Sexual Abuse Compensationexpand content

Our senior lawyers will take the time to understand your personal situation, ensuring we can properly advise you on your options and potential entitlements. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may have the following options available to you to claim compensation.   

  • Common law civil claim 

  • National Redress Scheme application  

  • Internal Redress Scheme application  

  • Criminal Injuries Compensation  

The National Redress Scheme (NRS) was created to provide support to institutional child sex abuse survivors. Under the scheme, you may be entitled to compensation of up to $150,000, a payment for counselling services of up to $5,000 and/or an apology from the institution.  

 Some, but not all, institutions have their own separate redress schemes to compensate survivors who suffered historical child sexual abuse while under their care. 

Supporting Survivors

Preparing Your Case 

 If you decide to engage our services, we will start to prepare your case. Our dedicated legal team will open investigations by requesting documentation from a range of parties. Once we have collected and reviewed the necessary evidence, we will be able to provide you with preliminary advice.  

In the event you ask us to proceed with your claim, we will arrange for you to be examined by an independent medical expert to help support your case. When all of the independent medical evidence has been obtained, our team will arrange a conference to discuss whether a settlement can be negotiated. If a settlement cannot be reached, you may be able to progress an action in court where we can continue to represent you. 

Our Legal Fees  

During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly explain our legal fee structure. In many cases, there are no upfront costs to be paid and we will endeavour to negotiate a settlement that will cover most of your out-of-pocket expenses and legal fees.
