In the summer of 2021, lawyers acting for the Ministry of Justice notified McKeag & Co and a number of other firms of solicitors, who were acting on behalf of approximately 2000 former inmates of Medomsley detention centre, that the agreed tariff compensation scheme would have a cut-off date of 31st of December 2021. Any victims who came forward after that date would not be accepted on the scheme and their claims would be defended vigorously.

We are are taking on cases for anyone who experienced sexual, physical and mental abuse whilst detained in HMP Kirklevington Detention Centre between 1960’s and 1990’s.

No Win, No Fee

With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.

McKeag & Co have been established on Tyneside for over 100 years and during this time have been successful in obtaining millions of pounds compensation for people who have suffered abuse.
