California Child Sexual Abuse
Morgan & Morgan attorneys are helping California victims of child sexual abuse seek justice and compensation from the institutions that failed to protect them; including schools, churches, summer camps, religious organizations, and youth recreation organizations like the Boy Scouts of America.
The state of California has passed a new statute of limitations law that increases the age until which victims of child sexual abuse can file a civil lawsuit. This means that many victims get a second chance at seeking the justice and compensation they deserve.
Morgan & Morgan attorneys have successfully fought for victims and their families across the country. If you or a loved one suffered sexual abuse as a child, we want to fight for you.
A Failure to Protect
Millions of American children spend significant time outside the direct care of their parents, and under the responsibility of various scholastic, religious, and recreational organizations. Parents trust these organizations to keep their children safe.
But tragically, many of these organizations have long track records of failing to protect the children in their care from sexual predators. From the Catholic church to the Boy Scouts, not only were not enough efforts made to ensure that children would be safe, but known abusers were allowed to remain on staff, and attempts were made to cover up incidents and patterns of sexual abuse.
The outcome of these failures are devastating: untold thousands of children, stretching back decades, suffering the most horrific abuses and assaults. Thousands of children whose lives were forever altered, in a place where they and their parents thought they were safe.
