Holding Wrongdoers Accountable
Our law firm will bring a legal claim against every party that shares responsibility for your abuse. In many cases, abusers are allowed to continue these egregious acts due to the actions, or inactions of those in authority. When institutions knew or should have known about an abuser’s history and failed to take appropriate action to remove a sex abuser, these institutions are equally liable for the abuse.
Every school, church or institution must have appropriate procedures in place to screen employees. When these institutions fail to follow their procedures, or if they do not have procedures in place, these institutions are liable. We are familiar with the unique issues surrounding civil claims of sexual abuse and will work to help you recover maximum compensation for your damages. These damages can include the cost of past and future therapy, as well as damages for the emotional and physical damage resulting from the abuse.
Do I need a lawyer for a sexual assault charge?
Yes, given the serious nature of sexual assault charges. If you don’t have a lawyer, the Court will often require you to get legal representation.
The best course is to instruct a specialist criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. This is the best way to ensure that your case is thoroughly prepared. Your lawyer can also address important issues such as full disclosure of documents and information by the prosecution.
A conviction for a sexual assault charge carries a stigma that will remain for a very long time. Your obligations and the duration of the supervision depend on the type of sexual assault conviction.
