At Dean Wilson LLP we are proud to have a highly experienced team of solicitors in Brighton who have dealt with some of the most serious and life changing types of human rights compensation claims. We work on a no win no fee basis.
Our areas of specialism within Human Rights Compensation Claims
We act for clients where their human rights have been breached in a wide range of circumstances including:
- Breach of Art.2 (e.g. right to life)
- Breach of Art.3 (e.g. inhuman or degrading treatment)
- Breach of Art.5 (e.g. unlawful deprivation of liberty)
We are instructed to act for vulnerable adults, children, and those who have passed away.
Human rights claims are often linked to areas of personal injury, medical negligence, court of protection and inquests. We act for clients where there is a cross over into a number of these areas, and our expertise makes us uniquely placed to provide a complete service.
Making a Human Rights Compensation Claim
All local authorities, emergency services, schools and other state bodies have obligations and duties under the Human Rights Act 1998. What duties are owed may not always be immediately obvious and claims may involve a breach of one or more of the articles under the Human Rights Act. A breach under the Human Rights Act may occur in the following situations:
- Failure to safeguard an individuals’ welfare by the local authority, for example if the person is known to be suicidal,
- Failure to adequately safeguard a vulnerable adult in supported living,
- Abuse and serious neglect within a care home or hospital,
- Inhumane detention conditions which, for example, can be in a police cell, prison or mental health hospital, or
- Where you are detained in a hospital, or a care home and the correct procedure has not been followed.
As a result, this may cause damage, injury and in some tragic cases even lead to loss of life. It is vital to obtain legal representation to understand whether you meet the criteria for a claim under the Human Rights Act 1998.
We have an excellent relationship with professionals to help clients and their families in all aspects of the case, including instructing barristers and introducing clients to charities who can provide support through the legal process. Through our empathetic and dedicated approach to our clients, we have built an excellent reputation as a leading specialist team throughout the south-east.
