Claims for survivors of abuse

Claims for survivors of abuse

For years, solicitors at Price Slater Gawne Slater have represented hundreds of sexual, physical or mental abuse survivors across the UK.

We have won compensation for our clients, for the physical and psychological injuries the abuse has caused, for the support and treatment they need and most importantly for them to be able to invest in their future.

Whether the abuse came from a family member or a friend, a teacher, support worker, group leader, carer, nurse or doctor or sports coach, in childhood or adulthood – we can help. We can represent you regardless of where you are in England or Wales.

Specialised & Experienced Solicitors

We understand that it is not easy to talk about abuse. No one, except you, can truly know what you went through. These cases can be traumatic. The years of experience we have help us to understand you and your case from start to finish. We are here to support you. We understand the anxiety you will have from time to time about the process. We also understand the hopes you might have for how the case will resolve. Throughout your case we will treat everything you tell us with the utmost sensitivity and confidentiality. We are here to support you. You will be treated with respect in our care at all times.

Our abuse claims lawyers are experts in this area of law. We know how to prepare and present the evidence the courts need. We know which experts to use and how the litigation processes work. We know how to achieve the results you deserve.

Victoria Price leads the abuse claims team. She has represented hundreds of clients, in the civil courts and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. She has strong links with charities and voluntary organisations that work in this field, supporting abuse survivors. Victoria will act for you and oversee your claim with the support and assistance from the rest of the team.


Confidentiality will be crucial to you and to every client. There will be times when we will need to share some information about your case with medical experts or for example an “expert witness” such as an expert in social care and the defendants. If this happens we will advise you fully about this beforehand so that you know exactly where your information goes to.
If the needs arises we can also protect your identity.

Next Steps

Contacting us may seem daunting at first. You may not want to have to go through everything that has happened to you, again. You may have already had to go through criminal proceedings, or through an internal enquiry or a public enquiry.

We will need some information when you first contact us but you need not go into all the detail at that point. After your first call we will be able to tell you whether we can help you or not and we will be able to tell you about the legal process we will follow, how long the case will take and how the case will be funded.

There are time limits on bringing a claim, so do not delay in contacting us.
