We Take Difficult Cases … HEAD ON

The insurance company has a legal team to save them money after YOU have an accident. They would rather pay their lawyers than pay you fairly for your injury claim.

And quite frankly, that pisses us off.

San Diego Sexual Abuse Lawyer

It is no secret that sexual abuse is a widespread issue. 

The abuse may cause an initial shock, grief, sadness, and in rare instances, anxiety or depressive disorder. Counseling can lessen the burden and aid in the healing process for survivors. However, sometimes therapy isn’t enough. Victims may encounter severe consequences of sexual abuse that seep into other areas of their life. Their reputation and general enjoyment of life are impacted. If this describes you, contact a San Diego sexual abuse lawyer to bring your civil action against the perpetrator.

Sexual assault survivors frequently encounter social, legal, and personal barriers that keep them from reporting the abuse and getting the support they need. Let DP Injury Attorneys in San Diego be your legal representation.

What is Sexual Abuse?

According to Psychology Today, sexual abuse is “any sexual activity that occurs without consent. Also referred to as sexual assault or sexual violence, it includes unwanted sexual touching, forced oral sex, and rape, among other sexual acts. No matter which act occurs, it’s not the survivor’s fault that they were assaulted—and help is available to begin healing from such abuse.”

A San Diego Sexual Abuse Lawyer​​ Protecting the Most Vulnerable

At their most sinister, perpetrators of sexual abuse inflict abuse on children. They may place themself in the position to gain your child’s trust and the institution that employed them. A teacher, doctor, clergyman, or sports coach is not exempt from such activity. These professions can sometimes attract sexual abusers. 

Regardless of the job requirements, encounters or interactions like unwelcome physical contact between a child and an adult—if the child is being used for the accused’s sexual arousal—can amount to child sexual abuse.

We understand the damage cannot be undone. The purpose of hiring a San Diego sexual abuse lawyer to bring legal action against a person who has sexually harassed, abused, or molested your child is to protect the child from further abuse and obtain compensation to aid their rehabilitation. 

Sexual abuse is something that may live with the child well into their adult years. At the very least, allow one of our sexual abuse lawyers to help you recover the cost of ongoing therapy.

Children must be protected by organizations like schools, daycare centers, youth groups, and churches. They may be held accountable for misbehavior if they fail in this duty of care or act carelessly and abuse a child. A sexual abuse lawyer at DP Injury Attorneys will be your child’s voice when they cannot find theirs.

Speak to a San Diego Sexual Abuse Lawyer While You Still Have Time

We understand it is no easy task to come to us for help. Sexual assault victims and sexual abuse survivors may need years to reconcile with their assaults. 

Unfortunately, there is a ticking clock at play.

In California, victims of sexual abuse who were adults at the time the abuse occurred have three years from the date they discover—or reasonably should have discovered—that the act caused an injury or illness—rather than the earlier of 10 years from the date of the last act—to file a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator. 

As of January 1, 2019, this statute of limitations became operative. Before this date, the traditional California statute of limitations, which is three years from the date of the assault, may be applied to an assault. Now, those who were sexually assaulted as children have five years from when the abuse was discovered to initiate a civil action or until they turn 40. Contact an experienced San Diego sexual abuse lawyer.

Please note that the above pertains to bringing a civil claim. Criminal charges may be filed at any time, regardless of how long ago the alleged offenses occurred, against the offenders of some of the most severe sexual crimes.

We hope you find the strength to speak to a San Diego sexual abuse lawyer at DP Injury Attorneys to finally receive the compensation you need to continue the healing process.

What a San Diego Sexual Abuse Lawyer Can Do for You

Victims of sexual abuse are compensated in civil lawsuits to achieve justice. In these circumstances, compensation is sought for financial losses, including medical expenses and missed earnings. A victim of sexual abuse can receive compensation for the psychological and bodily suffering that sexual assault causes. 

It might be intimidating to file a lawsuit, especially for something as terrible as sexual assault. However, survivors must bring suit as soon as possible to preserve evidence, obtain swift justice, and satisfy deadlines. We will treat your matter with the commitment, compassion, and sensitivity it deserves and keep the statute of limitations in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my car accident case take?

It is hard to predict this length of time at the beginning of your case. Complex cases and those that are worth more may take longer because the insurance company will take their time before writing a large check.

What can I do if my claim is denied?

While the insurance company may get to deny claims, their word is not the law. Only the jury’s word counts for the law, and you can file a lawsuit against the responsible driver.

How much will a car accident lawyer cost me?

You only need to pay a car accident lawyer if you get a settlement check or a jury award. You never have to write an upfront check to a lawyer, and you do not pay if you do not win.
