Sexual Assault Cases
A sexual assault can have devastating implications that last for years after the abuse has happened. Large organizations will often attempt to cover up the incident to avoid taking responsibility for the acts of a predatory individual. Our Dallas injury attorneys have extensive experience representing victims and families harmed by institutional negligence and malicious conduct, including cases of sexual assault and abuse.
At the Turley Law Firm, our lawyers are dedicated to Integrity, Experience, and Compassion. Please call (214) 691-4025 to schedule a private discussion about your case. We help clients who have suffered sexual abuse from organizations in Texas, throughout the United States, and in other countries.
Experienced Representation in Sexual Assault Cases
In 1992, our firm took legal action against a Dallas diocese of the Catholic Church on behalf of an abuse victim. Five years later, John Doe v. Diocese of Dallas became a landmark decision in childhood sexual assault litigation, with the judgment in favor of the plaintiff becoming the largest verdict in the country in a sexual assault case. This trial helped lead to a revolution in the handling of institutional sexual abuse.
We continue to expose incidents of sexual assault in organizations while providing victims the compassionate support they need through every step of the legal process. We have pursued abuse cases against institutions including:
- Churches and other religious groups
- Children’s camps
- Private schools
- Sports and other youth activity leagues
- Childcare facilities
Tragically, sexual abuse of children often doesn’t come to light until after the victim has become an adult. It’s highly likely that a predator will target other youths within that time. By engaging the services of dedicated, experienced attorneys who are sensitive to your needs, our firm will file the case and pursue compensation and justice on your behalf no matter what length of time has elapsed. We work hard to put a stop to sexual assault in all areas.
We also represent adults who are victims of sexual assault. These incidents include nursing home abuse and premises liability claims. The scenarios may include insufficient security such as:
- Missing or broken door locks
- Loose window latches
- Unlocked exterior doors
- Poor lighting in hallways, parking lots, and other areas
A violent intruder can take advantage of safety failures like these to enter an apartment complex, commercial building, hotel or resort, or other property and seriously hurt the people inside. If you or someone you love was victimized because of a property owner’s negligence or dangerous premises, our attorneys can help.
Please call the Turley Law Firm at (214) 691-4025 today to speak with experienced, compassionate attorneys who will fight for the justice and damages you deserve. We provide dedicated representation for victims of sexual assault and abuse in locations throughout the United States and internationally.
