Nursing Home Sexual Abuse

nursing home sexual abuse

Nursing home residents are some of our society’s most vulnerable people, so the crime of sexually exploiting them is truly heinous. These residents are often physically weak or even incapacitated, and thus unable to prevent the abuse. One recent case even involved a woman, who was in an incapacitated state since 1992, giving birth. This crime is not only despicable, but it can also lead to civil law consequences.

You or your loved one may be entitled to a financial recovery if it can be proven that they were sexually abused at a nursing home. Nursing home sexual abuse is usually, but not always carried out by nursing home staff members. These horrific acts can also be carried out by nursing home residents and visitors. Nursing homes can still be held responsible for sexual abuse committed by their residents and visitors, as nursing homes are responsible for providing their residents a safe environment.

If you or a loved one has been sexually abused while being cared for at a nursing care facility, contact us today by calling 1-800-718-4658, use the live chat feature or complete the contact form on this page. We have the experience, compassion and know-how to fight for the victims of this especially heinous crime and obtain them the largest recovery possible. We offer a 100% free and confidential consultation.

Sexual Abuse In Sports Teams

sexual abuse in sports teams

Studies show that between 2 and 8 percent of athletes are victims of sexual abuse within a sporting context. It seems that elite young athletes are more likely to experience sexual abuse than their lower-level peers. A 2008 study showed that 98% of these cases are perpetrated by coaches, teachers or instructors.

AYSO Soccer Sexual Abuse

AYSO soccer sexual abuse

A former AYSO coast in Lancaster, California, Renoir Vincent Valenti, was sentenced to 130 years in prison after he was found guilty of molesting 15 boys over a 17 year time period. At least five civil lawsuits have already been filed against Valenti.

Youth soccer should be an environment where our children have fun and learn valuable life lessons about teamwork, competition, etc. It should not be an environment where our childrens’ lives are forever scarred by sexual predators.

Call us today at 1-800-718-4658 if you or a loved one was a victim of AYSO soccer sexual abuse. We know what a difficult, sensitive situation this can be for you and your child, and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that you and your child obtain justice.

Anonymous filing is available for sexual abuse victims.

Gymnastics Sexual Abuse

Over 368 people have been sexually abused “by gym owners, coaches, and staff working for gymnastics programs across the country” over the past two decades. Larry Nassar has been sentenced to a combined 140 to 360 years in prison after he was accused of sexual assault by over 265 women. A nine month investigation found that “predatory coaches were allowed to move from gym to gym, undetected by a lax system of oversight, or dangerously passed on by USA Gymnastics-certified gyms.” Nassar has since been named in hundreds of lawsuits.

Call us today if you or a loved one was a victim of sexual abuse while participating in gymnastics. Your phone call will be strictly confidential, and we understand the sensitive nature of these cases.

Private School Sexual Abuse

private school sexual abuse

You’ve sent your child to a private school. This may have cost you a ton of money. You’ve sent your child to a private school because you expect your child to receive the best possible education there. Instead, you find out your child has been sexually abused there. This nightmare scenario is all too plausible in today’s world.

Our educators are granted with the monumentally important task of developing our youth into the successful workers and leaders of tomorrow. It is an especially horrific crime when our educators shirk this responsibility and instead abuse their position by abusing our children. Nadrich & Cohen, LLP feels nothing but the strongest contempt for these predators and will fight aggressively to help these predators’ victims seek justice.

Call us today if you or a loved one was a victim of sexual abuse at a private school. We have the experience, willpower and knowledge to obtain justice and the largest possible monetary recoveries for victims of this despicable crime.

Public School Sexual Abuse

Public school employees are the backbone of our educational system. Not only are they entrusted with the lives, safety and development of our children, but they’re paid with taxpayer money. This makes it especially contemptible when these employees sexually abuse our children. A 2000 survey found that around 290,000 students had been sexually abused by public school employees from 1991 to 2000, and a 2004 study found that almost 10 percent of United States public school students had been targeted with sexual attention by employees of public schools.

Call us today if you or a loved one was sexually abused by an employee of a public school. Let us put our many decades of legal experience to work for you to obtain you or your loved one the justice they deserve.

Boys & Girls Clubs Sexual Abuse

bandgclub

A recent six month investigation found over 250 victims, in 30 states, who claim to have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of “employees, volunteers and other members of Boys & Girls Clubs of America affiliates.” Children as young as six years old were raped and assaulted, and some of the victims were molested for years.

The parents of America trust Boys & Girls Clubs to essentially help raise their children after school when the parents are busy at work. It is terribly loathsome for those entrusted with this huge responsibility to abuse it by abusing children.

Call us today at 1-800-718-4658 if you or a loved one was sexually abused by someone affiliated with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We will fight to the end to obtain justice for victims. We do not charge a fee for our services unless a recovery is made.

Workplace Sexual Abuse

workplace sex abuse

Workplace sexual abuse generally occurs when a superior such as an owner, supervisor, manager or boss engages in unauthorized workplace sexual abuse behavior because they feel they have the power to do so. We have also handled cases when a coworker was engaged in such sexual abuse. We have extraordinarily strong, bitter feelings about workplace sexual harassment. We will aggressively protect the legal rights of all victims of sexual abuse in the workplace.

Remember, we advance all court costs. We only take cases on a contingency fee basis which means you are never charged any money at all. We are only paid if we win. Please call us for a confidential conversation at 1 800 718 4658.

Many workplace sexual abuse cases occur when employees are forced to have sexual relations with their supervisors in order to keep their jobs. This is intolerable and we will not allow it. Repeated verbal harassment of a sexual nature is also workplace sexual abuse. We also handle cases where there is the trading of sex in exchange for better employment, job benefits or a better job.

We handle hostile work environment cases where there is verbal or physical sexual harassment occurring. A case is when the harassment is not voluntary. It is when the client is forced to engage in the conduct. We do not take cases where the conduct is consensual.

Non-consensual sexual touching, or non-consensual touching in a sexual manner, is in violation of the law and wrongful. We handle actual physical touching cases.

By hiring an established, experienced, resourceful sexual abuse law firm, you are doing what is best for you. We will handle the case with minimal involvement into your life. We will take very little of your time. We will advance all costs and are only paid a legal fee when and if we obtain a recovery.

Wrongful Termination

We handle termination of employment cases which are due to some form of objective sexual harassment. These are called wrongful termination lawsuits. You were wrongfully terminated if the termination was motivated by the refusal to comply with some sort of sexual act or favor, or because you could not tolerate the sexual abuse any longer.

What rights do sexual abuse victims have?

Sexual abuse victims have the right to obtain justice. They have the right to a monetary recovery for what they have gone through. We know our clients have suffered long term damage and we will get everything they deserve in our battle with the companies and corporations which foster such abuse.
