Since the law change in Scotland in 2017, survivors of historic abuse are now able to pursue a civil financial claim from those responsible.
The dedicated Survivors Team at Thompsons is committed to achieving redress for those affected and are working closely with many victims of abuse from a variety of different settings and circumstances.
While Thompsons' abuse claims solicitors in Scotland focus primarily on providing help and support to clients, we also believe it is our ethical duty to fight for justice, recognition and change on behalf of all survivors, and to ensure those who were responsible for abuse are held to account.
Members of the Survivors Team regularly appear in the press and on television and radio in order to highlight the issue of historic abuse and to comment on the cases that are now being brought to light.
