Child Sexual Abuse Attorney in Virginia: Types of Cases We Represent

Sex abuse can cause pain and suffering and is, unfortunately, more common than many people think. For many types of cases, the perpetrator and facility may be held liable. The abuse can happen in places we trust most, including but not limited to:

Virginia Nursing Home Sexual Abuse

The elderly are a vulnerable population, moving into a nursing home or assisted living facility when they can no longer live on their own. Placing a loved one in one of these institutions is already an emotional ordeal, discovering nursing home sex abuse after your loved one has been living there can be even worse. This sexual abuse is not limited to just facility staff members, but visitors, vendors, family members, and other residents can be a perpetrator. If your loved one was a victim of this horrific abuse, you have legal options.

University and College Campus Sexual Assault

Students of all ages move away from home to attend university. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 1 in every 5 women on a college campus has reported sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. The National Institute of Justice reports that a college with 10,000 students is likely to experience approximately 350 rapes per year. Our Title IX sex assault lawyers fight for victims in educational institutions, learn more about your case by contacting our team today.

Clergy Sexual Abuse

Another common type of sexual assault and abuse our lawyers represent in civil lawsuits is in clergy sexual abuse cases. These types of cases have made countless headlines across the United States over the last few years. Priests, bishops, deacons, ministers, pastors are just a few of the positions holding power and the trust of those attending a church, synagogue, or other religious meeting places. This power and trust can make sex abuse difficult to speak out against. This sexual assault is not limited to just the Catholic Church. Sexual assaults can happen across all religious organizations including Jehovah's Witness, Southern Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists, and the Mormon community. We believe you and want to help you navigate the justice system, getting you the compensation you deserve, and help your healing process.

One in five women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives. RAINN has reported that an American is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds, with 321,500 victims aged 12 or older every year.

In 2016, RAINN reported that the rate of sexual assault and rape was 1.2 per 1,000 people, a decrease of 63% from 4.3 assaults per 1,000 in 1993. They also report that the sexual abuse is across the general public, inmates, children, and members of the military. If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, by speaking out about your experience, pain, and suffering, you can be helping countless other victims who have not found their voice and help deter abuse from happening in the future.
