Liability and Accountability in Your Sexual Abuse Case
You may know to assign financial liability to the perpetrator of abuse in your case. However, our Fresno public school sexual abuse lawyer knows there could be multiple liable parties in your case.
On your behalf, we take on big institutions and organizations and their insurers. This can include the following:
- Older students
- School staff
- School volunteers
At Greenberg Gross, we do not stop fighting for you until we hold every liable party accountable for their action or lack of action. Leave it to us — we will identify and investigate all liable parties and deal with each applicable insurance company on your behalf.
Compensation for Survivors of Public School Sexual Abuse
Assessing your recoverable damages can be difficult on your own since it can be easier than you think to overlook or omit valid expenses and losses. Compensation we recover for you can include:
- Medical expenses for any physical injuries or illnesses that resulted from the sexual abuse
- Mental health care costs for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and any other abuse-related psychological trauma
- Past, current, and future pain and suffering caused by the abuse you endured
You could recover additional forms of compensation. To ensure your valuation is accurate, we consult financial and recovery experts.
We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for the abuse you endured. We also know that appropriate compensation can ensure you have access to every form of intervention that supports your optimal recovery. When we handle your case, we never stop fighting for the best possible outcome of your case.
Time Limits on Your Fresno Case
2020 legislation extended the statute of limitations for public school sexual abuse survivors. According to Assembly Bill 218, you generally have 22 years from your 18th birthday, not the date of the abuse, to file your lawsuit. That means you can seek compensation up until the date of your 40th birthday.
Filing your potential lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires is a key part of your case. It can also be a confusing one. When our team provides legal guidance and support, we ensure the filing deadline is accurately interpreted and applied.
The sooner you put our law firm to work on your case, the more time we have to investigate your case. We also have sufficient time to remove the costly risks of non-compliance.
