The Catholic Church is seen as a safe place for children and adults to learn and be surrounded by a community. Unfortunately, the Catholic Church has been across the news in recent years for disturbing behavior and hiding of assault. If you or a loved one has suffered from priest abuse or assault by a member of the clergy or church, call us today.

Yes, these are two different types of cases that you will want to discuss with your lawyer. A civil lawsuit will be against the perpetrator and will seek financial compensation and healing for the victim. Criminal litigation requires a high burden of proof and seeks fines, imprisonment, and sex offender registration. A criminal lawsuit is focused on punishing the person who committed the crime.
There is also the potential for a third-party claim that can be filed against the organization, employer, or business. By engaging with an experienced law firm, you can obtain more information around the specifics of your case and what legal options you have.
In a civil sexual abuse lawsuit, our attorneys seek compensation for the emotional trauma you have experienced. This can include medical treatment for physical injuries, psychiatric care, and other effects from the trauma. While we understand that financial compensation can never remove the pain you have suffered, it can help with the expenses incurred as well as feeling a sense of justice.
Our attorneys understand the stress and emotional pain surrounding your experience. We are committed to the well-being of victims and fight to protect future people from experiencing a similar devastating crime. Our compassionate team wants to make sure our clients receive the compensation they deserve, taking the pressure off of their shoulders during the healing process.
