How Our Sexual Abuse Attorneys Help
While the individual may have been tried and convicted in court, he or she is rarely held financially accountable for their actions. Our sexual abuse attorneys hold the employing institutions (e.g. the daycare, dioceses, or nursing homes) responsible for their failure to properly screen employees and supervise the perpetrator.
Dealing With Sexual Abuse
Our sexual abuse attorneys go above and beyond to help families heal from sexual abuse. We’ll be your legal advocates, but also take care to make sure you are connected with therapists and other health care professionals to help your family move on from the abuse.
When it comes the legalities, we’ll build your case by speaking to witnesses, medical experts, and the perpetrator’s organization. From there, we’ll establish fault where appropriate and assess damages in your case.
Sexual Abuse Law in New Mexico
Doctors and other medical professionals are required to report abuse according to a New Mexico sexual abuse law called the Children’s Code. So are police officers, school officials, the clergy and any other person suspecting sexual abuse or physical abuse. If an organization failed to report their suspicions according to sexual abuse law, they could face fines and jail time for violating the laws.
