Victims of sexual abuse have two avenues in which to seek justice: criminal and civil. The civil avenue can help financially compensate the victim for the pain and suffering caused by the sexual abuse. Often, victims of sexual abuse have physical and emotional scars that will last a lifetime.
Typical defendants in sex abuse cases are religious leaders, day care workers, childcare providers, physicians, counselors, teachers, or any other person who commits an act of sexual abuse. As with most other personal injury cases, the compensation sought to help make the victim of sexual abuse whole, comes from the insurer of the defendant or the institution that employed the defendant. Our firm knows how to handle these insurance companies.
