Have you been the victim of physical or sexual abuse at the hands of a religious institution?
These kinds of experiences can cause serious trauma. Often victims don’t report the behaviour because they are fearful and confused. Some are threatened or made to feel like the abuse is their fault.
Many victims suffer abuse for years as a result of grooming and don’t realise they are able to get help and report their perpetrator until much later in life. Some victims don’t lodge their claims until almost 30 years after the abuse, and it’s important to know that historic abuse can still be pursued for compensation.
If you’ve experienced assault or abuse in a religious institution, you can claim compensation to help you heal, work through your trauma and receive damages for your psychological, physical and financial injury.
What constitutes assault or abuse?
Victims of sexual assault can suffer from severe depression, anxiety, suffer from flashbacks and PTSD, have suicidal thoughts and can have trouble forming healthy relationships and holding a job.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, or any other injury as a result of abuse it’s important you receive the right compensation to help you manage your trauma and access support services.
