Sexual Assault and Abuse Cases
Sexual assault and abuse cases are extraordinarily sensitive cases that cry out for civil justice to be done. The victim often sustains deep emotional injury that lingers long after the physical trauma. In addition to the actual perpetrators of these crimes, claims can be brought against those responsible for the safety of the victim such as schools, hospitals, medical facilities or day care centers. Claims can also be brought against those who negligently enabled the crime in some way such as liquor servers, bar and nightclub operators, the perpetrator’s employer, the owner of the premises where the incident occurred, or against religious organizations and clergy who protect known sexual predators.
