Dealing With The Nightmare Of Sexual Abuse

Nothing can prepare you for the shock and horror of learning that a loved one has been sexually abused. Such abuse creates deep-seated wounds that last a lifetime. Victims in sexual harassment claims can have a lifetime of recovery.

Sadly, these nightmarish situations happen all too often in facilities and institutions that are supposed to be trustworthy such as:

  • Schools
  • After-school programs
  • Counseling centers
  • Addiction treatment centers
  • Psychiatric facilities
  • Residential care facilities
  • Nursing homes

The victims are often already vulnerable. They may be children, patients with mental illnesses, nursing home residents, people struggling with addiction, those with disabilities or others who are unable to stand up for themselves and resist unwanted sexual advances from their harasser. The abuser may have been in a position of authority and trust, in the home, outside of the home or in a work environment. There may have been few or no warning signs that the abuser would violate that trust the worst way, causing them to become a victim of sexual harassment.

Pursuing Accountability And Justice

What kind of sexual harassment could possibly warrant legal assistance in pursuing sexual harassment claims? If a co-worker becomes the harasser and commits or is part of:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Hostile work environment
  • Requesting sexual favors
  • Quid pro quo
  • Sex discrimination

Criminal charges are not the only way to hold the wrongdoers accountable. You may also have a claim against the facility, institution or organization that employed the abuser through employment law.

  • For example, perhaps the facility was negligent in:
  • Failing to properly screen prospective employees
  • Failing to properly handle past reports of abuse
  • Failing to properly address concerns about the perpetrator’s behavior
  • Failing to adequately supervise employees
