The Average Value of Central Juvenile Hall Sex Abuse Cases


The Average Value of Central Juvenile Hall Sex Abuse Cases lawyer attorney sue lawsuit case

Central Juvenile Hall, or Central or Eastlake Juvenile Hall, is one of the two juvenile halls operated by the County of Los Angeles. It is located at 1605 Eastlake Avenue. The facility opened up in 1912 and remains operational. The facility consists of 24 buildings, which include infirmaries, school buildings, gyms, living units, a chapel, mechanical areas, and kitchen facilities. The facility houses minors – both boys and girls – prior to court dates, after adjudication, and pending placement/services.

Unfortunately, Central Juvenile Hall, like many other juvenile halls throughout California have been the scene of abuse, including physical abuse, mental abuse, and sexual abuse. Today, we will discuss sexual abuse at these facilities, which is actually child sexual abuse – as all those held at juvenile halls are minors.

If you or a loved one suffered sexual abuse during your time at Central Juvenile Hall, you could have grounds to file a lawsuit. You could also have grounds to recover compensation. If you have considered filing a claim, you might have many questions about the possible result of your claim.

Some of your questions might include the following:

  • What type of compensation could I recover?
  • What is the average value of child sexual abuse cases against Juvenile Halls?
  • What factors determine the value of these types of cases?

What is the Average Value of Child Sex Abuse Case against Central?

It can be nearly impossible to come up with a figure that is relevant to every single case of child sex abuse against a juvenile hall. This is because each case is different. Placing a single value on these types of cases would ultimately be misleading. Although establishing an average value can be difficult, we certainly can establish an average range.

In general, child sex abuse cases tend to be high value. In part, this is due to a California law that increases compensation awarded to the victim whenever there has been a coverup about the abuse. Because of this, range values start out at around $500,000 and go up from there. A good range is $500,000 to $1,500,000. However, many cases surpass this range and can result in multi-million-dollar settlements.

Understanding the Factors that Determine Case Value

To better understand the possible value associated with these types of cases, it is important to be able to understand all the factors that go into the value of a claim. Below, we will discuss some of the most important factors that must be evaluated in order to determine the value of a claim:

  • The specific type of abuse suffered (i.e., rape, attempted rape, groping, etc.)
  • The harm resulting from the sexual abuse (e.g., injuries to genitals, injuries to reproductive organs, sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancy, post-traumatic stress, fear, depression, etc.)
  • The permanency of the harm suffered (i.e., whether the victim able to get treatment and reach a full physical and mental/emotional recover or suffered long-lasting effects)
  • Whether all liable parties/entities were grossly negligent
  • Whether there was any cover up or even a cover up attempt
  • Whether the case went to trial or settled out of court
  • The type of case being filed (i.e., a single action claim or a class action claim)

An experienced child sex abuse lawyer can evaluate your claim, look into all the factors listed above, and determine the possible value of your claim. For more information about the different factors that must be evaluated to determine the value of your claim, contact the experts here at our law firm immediately. Our lawyers are more than ready to evaluate your claim and help you determine what you could potentially recover.

How Long Will It Take to Settle a Sexual Abuse Case against Central Juvenile Hall?

This is also a relatively complicated question to answer. The settlement process can vary significantly from case to case. In general, single case lawsuits for child sexual assault can be settled within two years. Class action lawsuits, on the other hand, can take over two years to settle; class action lawsuits, in general, simply take longer to settle because the process is significantly different and more complex.

Here at our law firm, we understand that you and your family want to settle your case as soon as possible and move on from such a traumatic event. Because of that, we are completely dedicated to settling all sex abuse cases within a reasonable timeframe. Our goal is to settle these cases within six to eight months. It is important to note that many defendants agree to settle quickly and for a fair settlement because they are afraid of the negative press or attention that they will get if the case goes to trial.

Of course, a quick and fair settlement is not always possible. Although we want to settle your case quickly, we will never sacrifice the value of your claim. You can trust that our lawyers will fight aggressively to secure the highest settlement available for your child sex abuse case against Central Juvenile Hall and Los Angeles County within a reasonable timeframe.
