Sexual abuse is a serious crime that has recently garnered a lot of attention. The public outcry against sexual abuse is well-warranted, and the negative attention that the Catholic Church has received has raised awareness of sexual abuse situations. However, sexual abuse still affects many children and teens every year.
California has some great resources to help victims of sexual abuse, but a civil sexual abuse lawsuit can help provide the financial recovery to pay for psychological treatment, medical care and any other damages associated with sexual abuse. If your child has been the victim of San Diego sexual abuse in the greater San Diego area, give us a call.
With the large numbers of people coming forward about sexual abuse at the hands of the Catholic Church, it’s not just children that need help with their sexual abuse cases. In some cases, adults who have been victims of sexual abuse at a younger age never report their abuse, and then consider coming forward years later.
If you’re an adult who has been a victim of sexual abuse, it may not be too late to come forward and seek restitution. California statute is specific about how long an individual has to come forward in a sexual abuse case, but depending on your circumstances, you may still be eligible to file a case. Contact us as soon as possible to discuss your circumstances and determine whether you can pursue a San Diego sexual abuse civil lawsuit.
