What is Abuse?
Abuse can take many forms, with the distressing nature of the experiences being particularly difficult to talk about.
From sexual abuse to physical, emotional or financial abuse , coming forward can be extremely difficult and take a considerable amount of courage, so we’re here to listen and support you in every way we can.
There is now more willingness to engage in discourse surrounding abuse allegations as the public mindset has shifted.
It’s important to remember that these harmful acts can happen to anyone; from children and teenagers right through to adults – male and female.
Common Abuse Claim Types
Making an Abuse Claim
Our highly-trained team of abuse solicitors understand the difficulties you may have discussing the topic and appreciate why you may be fearful of making a claim. We strive to treat every single one of our clients with the care, respect and compassion they deserve, putting your needs first every step of the way.
Our abuse claims team understand that complete trust and confidence between ourselves and those we represent is one of the most important aspects of the support we can provide. They also have considerable experience and knowledge of the emotional and psychological impact that abuse and assault can have on those who have suffered, so we’ll ensure you feel reassured throughout the claims process.
Changes in the law have also made bringing abuse claims more straightforward, so if you’re a survivor of abuse experienced at any stage in life, you may be eligible to make an abuse compensation claim.
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.
