Fighting Back For The Survivors Of Sexual Abuse
The institutions we were taught to trust above all else have failed us. The worst among us have preyed on young children and teens before engaging in elaborate cover-ups to hide the truth. The “best” at those institutions looked the other way and pretended that nothing untoward was going on.
Enough is enough.
As as survivor of sexual abuse you’ve been brave and strong for far too long. It’s time to make those responsible pay for what you have been through at the hands of your abuser. They knew better and they need to pay. Holding them accountable through our civil justice system is the best way to set a strong example and make sure this does not continue to happen to the next generation.
At Roberts & Harris PC, we don’t blink when it’s time to take on the toughest opponents our society has to offer. We will not bow down to the rich and powerful and we will not accept the mistaken idea that people – including clergy – are above the law.
You should not be left to bear the emotional and psychological burden alone after surviving sexual abuse or sexual assault. We will fight aggressively to obtain a settlement or jury award that provides you with financial compensation for your counseling costs, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages you have suffered as a result of your trauma. We are not afraid to bring claims against a wide variety of perpetrators and the institutions that protect them, including:
- The Catholic church
- Teachers and school districts
- Businesses and corporations
- Athletic clubs and organizations
- Apartment complexes
Whether you have suffered abuse at the hands of a priest at church, a teacher at school, supervisor at work, or even a stranger in your apartment building, you deserve to be compensated for what you have been through. Just as important, the people and institutions who allowed it to happen need to be held accountable for their negligence and callousness.
