Connecticut Sexual Abuse & Molestation Victim Lawyers
If you or a loved one has been assaulted sexually or molested you have rights to redress what has happened to you. In Connecticut if you were molested as a child (for example, a young victim of daycare abuse) you have up until age 48 to pursue a case for your abuse. If your abuse has taken place as an adult you have two years to bring your claim from the date of the abuse. We work with experts in rape crisis centers, and psychologists and psychiatrists to promote coping and a complete picture of the effects of the assault you have suffered.
Claims We Will Prosecute On Your Behalf
We see molesters often seeking positions of trust and exploiting that position to accomplish their goal of molesting innocent people. We prosecute claims against neighbors; relatives; clergy, teachers; coaches; doctors; scout leaders and anyone else who has committed molestation. We seek evidence to determine if all the appropriate steps were taken by those who placed the molester in a position of trust and authority.
Survivors of Molestation
There are numerous groups offering support to those who have survived molestation. A common theme amongst members is the importance of the molester being held accountable in the healing process. It is important to have the courage to come forward not only for your own healing but to prevent further people from being victimized. If you have questions concerning your rights, call our Connecticut personal injury attorneys for a confidential consultation (866) 284-3578.
Victims of intentional assault are entitled to compensation for their losses both economic and non-economic meaning their medical bills and out of pocket as well as their on going physical limitations, restrictions and mental torment.
Assault is a Criminal Offense With Civil Remedies
We help clients recover financially for the results of their assault. Regrettably it does matter who assaults you if they have no assets it becomes difficult to secure means for payment of your losses. We investigate the assets of the guilty party and investigate other avenues of securing repayment of your losses through responsible third parties.
Legal Significance of an Intentional Assault
If you have been assaulted by a minor their parents may have an obligation to compensate you for your losses. In addition if your assault is adjudicated to be intentional then the judgment you recover is not dischargeable in bankruptcy such as simple negligence is. We would be happy to discuss the merits of your claim and advise you if we feel you have a case which merits prosecution. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact us directly.
