Acts of Domestic Violence are devasting for the sufferer and those close to them
Acts of domestic violence, although they often go unseen by friends and neighbours, are devasting for the sufferer and those close to them.
If you, or someone you know, has suffered from domestic violence, it is important to know that help is at hand and compensation is available. And while it may not be able to undo the past, it can go a long way to helping you make the most of the future.
Anyone can experience domestic abuse regardless of age, religious beliefs, gender disability or social status. For some, there are simply no boundaries to their behaviour.
Domestic abuse is when someone close to you, often a partner or spouse, causes you physical, sexual, financial or emotional hardship. It is a misconception that for you to be categorized as being in an abusive relationship, there must be physical violence. In many cases there is no physical violence; instead, there is psychological and emotional abuse.
Domestic violence can take many forms. Other than physical violence and threats of violence, you may feel intimidated by things that are said to you, or the manner in which you are treated. You may feel controlled and prevented from spending time with friends and family. Abuse can be verbal; you may feel belittled by your partner at home or in front of others. Examples of domestic violence include:
Coming to terms with what type of abuse an individual has suffered is one of the most difficult steps a person can take. A good first step is to speak to a close friend about what you are experiencing. This can give you an outside perspective and shed light on whether the behaviour you have experienced is abusive. You can then consider pursuing a claim for compensation and, more importantly, take steps to leave the abusive environment.
At Price Slater Gawne our legal experts know that acknowledging and accepting that you are in an abusive relationship can be one of the hardest things that you will ever do.
