What Damages Can Sexual Abuse Survivors in Las Vegas Recover?
Sexual abuse trauma is apparent in every case we handle. We will account for your trauma, which generally falls into various categories of damages. Recoverable losses in your case may include:
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering can cover trauma, which may include specific conditions like:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which the journal Trauma, Violence, & Abuse associates with sexual abuse
- Fear of social situations
- Substance abuse
- Suicidal ideations
- Difficulty sleeping
- Lost or reduced quality of life
Any unwanted psychological or emotional condition related to your abuse may qualify as pain and suffering. These conditions may warrant compensation in their own right. We will also seek compensation for the cost of treating such conditions.
Abuse-Related Health Care Expenses
You may have needed a medical examination and other services related to your abuse. We will seek compensation for the cost of that exam and other abuse-related medical care you require. If you need further treatment going forward, we will include the cost in your lawsuit.
The physical and psychological toll of sexual abuse can cause serious professional harm. Your abuse may:
- Require you to take time off from your job
- Require you to quit your job or change careers to accommodate the symptoms of your trauma
- Cost you income
- Diminish your earning power
- The cost of bonuses, benefits, and retirement contributions
- Have other negative professional effects
The resulting damages may be recoverable. If you have other losses related to abuse, we can include those damages in your legal action.
Who Is Liable for Your Damages?
Each athlete who suffers sexual abuse has a unique story, and we’ll listen intently to yours. After obtaining your account of abuse and other relevant evidence, we can identify all parties who are liable for your losses.
In athlete sexual abuse cases, liable parties may include:
- A head coach
- An assistant coach
- A trainer
- A medical staffer
- An administrator
- A teammate
Our attorneys understand how to assess liability in sexual abuse cases. The perpetrator of the abuse is likely not the only party liable for your losses. Any party who enabled or failed to stop the abuse may also be liable. Defendants in your case may also include:
- A school that employed the abuser
- A professional athletic organization that employed the abuser
- A non-professional athletic organization that employed the abuser
- Any other party with authority over, or a responsible for stopping, the abuser
It may be challenging to determine liability if you haven’t handled athlete sexual abuse cases before. The sexual abuse attorneys at Greenberg Gross have experience determining liability in cases like yours. We will work to ensure that those responsible for your abuse face the consequences.
