Sexual Abuse Can Take Many Forms
Sadly, sexual abuse often occurs to those most vulnerable, and at the hands of people they trust most, including:
- Clergy and priest sexual abuse
- Sexual abuse in schools involving teachers, administrators or even coaches
- Employer-initiated sexual abuse
- Sexual abuse by health care providers and in nursing homes
- Sexual assault/abuse within universities and colleges
- Sexual abuse in Boy Scouts of America
- Sexual abuse in youth sports
Although nothing can reverse the injustices you have suffered, working with the right attorney can provide you with much needed compensation and a measure of justice against the person who committed these terrible tragedies.
Do Not Delay, The Statute Of Limitations Is Running
The statute of limitations in Texas for victims of sexual abuse is two years. However, if the abused victim was a minor at the time the abuse occurred, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until he or she turns 18.
It is critical to contact a lawyer right away to get your case filed. Even if you believe the statute of limitations has passed in your case, there may be exceptions and other options that could allow you to bring a claim.
