Emotional Abuse Compensation
Any form of abuse can be serious. Emotional abuse, while being one of the most common kinds of abuse in the UK, is still difficult to identify. This kind of abuse doesn’t leave any physical scars and, as such, can be difficult to prove without evidence. Emotional abuse isn’t just one argument, however. This kind of abuse is a pattern in the relationship and, as such, the abused may not even realise that there is anything wrong.
Emotional abuse can occur in a wide range of situations. It is commonly part of an intimate relationship but can take place in other relationships too. Some of the most common relationships to suffer from mental abuse can include:
- Employer/Manager and Employee.
- Parent and Child.
- Teacher and Student.
It is common for an emotional abuser to take advantage of any kind of authority position they might have. An emotional abuser will work to degrade and demean the victim.

We will help you to get the compensation that you are entitled to. If you need professional legal advice, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team today.
