Holding Wrongdoers in Positions of Trust and Authority Accountable
In the past few years, numerous adults in Connecticut have brought lawsuits against day care centers, the foster care system, churches and hospitals. In these lawsuits, plaintiffs allege that while they endured sexual abuse as children, these institutions knew about the abuse and failed to take action to stop or prevent it.
Connecticut law views these allegations in a serious light. Penalties against the perpetrator of childhood sexual abuse as well as the institution that employed him or her can be particularly stiff.
Our law firm can bring a legal claim against every party responsible for childhood sexual abuse. Perpetrators are often allowed to continue these heinous acts because those in authority refused to confront the abuser. If institutions knew about a perpetrator's actions or history and did not take the proper steps to report and dismiss a sex abuser, these institutions are as accountable for the abuse as the perpetrator.
Institutions, such as churches, schools and hospitals, must implement procedures to screen candidates for employment. If they don't institute these procedures or fail to follow procedures that have been put in place, they're equally liable for childhood sexual abuse.
