Sexual Assault and sexual abuse

Sexual assault and sexual abuse is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the victim, and can include molestation, rape, or attempted rape.  Sexual assaults and sexual abuse can unfortunately occur anywhere, and can involve abuse by a co-worker, teacher, clergy member, medical provider or family member.  Such intimate attacks on a person often and understandably result in long-term emotional and physical harm and suffering.  While sexual crimes should lead to criminal prosecution and conviction with monetary sanctions paid to the victim by the perpetrator, this is unfortunately oftentimes not the case.  A civil lawsuit filed against those accountable can be one way for a victim to receive financial compensation for the significant harm suffered. 

Responsible parties could include schools, religious institutions, corporate entities, employers and hospitals where unwanted sexual contact occurred due to insufficient background checks, unsafe conditions or other negligent acts.  A responsible party can also be the owner of a home where abuse occurred.  While homeowners policies contain exclusions for intentional criminal acts, they often provide coverage for acts of negligence.  In cases of sexual abuse that occur in a home, a homeowners insurance policy may provide coverage where, for example, the abuser is a relative of the homeowner and the homeowner negligently failed to supervise the abuser. 

Medina Seto Law Group admires the courage that it takes for sexual abuse victims to come forward.  Our lawyers understand the invasive and unsettling nature of revealing such abuse.  We work with victims to identify and prosecute those responsible, and are dedicated to helping victims receive just compensation and the resources to help them recover.
