Vincent Shannon practises in the area of abuse law and has represented many victims in cases which have been resolved without going to court. This gives closure to the victims and a chance to start again.
We have acted for victims who were abused in Foster Homes, others who have been abused while in Foster Care, Children’s Homes, Industrial Schools, Special Needs schools and Primary schools.
We have acted in claims for abuse for people who were sexually assaulted whilst an in-patient in a Private Psychiatric Hospital.
We have acted for a client with learning difficulties who was sexually abused and suffered neglect while in Residential Care.
Some of our clients are people who suffered abuse by members of the Clergy, and others who were subjected to abuse in Care Homes and Industrial Schools throughout Ireland.
We understand the difficulties you may have in discussing the abuse, and we appreciate the fears and anxieties you may have about making a claim. We handle all types of Abuse Compensation Cases, including Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Soccer and Sports Abuse, Child Abuse, the abuse of an Elderly Person or Abuse of a Disabled Person, and abuse of people in Nursing Homes.
Medical evidence will be needed to confirm the nature and extent of your injuries, whether those injuries are physical or psychological. Usually the claim will be for psychiatric or psychological damage caused to you as a result of the abuse. We will arrange for you to see a qualified expert experienced in conducting these assessments and preparing these reports in abuse cases.
