Compassionate San Jose Lawyers
At our law firm, you will receive the confidentiality and support you need while pursuing your sexual abuse case. The abusers are often people with authority or power over vulnerable people — someone who works with children, a stepparent, a caretaker in a group home or nursing home, a doctor or therapist. We will stand up for your rights and pursue financial justice for your injuries.
- If you are a victim of child sexual abuse, you can file a lawsuit at any time within eight years of your 18th birthday. It is best to file as soon as possible so that memories and evidence are fresh.
- If a loved one has suffered sexual abuse in a nursing home, we want to know about it. A vulnerable person deserves to live with dignity. If you see signs of sex abuse, take immediate steps to get legal help to stop the abuse.
- Mentally ill and developmentally challenged people are vulnerable and may not fully understand what is happening to them. If you suspect sexual abuse, talk to an attorney about the victim's rights.
- In sex abuse cases, our attorneys name the abuser as the defendant as well as others who allowed the abuse. In a clergy abuse case, for example, we would name the priest, minister or rabbi, as well as the church, diocese and officials. In a nursing home sex abuse case, we would sue the abuser as well as the nursing home. In a school case, our lawsuit would name the school, school authorities and the abuser.
