If you have suffered school abuse from a teacher or staff member
If you are a survivor of teacher sexual abuse or abuse from a school staff member whilst attending school, even if a long time ago, you should report it to the police.
It is also important to get in contact with the available help and support services who can offer free counselling and other advice on all sexual abuse cases. See below for a list of recommended support services.
How we can help
If you were sexually abused whilst a pupil at school, contact us for free initial advice. The school abuse could have happened at a state, private or public school. You might be able to claim compensation for the physical and psychological harm you suffered.
You may be able to bring a claim against the person who abused you or against the local authority in the case of a state school, or the owners of the private or public school. Many schools are insured and so the claim may be handled on their behalf by the insurers. This will depend very much on the circumstances of your case.
Our team of specialist lawyers offer survivors ongoing support throughout their case when dealing with abuse against teachers and other staff members.
Client, sexual abuse at school survivor:
Thank you for all your hard work in this case. As you said at the beginning, there wasn’t much hope of a settlement from Jersey, and I felt that this was the case too knowing Jersey as I do.
I can now look forward to getting some treatment for my PTSD and try to move on in life, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without your help.
I cannot thank you enough.
