Each and every year, innocent children are victimized sexually by adults. The perpetrators can include teachers, neighbors, coaches, community volunteers, and even relatives. The impact of sexual molestation can be multifaceted and profound. Protecting a child's interests in the aftermath of being victimized by an adult is best undertaken through tenacious representation by an experienced Los Angeles child molestation victim lawyer.
Coach Molestation Attorney
A recurring situation in which innocent children become the victims of molestation by adults is via the coach and participant connection. In many cases, this type of scenario plays out in a school setting. Other times, an allegation of molestation arises out of an extracurricular sporting or recreational activity in which a coach takes advantage of a child.
A coach molestation lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at (424) 334-0000 has the background and track record necessary to provide the type of representation that is vital to ensure justice in your case. This includes obtaining an appropriate settlement or a judgment in a case that ends up going to court.
Summer Camp Molestation Attorney
Summer camp is meant to be a brilliant experience for a young person. Summer camp is meant to be a time of enjoyment, camaraderie with others, and a chance to mature and gain a bit more of a sense of independence. While this proves to be the experience for most young people, sadly it is not always the case.
Every year, children in and around Los Angeles are sexually victimized while at summer camp. As a result, their lives are changed forever. A summer camp molestation lawyer from The Doan Law Firm can work with parents, and a victimized young person, to ensure that justice is served in the aftermath of sexual molestation.
Boy Scouts Molestation Attorney
The Boy Scouts of America is a venerable organization. The Boy Scouts represents the largest youth organization in the United States, with about 4 million members and about half that many serving as adult volunteers.
Despite the promise of the organization, the storied history of the Boy Scouts was well tarnished because of numerous incidents of boys in the program being sexually molested by adult volunteers. Each year, boys in the program are victimized by adults who should be protectors and guides for them.
A Boy Scout molestation lawyer from our firm is available to meet with families with a boy victimized while participating in the Boy Scouts. A consultation can quickly be arranged, at no charge, by calling (424) 334-0000.
When to Bring a Child Molestation Claim or Lawsuit
California does have a statute of limitations in regard to sexual molestation lawsuits. The statute of limitations establishes a timeframe in which a lawsuit must be filed in order to obtain compensation and justice for a child victimized sexually by an adult.
In California, a sexual molestation lawsuit can be brought any time up until eight years after the victim reaches majority. In other words, the basic timeframe is up until a victim turns 26. There are exceptions to this rule, which can be explained by a child molestation victim attorney from The Doan Law Firm.
A preliminary decision in the aftermath of a child's victimization is whether to pursue a claim, and possible a lawsuit, while the victim is still a minor. The alternative is to wait until the victim becomes an adult, permitting that individual to pursue the case on his or her.
Compensation in a California Child Molestation Case
Compensation awarded in a California child molestation case depends upon the specific facts and circumstances of a case.
With that said, financial recovery oftentimes is sought for losses, injuries, and damages that include:
- medical bills, including mental health treatment
- emotional distress
- ongoing or more permanent injury, like PTSD
