Florida Sexual Abuse Lawyers
Achieving Exceptional Results for Victims of Sexual Abuse by Clergy, Teachers, Counselors, Nursing and Group Home Employees in Miami-Dade, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Broward, Fort Lauderdale, St. Lucie, Martin, and throughout Southern Florida
When schools, churches, nursing homes and other organizations fail to protect children and vulnerable adults from sexual predators, the victims suffer lasting emotional harm. Our Miami lawyers obtain compensation for victims of clergy sex abuse, child molestation, and other types of sexual abuse. We handle cases involving:
- Sexual molestation of children by priests, ministers, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, day care workers, and other adults
- Sexual exploitation of patients by therapists and counselors
- Sexual abuse of nursing home residents by staff
In most cases, sexual molestation and abuse occurs because an organization failed to take reasonable steps to protect victims. Often churches and other organizations ignore warning signs of sexual abuse — or worse, know about the abuse but do nothing to prevent it.
The south Florida lawyers at Freidin, Dobrinsky, Brown & Rosenblum P.A. know how to hold abusers and their employers accountable. Our recoveries include:
- $1.5 million jury verdict for a minor female student at a South Florida school for injuries she sustained when she was sexually attacked by classmates
- $2 million award, plus court-awarded attorneys' fees, for a victim of sexual harassment by a City Manager.
If you think your child may be a victim of sexual abuse, immediately remove your child from the abusive environment. Then contact our attorneys so we can begin an investigation and protect your child’s right to compensation.
Adult Victims of Child Sexual Molestation
If you were a victim of sexual molestation as a child, it's not too late to come forward. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the state's four-year statute of limitations does not apply in childhood sexual abuse cases if you can show, because of suppressed memory, that you didn't discover the abuse until you became an adult. In these cases, you have four years from the time you first became aware of the suppressed memory to file suit.
We handle all Florida sexual abuse claims on a contingent fee basis. That means you do not pay attorney fees or costs unless we make a recovery for you.
