Sexual Abuse

Too many victims of sexual abuse and assault find that they cannot get justice from the criminal justice system. These can be difficult cases for prosecutors to win, and defense lawyers fight hard to protect their clients. Even when offenders are convicted, the victims may be left with financial losses that they cannot cover. Remember, in a criminal trial, you are not the victim — the court considers the crime to have been perpetrated against the state. That is why filing a case in civil court may be beneficial for you.

As attorneys who are committed to protecting the rights of injury victims, we aggressively pursue justice and compensation in civil court for victims of sexual abuse. Whether you are the parent of a child who has been abused or you were a victim as a child, we may be able to help you. We may also represent adults who are victims of assault in situations involving negligent security, workplace assaults, nursing home sex abuse, or assaults by doctors and other professionals.

Sexual abuse cases can be challenging. However, until we hear your story, we won't know how we can help. Please contact Olive|Bearb Law Group, PLLC, for a confidential consultation with one of our attorneys. We will treat you with respect and care throughout the process.
