If you have, or suspect you have, been the victim of sexual assault, our expert lawyers can help you
If you have, or suspect you have, been the victim of sexual assault, you can receive discreet and wholly confidential advice from our expert team of lawyers, all highly experienced in dealing with sexual assault claims.
Sexual, or indecent, assault is an act of physical, psychological and emotional violation, in the form of a sexual act and which is inflicted without consent. It may also involves forcing or coercing/manipulating someone to witness or participate in any sexual acts, suffered during childhood or adulthood.
An increasingly common form of sexual assault involves spiking someone’s drink with alcohol or drugs, or injecting them with an unknown substance. This can be with the intention of carrying out a sexual assault, and the victim therefore has no recollection of it and can’t be sure if it happened. In this and other such cases, an experienced sexual assault solicitors can help you in reporting the offence to the relevant authorities and in obtaining the forensic evidence required to prove that a sexual assault has taken place.

With Price Slater Gawne, you can be assured of a discreet, empathetic and genuinely human approach to your claim.
