"this authoritative book is a boon to PI lawyers and / or anyone in the position to advise victims of child abuse ... highly recommended to practitioners who represent survivors of abuse, notably thoses who seek fair and just compensation for what has happened to them ... scholarly and thorough treatment of this specialist subject written with clarity and humanity ... extensively updated and revised"
Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers
Since the publication of Child Abuse Compensation Claims in 2001, the law in this area is now far more developed, particularly in the areas of limitation and liability. However, these cases continue to come before the civil courts and they remain a constant focus for the media. All of the authors are leading practitioners in their field, and they have worked incredibly hard to produce a work that is now the definitive guide to this challenging area of the law. In the Foreword to the 2001 publication, Mr Justice Jackson (as he then was) called it a ‘work of scholarship’. The 2011 version is nothing less and I recommend it to all practitioners, who represent survivors of abuse in their quest for fair and just compensation.
