Sexual Abuse Is Not Limited to the Catholic Church
While sexual abuse in the Catholic church is well documented, sexual abuse certainly is not limited to clergy members. Unfortunately, perpetrators of sexual abuse can include family members, coaches, teachers, therapists, camp counselors, scout leaders, doctors, and many others.
Sexual abuse can be found at volunteer organizations, day care centers, juvenile detention centers, schools, group homes, and many other places. Quite often, sexual abuse is committed by someone the victim already knows.
Your Options after Sexual Abuse
Were you sexually abused by a priest or minister?
Were you sexually abused by a teacher at school?
Were you sexually abused by a coach or camp counselor?
Were you sexually abused by a doctor, nurse, therapist, or other medical professional?
Were you sexually abused at a boarding school, group home, nursing home, or juvenile detention center?
Were you sexually abused at a day care center?
The details of who and where are irrelevant when it comes to exploring your options after sexual abuse. In every case, you have a right to justice and even compensation when someone has molested or assaulted you.
You likely know that abusers can face criminal charges for their actions. What you may not know is that sexual abuse can also form the basis for a personal injury civil lawsuit. If you have been subjected to sexual abuse, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will fight for the financial compensation you deserve.
