Are you a refugee who has been unlawfully detained?
Were you treated inhumanely while in detention?
Have you been unlawfully imprisoned?
Have you been falsely arrested or detained?
If you have been unlawfully detained, falsely arrested or treated inhumanely while in detention, then you may be entitled to claim compensation. Compensation can cover any loss you have incurred, and any physical and psychological suffering. Importantly, this applies to refugees who have been held unlawfully in immigration detention.
The Rights of Refugees
The team at Wyatts Compensation Lawyers understand that people seeking asylum from persecution have endured extreme circumstances, and for many reasons, are highly vulnerable. We believe that refugees should be treated with dignity, compassion and respect, and should be afforded basic human rights and protections.
At Wyatts, we offer a personalised, caring, and attentive service, so that you feel supported in making a claim for compensation. We also have a team from a range of backgrounds, and we can assign you a lawyer who can speak to you in your preferred language.
Inhumane Treatment While in Detention
People held in detention retain a right to be treated humanely, and with respect and dignity. If you have suffered inhumane treatment, abuse or neglect while in detention, you may have a right to claim compensation for any loss, and suffering you experienced, including physical and psychological abuse.
Wrongful Detention and False Imprisonment
You may be entitled to claim compensation for any financial loss or medical costs associated with being falsely imprisoned or detained. False imprisonment occurs when a person (e.g. police officer, security guard, border force officer, defense personnel) intentionally confines or restrains another without a right to do so. Wrongful imprisonment can also occur in a situation where a convicted person is imprisoned for longer that deemed by their sentence.
