Perpetrators of sex abuse should not be allowed to get away with their crimes. Contact a San Diego sex abuse attorney who can help you file an injury claim against the offender and others responsible.
While no amount of money will ever be able to take away the harm that was done to you, there is a way to move toward healing. Filing a claim against your abuser and others who might have been indirectly responsible for the abuse can allow you a sense of justice—as well as compensation.
Knowing that these individuals are being held accountable can help you move past your abuse. You will also be raising awareness about sex abuse and preventing other people from becoming victims. You’ll get qualified legal assistance with your sex abuse claim when you work with a San Diego sexual abuse lawyer at The Kindley Firm, APC.
Of course, the perpetrator of the sexual assault can be sued in civil court for damages relating to the case, but others may also be held liable.
For example, if you were sexually assaulted on the grounds of a school, you may also hold the school responsible. Why would it be the school’s fault that an abuser attacked you? Because the school has a duty to keep students safe on campus, and school officials should do everything they can to ensure your protection.
The following are some examples of organizations and institutions that could be partially liable for a victim’s sexual abuse, depending on the circumstances of the case:
You may be unsure of whether you should file a claim at all. Wouldn’t a claim just drag up all those terrible feelings? Will it give you any closure?
Holding the responsible parties to account for your abuse can provide you with a sense of closure—the sense of knowing that the abuser has been punished in civil court. Your claim could also spark new efforts to keep sexual trauma from happening to others.
