Why Should I Consider A Lawsuit?
The criminal justice system rarely prosecutes clergy members who abuse children. Through civil action, though, victims have the opportunity to have their day in court and recover compensation for their damages. Some examples of common damages in sex abuse lawsuits include:
- Medical bills
- Prescription medications
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Damage to reputation
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
In addition to financial compensation, civil action often helps victims of sexual abuse achieve a sense of closure and justice. It is a way to bring a perpetrator’s actions to light after suffering so long in the darkness. Our compassionate yet strong lawyers are ready to walk beside you at every step of the way.
