Contact The Frank Santini Law Firm today so we can fight to hold all liable parties accountable for their reprehensible actions.
Unfortunately, sexual abuse can occur in virtually any setting. Our firm handles a wide array of sexual abuse claims, including those involving abuse that occurred in the following scenarios.
Sexual abuse in the religious sphere is something that should be entirely unthinkable, as all religions teach us to care about one another and do our part in making the world a better place. Unfortunately, despite the trust so many people place in religious figures, we are now hearing more and more reports of abuse coming from churches, synagogues, and other religious institutions. In many cases, victims of sexual abuse do not come forward for years after the incident occurred, oftentimes because of fear. We understand this, and we are on your side. If you are a victim of religious sexual abuse, aside from criminal charges, our firm can help you pursue additional civil charges against the abuser or the institution that protected the abuser.
In today’s day and age, oftentimes, both parents hold steady jobs outside of raising their children. For this reason, many parents will leave their young children with daycare providers, babysitters, and more. These are entities that most parents trust to care for their children just as they would their own. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and if you or your child were abused by a trusted caregiver, our Hillsborough County sexual abuse lawyer is here to help attain the justice you deserve. You should also understand that caregivers are not limited to daycare providers and babysitters; coaches, scouting organizations, school employees, and more are all classified as caregivers, and incidents of sexual abuse have been reported within all of these organizations. Our firm can seek civil relief by searching for negligence that allowed this abuse to occur, such as the lack of background checks, willfully ignoring the results of background checks, a lack of cameras, and more.
Most of us trust healthcare professionals to help us in our time of need. Unfortunately, many healthcare professionals do just the opposite, and at times, this behavior goes far beyond malpractice. Sometimes, medical professionals can behave insidiously and sexually abuse their patients. For example, many healthcare professionals examine our private body parts for strictly medical purposes, however, certain devious individuals will exploit their position of power and abuse their patients. This is absolutely unacceptable, and if this has happened to you, just know that our Hillsborough County sexual abuse lawyer is here to hold the abusive party (and his or her enablers) accountable.
While we would like to think we live in a day and age where men and women don’t have to worry about sexual abuse in the workplace, this is, unfortunately, very untrue. People in superior job positions frequently prey on their subordinates and expect them not to report it out of fear of losing their jobs. There are also times when employers will learn of sexual abuse occurring within their company and will simply ignore the behavior or cover it up. This is shameful, and if this has happened to you, you should gather evidence of the abuse and report the incident to law enforcement immediately. From here, our Hillsborough County sexual abuse lawyer will work to hold your employer civilly responsible as well.
Regardless of the circumstances of your case, you can depend on us to hold the abusive individual responsible for his or her actions in pursuit of the justice you deserve. Remember, you are not alone. Though financial compensation can never fully undo the actions of an abusive individual, our Hillsborough County sexual abuse lawyer is here to fight on your behalf to hold the abusive party accountable.
