a written statement, etc.
If the criminal court proceedings result in a conviction, this can add weight to your abuse compensation claim but a criminal conviction is not essential to have a successful sexual and physical abuse claim.
