SEXUAL ABUSE CASES

Civil v. Criminal–Sexual abuse and molestation cases and especially those from childhood are a real and ongoing problem in today’s society.  Sometimes sexual predators are prosecuted if caught under the California Criminal Penal Code, but that is not enough for those who have been violated and who are still suffering.  The skilled, compassionate and knowledgeable attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara look for additional recourse consisting of civil damages for our victims.  If the sexual perpetrator has gained access to the victim while acting in a trusted or official capacity such as an employer, a priest or a coach, it is very certain that the employer can also be found negligent in their official capacity and held liable for damages by failing to adequately protect vulnerable members of the community

Walk the Talk—Mr. Fiumara doesn’t just say he fights hard for victims of sexual abuse, but has shown time and time again that he is willing to put his name out there to fight for the victims against a sometimes unjust and insensitive criminal justice system.  Please take a moment to review Mr. Fiumara’s Video playlist [https://www.youtube.com/user/michaelafiumaralaw] that shows Mr. Fiumara demonstrating in front of the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office with members of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) demanding justice for victims of priest sexual abuse and for the Bishop to be criminally charged. http://www.snapnetwork.org/  

Results–The highly skilled and knowledgeable team of attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara works hard to hold every perpetrator fully responsible as well as the organizations who they have worked for totally accountable for their actions.  We seek-out justice and financial compensation for our victim clients with a passion for justice! The Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara in 2007 settled one of the largest priest/abuse molestation cases in the North Bay for over $5,000,000 with the Diocese of Santa Rosa in the Father Ochoa scandal that rocked the diocese to the point that Bishop Walsh was criminally charged.

TYPES OF SEXUAL ABUSE CASES THE FIRM HANDLES

  • Sexual abuse in daycare.
  • Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America.
  • Sexual abuse in foster care.
  • Catholic dioceses, priests and other clergy abuse.
  • Sexual abuse by coaches.
  • Sexual abuse by teachers, school administrators, and janitors.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list. Oftentimes young victims are abused by those who are given temporary custody or easy access to them because of a family emergency or because of some other legitimate reason. just because the situation is temporary, if the sexual abuse occurred, it needs to be rooted out and those responsible for violating our most vulnerable citizens need to pay the price.  If you are not sure that you were sexually abused, then you might want to speak to one of our attorneys to seek medical and psychological treatment and care in case the memories have been suppressed.

LEGAL SERVICES FOR VICTIMS OF MOLESTATION, RAPE, AND ABUSE

Unfortunately, sexual abuse can cause long-term negative social and psychological effects. Sexual abuse can have an extremely devastating impact on victims’ mental health, physical health, and ultimately their quality of life.  Since the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara recognize this as being true, we are absolutely committed to having our clients receive the appropriate professional treatment so they may begin to heal.  We have a great network of psychiatrists, therapists, and other healthcare providers who will treat our victims on a lien basis only since the law firm works on a contingency fee basis.

Sexual abuse criminal proceedings do not award monetary damages to victims unless there is no insurance and no other means to collect compensation.  The district attorney’s office administers what is known as a Victims Assistance Fund, but that money is often miniscule and does not cover the full damages and/or injuries that sexual abuse victims incur.  Therefore, it is very important to seek out the violating party’s insurance to seek compensation.

In order to obtain meaningful compensation, victims are highly encouraged to pursue a civil action by having their personal injury attorney file a law suit in civil court for a personal injury claim.  Many sexual abuse, molestation and assault type cases can easily become quickly complicated by a variety of factors, roadblocks, limiting statutes of limitation and other tricky legal maneuvers—This is precisely why you should call our sexual abuse attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara today at (855) 247-3190

Some abuse cases can be complicated because the incidents occurred many years ago and perhaps beyond the statute of limitations and that is one of the crucial reasons why you should consider a very experienced team of skilled and highly knowledgeable, experienced sexual abuse attorneys to review your case to determine whether your case is viable.

Other factors that complicate sexual abuse cases is that these incidents could have occurred between family members, neighbors, coworkers, prominent figures and political leaders in the community, trusted teachers, coaches or a religious leader, pastor or priest.  In any situation, sexual abuse crimes should never be tolerated in a civilized society and should be vigorously pursued in the civil and criminal courts.

Our law firm is dedicated to ensuring that the voices of sexual abuse victims are heard and that justice is swift and complete so that closure may be achieved.  Our experienced and highly skilled legal team consisting of sexual abuse attorneys has ample resources, the nerve and the tenacity to tackle these complex sexual abuse cases to ensure success.

WE RESPECT OUR CLIENTS PRIVACY

Oftentimes victims want their cases heard in a way that will minimize the publicity and maximize their privacy.  However, if a mediated settlement or arbitration will not compensate a victim for his/her injuries, our experienced and highly skilled team of sexual abuse attorneys will fight aggressively in court to bring about a successful resolution and full compensation. WE also have been successful in having the Court records sealed for additional privacy. Confidential settlements are often preferred when the sexual abuse occurs within families.
