Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse can cause physical injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety. If the sexual abuse was by a teacher, a neighbor, a family member, friend or anyone else we are available to speak with you. An employer, school or other organization may be responsible if they knew, or should have known, that the abuse was taking place. Victims may receive compensation for physical injury, emotional distress, medical bills and lost earnings. Our lawyers have experience representing clients who have been sexually violated.
