About Kevin Donoghue, solicitor and specialist in child abuse compensation claims
Kevin Donoghue is the Solicitor Director and founder of Donoghue Solicitors. He represents claimants throughout England and Wales in child abuse cases. These include claims against institutions including the police, schools, and others.
Mr Donoghue’s clients includes victims of historic child sexual abuse, including former pupils of a fee-paying school who suffered sexual abuse in the 1980s, as well as more recent matters.
Where appropriate, Kevin represents claimants with special needs and/or learning difficulties. These include a Down’s syndrome client with a mental age of 7-years-old who was abused by a carer.
Connection Between Child Abuse and Actions Against the Police
What makes Mr Donoghue different to most lawyers is that he has an extensive background in civil actions against the police. These claims often overlap with child abuse cases because it is not uncommon for children to be victims of police abuse, including the abuse of authority for sexual gain.
Kevin has successfully represented such victims against the police, including a claim on behalf of a child sexually assaulted by a Merseyside Police officer.
