Other Sexual Molestation Cases
Our experienced California trial lawyers will bring civil actions against anyone in a position of trust who has violated the rights and dignity of our clients, including school officials, day care or camp operators, youth group supervisors, government employees, cruise ship personnel or medical professionals.
Civil actions related to sexual molestation can take many forms. Some of the claims that may be pursued in such cases include general negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and deceit, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, negligent supervision or retention, and negligent hiring. One important issue we examine in all of our sexual abuse cases is the conduct of the perpetrator’s employer. Negligence on the part of an employer, such as a school district, camp or commercial enterprise, can greatly increase the number of liability theories a plaintiff can pursue. Of course, such negligence also tends to increase the plaintiff’s available damages.
It is important to know that lawsuits based on unlawful sexual behavior are subject to various statutes of limitation. These important laws limit the amount of time a person has to claim and he or she must be strictly complied with. If the applicable deadline is missed, the plaintiff’s claim, and his or her right to recovery, will be lost forever.
