About the Kedren Community Health Center

The Kedren Community Health Center was founded in 1965 by Dr. James L. Jones, MD. The health center was opened in response to the Watts Riots of 1965. More specifically, Jones and the doctors working by his side wanted to address the issues that the community thought ultimately caused the riots. They thought that the most effective approach would be to provide services to the youngest members of the community – the children – who were mostly unaffected by the problems leading up to the riots. Over time, the health center started offering these health services to entire families, not just the kids. These services included mental health services and child development services. Later, the health center started offering different services, including job training, employment services, childcare, and food services meant to better the community.

Sexual Abuse at the Kedren Community Health Center

Unfortunately, sexual abuse is very common at health centers and community centers. In general, sexual abuse incidents can be attributed to quite a few factors, including negligent hiring, negligent supervision, a lack of security, etc. Unfortunately, those with some sort of power, including doctors and other staff at these centers often take advantage of their position to sexually abuse those who visit the center for services, who are typically among the most vulnerable people in the community.

Yes – You Have the Right to Sue

If you suffered any sort of sexual abuse at the Kedren Community Health Center, you could have the right to file a lawsuit. Whether the abuse consisted of rape, attempted rape, fondling, inappropriate touching, groping, etc., you could sue for the harm that you suffered – physical harm, mental harm, and emotional harm.


If you were sexually abused and are thinking about filing a lawsuit, you might have some of the following questions:

  • Is my sexual abuse claim against the Kedren Community Health Center subject to a statute of limitations?
  • How long do I have to file my sexual abuse lawsuit?
  • Can I still file a lawsuit?

Your claim is subject to a statute of limitations. The specific statute of limitations that applies to your claim will vary based on the details surrounding the incident – one of the most important being your age at the time of the abuse.

How Long Do I Have to Sue?

It is essential that you have a thorough understanding of the time that you have to file your lawsuit. Failing to do so, and ultimately failing to file your claim on time, can lead to losing your right to sue entirely. In other words, if you do not file your claim on time, then you will not have the right to sue for the harm that you suffered. How long do I have to file my sexual abuse claim? Consider the points below:

  • Your sexual abuse occurred as an adult. Given that the sexual abuse you suffered occurred when you were already an adult (18 or older), then your claim will be subject to a 10-year statute of limitations. In other words, you will have 10-years to file your claim.
  • Your sexual abuse occurred as a child. Give that the sexual abuse you suffered occurred when you were still underage, your claim will be subject to a 22-year statute of limitations (22 years after becoming an adult) or until the age of 40. In addition, a 5-year deadline from the date of discovery also applies.
