Anyone who suffered abuse as a child while under the care of a government organisation can claim compensation for the injury caused.
And, as a result of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that ran from 2013 to 2017, legislation was changed to make it easier for survivors to claim damages.
We understand though, that whilst it has been made easier, it can still be extremely daunting and difficult for survivors to come forward, which is why having a government institution abuse lawyer can be so beneficial – to help ensure justice is served, to ensure you have the best chance of a successful outcome and to fight on your behalf to help make the process easier for you.

Compensation For Government Institution Abuse
Thousands of people came forward during the Royal Commission to tell their stories but it is estimated that there are still over half of victims who are yet to come forward.
With the changes that came out of the Royal Commission to make it easier for victims to claim, one was that time limits to lodge a claim were removed.
It can take time to build up the courage to come forward – many victims were put off by the treatment of those who tried to come forward in the past and were unsuccessful.
But that has changed, and when you’re ready we are here to help.
Another significant change was that if you had accepted a settlement that you had been pressured into accepting by an institution, you can now have your claim reassessed.
