In sexual abuse cases, there may be multiple parties that should be held liable. Not only can a civil lawsuit be brought against an individual perpetrator but also against a third-party whose negligence or wrongdoing may have allowed the abuse to occur.
Sadly, sexual abuse can happen almost anywhere, and particularly in the case of children is often committed by someone the victim trusts or is in a position of authority.
Common places where sexual abuse can occur:
Sexual assault injury cases are often premises liability cases. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that parking lots, ramps, stairwells, and other out-of-the-way places on their property are adequately lit and secured to prevent violent attacks. If you were injured under these circumstances, it is your right to pursue a personal injury claim. When a property owner fails to provide a reasonably safe premises resulting in harm to you or a loved one, they may be responsible for damages related to your injuries. It is imperative to discuss your case with an experienced Houston sex abuse lawyer as soon as possible to determine your legal options and your ability to recover against a negligent property owner.
