Restitution for Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Assault

Victims of sexual abuse are entitled to economic and non-economic damages, which will compensate them for the financial and emotional losses they’ve had to endure. One of our attorneys can help you determine which damages you can ask for, but settlements from a childhood sexual abuse lawsuit usually include:

  • Medical expenses 
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Legal fees
  • Punitive damages

Depending on the circumstances, you may also have a case for treble damages, which means you can receive three times the value of your settlement. This additional sum is awarded by the court if there was an intentional cover up of sexual abuse against a minor by an organization or individual. The tripling of damages is particularly relevant in cases involving public entities, like juvenile halls, foster homes, and religious organizations. For more information on treble damages or any other aspect of the legal process, contact us right away to schedule a free case evaluation.    

Juvenile Hall Sexual Abuse Lawsuit– Average Case Values

Many clients come to us with questions about the average value of a sexual abuse case against a government agency. However, there is no way to place an average settlement amount on these cases as a whole. If we had to come up with a range based on past verdicts and settlements, we would say these lawsuits are worth around $1 million to $7.5 million. Of course, there are lawsuits that fall below the $1 million mark, and those that exceed $10 million. What you can potentially recover depends on many factors that we will need to discuss with you in person, so please give us a call to speak with a juvenile hall sexual abuse lawsuit attorney.

How Long do I have to File my Lawsuit?

The state of California is extremely progressive when it comes to legal actions on behalf of childhood sexual assault victims. Adult survivors have until the age of 40 (22 years after turning 18) to file a lawsuit, or up to 5 years from when they discover the effects of childhood sexual abuse (physical or psychological). These conditions address the fact that many victims are unaware that they were sexually abused (in the case of grooming, for example) until they are adults. Victims can also have repressed memories of childhood abuse that they are unable to face until much later in life.

It’s important to note that your statute of limitations is based on the latter of these two dates. This way, victims have as much time as possible to seek compensation in the event they are eligible for a sexual abuse claim. That means you may a case to sue for the abuse you’ve suffered, even if the incidents took place many years ago. A child sexual assault lawyer at our office can explain the laws to you in more detail, so please contact us at your earliest convenience.
