The Average Value of a Los Padrinos Sexual Abuse Lawsuit
Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall is located at 7285 Quill Dr, Downey, CA 90242. Los Padrinos is one of the oldest juvenile hall facilities in LA County. Since 1957, the facility has served as a temporary detention center for youth ranging from 12 to 18 years of age. The facility is operated by the Los Angeles County Probation center. These facilities are supposed to be safe places for youth while they wait for court dates, adjudication, placement, etc. However, youth can be harmed – specifically sexually abused – at these facilities.

What is the Average Value of Child Sex Abuse Cases against Los Padrinos?
Trying to determine an average value for these types of cases can be difficult, and the result can be misleading. It is ultimately impossible to determine one value that can apply to all child sex abuse cases against juvenile hall detention centers. Rather, we can determine a range value. Some cases can range from $500,000 to $1.5 million. Often, case values surpass this range. In fact, most child sex abuse cases against facilities like detention centers reach multi-million-dollar amounts – from $3 million to $10 million.
It is important to note that child sexual abuse cases are usually associated with higher case values. This is due to many reasons, including that child sex abuse is known to have lasting consequences – physically, mentally, and emotionally. In addition, under state law, sex abuse cases that were part of a cover-up could result in damages being tripled.

Our lawyers are ready to explain things thoroughly and help you determine the possible value of your claim.
What Factors Determine the Value of a Sex Abuse Case against Juvenile Hall Facilities?
As mentioned previously, there are many different factors that must be taken into account when trying to determine the possible value of any claim. Some of these factors include the following:
The type of sexual abuse suffered (like groping, attempted rape, rape, etc.)
The harm resulting from the sexual abuse (including physical, mental, and emotional harm like injuries to reproductive organs, genitals, sexually transmitted infections, post-traumatic stress disorder, fear, depression, anxiety, etc.)
The extent and permanency of the harm resulting from the abuse (i.e., whether the harm had lasting results that required extensive treatment/therapy or that caused the victim to struggle day to day)
Whether the liable entity was grossly negligent
Whether the abuse was covered up by the liable entity or other parties
Whether it’s a single-action case or a class action case (e.g., class action cases typically are associated with higher case values because multiple claimants are represented)
The competency of the legal team handling the claim
Whether the sex abuse case settled out of court or went to trial (as taking a case to court is associated with higher legal fees and can often result in a higher verdict)
An experienced child sex abuse lawyer will be able to effectively evaluate these factors to be able to determine a possible case value for your child sex abuse case against Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall. For more information about the factors that can affect the value of your claim, contact us as soon as possible. Our lawyers are ready to go above it all to help you understand the possible value of your claim.
Are You in Need of a Second Opinion?
If you have already started the legal process elsewhere but are unhappy with the way that things are going, it is important that you seek a second opinion elsewhere. As a client, you have the right to switch lawyers at any time. So, if you are unhappy with the way that your lawyer is handling your case, worried that your lawyer is trying to settle your case for less, or generally unhappy with the way that things are going with your case, you can switch lawyers.
Here at our law firm, our lawyers are ready to help you. We can evaluate your case and provide you with a case evaluation; if you decide to switch lawyers, our lawyers will take care of the technical aspect of the switch and start working on your case immediately.
How Long Can It Take to Settle a Sex Assault Case against Los Padrinos?
Like the other questions addressed above, this question does not have a straightforward answer. The settlement process for these types of cases can vary significantly from case to case. In general, child sex abuse cases against juvenile hall detention centers can be settled in under two years. Class action claims, specifically, can take much longer than two years to settle. Ultimately, there are any factors that can affect the time that it can take to reach a settlement; some of these factors include whether all parties are cooperating and whether the claimant is responsive. In fact, even the competency of the legal team can affect the settlement process.
Here at our firm, we understand how difficult it can be to file a claim and have to wait for a settlement. For victims of child sex abuse, doing so can be even more difficult – as filing a claim can resurface traumas. Some claimants want to settle their claims as quickly as possible to finally be able the experience behind them.
