Sacramento clergy abuse is extremely traumatic. You or a loved one may still be suffering the psychological effects of childhood sexual abuse. You are not alone. We can help you bring a perpetrator to justice, hold a church accountable and go up against the Diocese of Sacramento, if appropriate. Our Sacramento religious abuse lawyers want to help you obtain maximum compensation by holding one or more parties accountable for clergy abuse.
If you or a loved one has experienced this terrible crime, you have options. You may be able to file a personal injury civil claim if you are within the statute of limitations. California law gives childhood sex abuse survivors 8 years from the age of majority (26 years old) or 3 years from when the survivor discovered the abuse. If you have passed your time limit, you may still be entitled to a portion of the Independent Compensation Fund. Our experienced attorneys can assist you with the claims process to optimize your results.
