Kedren Community Health Center Sexual Abuse Lawyers


The Kedren Community Health Center was founded in October of 1965 by Dr. James L. Jones, MD, who was a child psychiatrist. The center was essentially founded in response to the Los Angeles Watts uprising in August 1965. More specifically, Jones and a group of doctors spoke to members of the community about the issues that they believed led to the riots. The doctors acknowledged that the issues were severe and had to be addressed. They ultimately decided that they would start addressing these issues through the youngest children in the community. Over the years, they started offering programs to serve families. The center offered mental health services, child development services, and later more community services, including training, employment, childcare, and food services in South Los Angeles.

Without a doubt, the center has done a lot of good for the community. Unfortunately, centers like Kedren can prove to be very dangerous for those looking for services. This is because the individuals looking to benefits from the services that they offer are usually among the most vulnerable.

What is the average value of these cases? Sexual abuse cases, in general, can be high-value cases. Case values can range from $350,000 to well over $1 million. In fact, some sexual abuse cases have had multi-million-dollar settlements. Ultimately, the value of your sexual abuse case will be based on the details surrounding your case, including the type of abuse suffered, the number of times the abuse occurred, etc.

How long will it take for my case to settle? Here at our law firm, we are committed to settling these types of cases as quickly as possible – normally within 6 to 8 months. However, this is not always possible. Different issues during the legal process can significantly delay the settlement. Typically, most cases can be settled before the two-year mark. However, some cases can take well over two years to settle, especially if they go to trial.

The Statute of Limitations

All claims, including sexual abuse claims, are subject to a statute of limitations – or a deadline to sue. If claimants fail to file their claims within the time that is allowed by the statute of limitations, then they can lose their right to sue entirely. How long do you have to sue for sexual abuse in California? The answer to this question depends on your age at the time of the abuse.
