Los Angeles Sexual Harassment Attorney
Compassionate Support, Aggressive Representation
Victims of sexual harassment have a right to pursue legal actions – or lawsuits – in order to recover their damages. Although some sexual harassment or abuse cases may involve criminal proceedings for an offender who faces criminal charges, it is important to realize that these criminal proceedings do not award victims compensation. In order to further hold defendants accountable for their actions and to recover monetary compensation, victims must file claims in a civil court.
Similar to personal injury claims, sexual harassment and abuse claims may allow victims to recover compensation for their physical, emotional, and / or financial damages – including their mental anguish, pain and suffering. In cases where abuse or harassment took place in an institutional or professional setting, individuals or entities in positions of power may also be held liable for their failures to prevent or stop the abuse. Examples of these parties may include:
- Teachers, administrators, and school districts
- Physicians, therapists, and other medical professionals
- Co-workers and employers
- Sports coaches and sports organizations
Whatever the circumstances may be, our Ventura sexual harassment lawyers understand that these can be immensely challenging and emotionally difficult cases. As such, we offer our sincere support to victims and their families and use our extensive experience and determination to fight on their behalves.
