CHILDHOOD SEX ABUSE
Childhood sex abuse cases are tragic, and the attorneys at Brock & Gonzales, LLP recognize the sensitive nature of these cases. Our attorneys have represented victims of sexual abuse in situations where the abuse was perpetrated by a teacher, student, coach, supervisor and pastor/priest. We will work to ensure that not only the perpetrator be held responsible, but also that any employer that was negligent in hiring and supervising the perpetrator is held accountable as well.
What is recoverable in a Childhood Sex Abuse Case?
- All medical and psychiatric expenses incurred, even if health insurance paid for the treatment
- Monetary compensation for past and future mental suffering, anxiety, humiliation, and emotional distress
- Punitive damages to punish the perpetrator.
Childhood Sex Abuse Cases Require an Experienced Civil Attorney
Frequently, in sex abuse cases, the district attorney is criminally prosecuting the perpetrator. Even though the district attorney works closely with the victim, the district attorney does not represent the victim and cannot work to obtain the victim civil compensation for the harm suffered. Only a civil attorney can do that. Therefore, it is important that you hire an experienced civil attorney to ensure you are compensated for all that you have suffered.
