Donnelly Neary and Donnelly Solicitors (Victims of Abuse Solicitor Newry) can help victims of child abuse pursue claims for compensation where the abuse has taken place in schools, care homes, the church or similar institutions.
DND Law liaise with police from across the UK and Ireland to assist in securing successful criminal convictions which also often result in victims recovering compensation through civil claims.
We understand the delicate nature of claims brought by victims of physical or sexual abuse, and how important it is to be able to talk about your case in confidence to people who are experienced in dealing with such matters sensitively and discretely, with the reassurance that your anonymity will be protected at all times.
In addition to the recovery of compensation we can also assist in securing counselling and support, together with expert medical help as appropriate. We have links with some of the best known charitable organisations in the country for the protection of children and vulnerable adults, and as with all our legal services our commitment to “no win no fee” funding means claimants are free to concentrate on pursuing their cases without the worry of expensive legal fees.
