BL Claims Solicitors were approached by Ms. C who had been sexually abused by a family member, who was convicted of his crimes.

Proceedings were issued against him, but shortly after his imprisonment, he died. We were able to pursue his estate for the property that had passed into the name of his spouse, by use of the Insolvency Act. We then proceeded to obtain a settlement for our client with the deceased's executors.

We also submitted a parallel claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. By using the terms of the Scheme, we were able to secure for our client a further substantial sum in compensation, from which her civil settlement was deducted.
