Experienced Litigation for Victims Nationwide
The role of religious leaders is to provide moral guidance. However, many of these leaders are making headlines for being involved with countless acts of sexual abuse against innocent victims. Even after uncovering poor behavior, certain religious organizations do nothing to change their policies. If you or a loved one has suffered sexual abuse or molestation by a clergy member, you are entitled to compensation for mental anguish, medical bills, and other damages.
Sexual Abuse among Religious Groups
The Catholic Church has been rocked by numerous claims of sexual misconduct from priests and other leaders. More than 6,000 priests have been
blamed for heinous actions and have paid over $3 million in settlements. Each day, new stories and cases are brought forward.
Other religious denominations have also been accused of negligent practices against children. Certain religious groups form communities that are havens for sexual misconduct. Many of these cases are due to the fact that volunteers are not screened properly. Half of all sexual molestation cases involve volunteers who work with children.
Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawsuits
No matter the religion, no sexual abuse is acceptable. It is essential to handle these cases in a public manner so that other children are not harmed. If you have been molested or suspect sexual misconduct from a clergyman, it is vital to file a report and seek the assistance of a child molestation attorney.
Clergy child molester cases are popping up across the country, especially in the Catholic Church. Back in 2003, the Archdiocese of Boston paid an $85 million settlement to compensate over 500 victims. This was just the tip of the iceberg. There is no shame in holding guilty parties responsible for abhorrent behavior. The Doan Law Firm is ready to build a solid case so that you receive fair compensation.
