    Get justice and compensation for physical and sexual abuse at schools and educational institutions

    If you or your child has been the victim of physical or sexual assault or abuse at the hands of a school teacher or staff member you are entitled to pursue compensation.

    Pursuing compensation is not only important for recovery and long term support; it’s essential in bringing justice and awareness to the predators and perpetrators who hold positions of power in places that should be keeping children safe.

    Incidences of abuse and assault can range in their nature from molestation to rape, physical attacks, violence and other non-consensual interactions. You can claim compensation for both one-off incidences or repeat abuse.

    Often the most severe impacts and injury of sexual abuse in schools are invisible from the outside. When an abuser holds positions of power over children or young adults as a teacher, principal, lecturer, professor or staff member; victims can feel powerless.

    This ongoing abuse of power can cause severe anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, fear and distrust of authority and institutions, hopelessness and much more.

    Often victims feel if they haven’t been physically injured no one will believe them or their experiences aren’t severe enough to pursue compensation.
