Abuse in a sporting association or youth group

If you have been sexually abused whilst attending a sporting association or undertaking a sporting activity, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for any resulting physical injury or mental anguish. Additionally, you may claim for any financial losses directly arising too.

Recent revelations have shown that sexual assault by trainers and coaches may be widespread, affecting all areas of sport. 

We appreciate this abuse of trust and confidence can never be expunged by the payment of damages, but compensation can help you move forward and obtain some degree of assistance and closure.

We can help you claim the compensation you deserve. 

mne_boxAlthough you may have the opportunity, and the option to bring a claim against your abuser, you may well find it easier to claim against their employer.  They will most likely have insurance in place, and therefore the funds to pay any settlement agreed or compensation ordered.  This may not be case in claims brought against an individual alone.

An employer is vicariously liable for the negligent and deliberate acts of its employees.  Basically this means that they will be held responsible, and ordered to pay compensation for any breach of trust shown by any coach, trainer or other employee who abuses persons placed under their care and charge. 

If you feel that you have been the victim of abuse then please get in touch with us so we can help you claim the compensation you deserve. 

In addition to claiming compensation for your physical and mental injuries, we will seek to recover any financial losses that may have arisen as a result of the abuse.  It may be that your working life has become erratic as a result of the trauma leading to years of wasted or lost income.  Additionally, you may need specialist treatment that is not always available on the NHS. Again we would look to include this in your claim.
