Can I Sue High Desert Juvenile Detention Center for Sexual Abuse?

Yes, you can sue if you were sexually abused by an adult while you were detained at High Desert Juvenile Detention Center. It doesn’t matter if you were not forcibly raped; sexual conduct between minors and adults is child sexual abuse under California law.

Juvenile detention centers are meant to rehabilitate troubled youths by providing them with guidance and structure. On the one hand, disciplinary measures are necessary to accomplish this goal, but physical and emotional abuse is against the law. Abuse includes sexual harassment and assault, which are very common at juvenile halls and camps throughout California. Sadly, these places attract guards, nurses, counselors, and other staff members that take these jobs with the intent of harming children.

What’s worse is that people in charge of youth detention facilities are often to blame for why these incidents continue to happen day after day, year after year. As child sexual assault lawyers, we have heard countless stories of minors who were ignored or threatened when they reported incidents of sexual abuse. Or, they were told that an investigation would take place, when in reality, the authorities are never contacted. In some cases, the employee should never have been hired in the first place, but inadequate hiring practices allowed a sexual predator to slip through the cracks.

The degree of negligence by juvenile hall officials is shocking, and it is our mission to bring justice to abuse victims and their loved ones. For more information on suing High Desert Juvenile Detention Center for sexual misconduct, contact the offices of DTLA Law Group.

Average Settlement Value for Child Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

A juvenile hall sexual abuse lawsuit typically has a value of $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 if the victim is subjected to sexual assault. If you were sexually harassed at High Desert Juvenile Detention Center, the amount of compensation may be around $400,000 to $750,000. But these amounts do not apply in every situation, as there are many factors that must be examined before we can come up with a High Desert Juvenile Detention Center sexual abuse case value.

Along with the injuries resulting from these incidents, acts of negligence by facility and county officials is another critical issue. If the harm you suffered was caused by gross (excessive) negligence by these entities, a High Desert Juvenile Detention Center sexual assault settlement can exceed $10,000,000.

How Long Does it Take to Settle aHigh Desert Juvenile Detention Center Sex Abuse Lawsuit?

It takes 1 to 3 years to settle a lawsuit for sexual abuse against a youth detention center. However, there is some flexibility in this area, and we can sometimes reach a settlement in 6 months or less. But suing a juvenile hall or any other government entity is a very complicated process and resolving one of these lawsuits usually takes 1 or more years. We are able to settle more than 95% of these cases out of court, so there’s a very slim chance that your case will go to trial. If that becomes necessary, it may be 3 or more years before you receive payment for sexual abuse at High Desert Juvenile Detention Center.

What is the Deadline to Sue for being Sexually Abused at High Desert Juvenile Detention Center?

If you were younger than 18 years old at the time of the abuse, you have until your 40th birthday to sue High Desert Juvenile Detention Center for emotional distress, medical expenses, and other forms of compensation. Another standard you can use is the discovery rule, which gives you 5 years from the realization of an injury from sexual abuse to file a lawsuit. This is a legal exception that can provide you with the right to a lawsuit, even if you are older than 40. For more information on the discovery rule and other issues that will determine the statute of limitations to sue High Desert Juvenile Detention Center, please take some time to speak with one of our attorneys.
