how to make a compensation claim August 5, 2016 by Peter Kelso

Many child abuse survivors are hesitant to engage in legal proceedings. It is often seen as a costly process tied up in red tape. We understand that. It’s for this reason that we follow a process that is as straightforward, fair and stress-free as possible.

Here are the 10 steps to justice:

  1. Complete a Claimant Information Form or phone Kelso Lawyers.
  2. Claim assessed for eligibility for compensation.
  3. Have a personal conversation with founder and principal, Peter Kelso.
  4. Receive a letter of introduction and our Conditional Costs Agreement. These documents need to be signed and returned before we commence proceedings.
  5. Ensure that you have a professional and personal support network in place.
  6. Case assigned to one of Kelso Lawyers’ experienced solicitors to prepare your case.
  7. Make a statement.
  8. Attend mediation where compensation payment will be determined and a verbal and written apology made.
  9. Notify Government agencies of impending compensation payment.
  10. Receive compensation and an apology.
