Types of Cases Our St. Louis, MO Lawyers Represent

Our injury law firm represents a wide range of sexual abuse cases and can help you recover compensation. Unfortunately, sexual crimes can happen in even the safest places. The perpetrator often takes positions of authority. For too long survivors have been silenced, but you have a powerful voice and can help make positive changes. Some of the many types of cases we represent include:

Clergy or Catholic Church Sexual Abuse

The Catholic Church has been in the headlines the last few years for reports of sexually abused or assaulted children. Children and adults look to religious organizations and the clergy for safety, guidance, and trust. The abuse can happen within the church, school, or other religious meetings.

Sexual Assault At A Nursing Home Facility

In Missouri, it’s illegal for the owner or employee of a nursing facility or Alzheimer’s special care unit or program to have sexual intercourse or sexual misconduct with a resident in one of these facilities, units, or programs. This law also prohibits people who work for or with a certified program operated, funded, licensed, or certified by the Department of Health from having sexual intercourse or sexual contact with a vulnerable person in one of these programs. Sexual assault and even statutory rape can be committed by employees, other residents, or even someone visiting the facility.

Private School Sex Assault

Schools are also safe places children spend much of their time and are seen as safe places. Unfortunately, those who commit sexual violence take positions as teachers, faculty, or other employees of private and public schools to have closer access to children.

If you or someone you love has been a victim of assault or rape, it is important to come forward as soon as you can. By speaking out against your trauma, you can help others who are afraid to come forward. Your voice can also help protect future victims from abusers and from experiencing the same crime.

FAQs Answered By Kansas City Sexual Assault Attorneys

Our attorneys answer some of the most common questions we receive. If you have a question or want to learn more about your legal options, call our team today and speak with an experienced lawyer. We can help you figure out whether you are able to file a civil claim against the person or party responsible for your injuries.

What Can I Sue For In a Sexual Assault Case?

In a sexual assault or abuse lawsuit, you have legal options that pertain to the physical and emotional effects of your assault. While every case is different, you may be able to collect compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Cost of counseling
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

Can A Third-Party Be Held Responsible For My Sex Assault?

Yes, in some cases like a third-party lawsuit, it may be an option for a sexual assault survivor. If the incident occurred at a business, school, religious organization, or other locations. Learn more by speaking directly to a lawyer about the options for your specific case.

What Is The Difference Between a Civil Lawsuit and a Criminal Sexual Abuse Lawsuit?

A civil lawsuit primarily focuses on helping the victim. Lawyers fight to obtain compensation and justice for the victims.

A criminal lawsuit focuses on the perpetrator and prosecution in a criminal court. This typically involves fines and prison sentences.

How Does Sexual Abuse Affect A Victim of Sexual Abuse?

The pain and suffering from sex assault can affect people in different ways, including emotional trauma, physical pain, and long-term behavioral issues. A few of the long term effects can include:

  • Localized pain
  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Self-harm
  • Substance addiction
  • Eating disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • Discipline problems
  • and more
As lawyers, we understand that trauma does not go away just by filing a lawsuit. By coming forward, you can help other victims too afraid to step forward.

What is the Sex Abuse Statute of Limitations in Missouri?

Once a child abuse victim reaches their 21st birthday, they have up to 10 years to file a claim against the perpetrator (i.e., age 31), but only 5 years to file against other responsible parties (i.e., age 26). It is important to come forward as soon as you can to ensure all the evidence can be collected.

Adult sexual abuse cases typically have a shorter time to file, and victims have up to 5 years to file a personal injury claim.

What Do I Do After Rape Or Sexual Assault?

After your trauma, it is important to call the police as soon as possible. You should also go to the hospital where a rape kit may be administered. You will also give the police a full account of the incident and everything you can remember. After speaking to the police, please do not hesitate to contact a defense attorney to review your legal options in a case evaluation.
