We appreciate that total confidentiality is hugely important to anyone who has been accused of abuse. All lawyers are bound by an extremely strict code of confidentiality and any information that you provide will remain strictly confidential. In association with your claim it will become necessary for certain authorised people to have access to the case information, e.g. independent experts and the defendant(s). However, please be assured that no information will be disclosed without your prior authority.
The abuse claims process can be very lengthy and it is very important to us that throughout this period you are caused the least possible stress. Your lawyer will provide you with up to date news on your case by phone, letter or email. If you would prefer not to receive updates, you just need to inform them at any time.
What to Expect
The lawyers will require some details about what happened and will then be able to provide some preliminary advice regarding your case. They will also be able to explain the legal process and funding arrangements. Assuming that they are able to assist with your case then they will proceed to gather further details and begin to build your case.
In many abuse cases there has often been a criminal case involved and your lawyers will be able to obtain the necessary documents from the police. Upon receiving sufficient information they will submit your statement to the other side.
It is possible that there will be a requirement to obtain expert evidence in support of the victims claim. It will be particularly necessary to obtain medical evidence which will detail the injuries that the victim may have suffered. Abuse affects each person differently and injuries can be psychological, physical or a combination of both. Your lawyer will be able to help in obtaining the necessary medical assessments and reports from the experts to defend your case.
