Vermont Sexual Assault Attorneys

You Deserve Justice & Compensation

Vermont law allows survivors of sexual abuse to seek compensation from their abusers and the organizations that harbor those abusers. In some cases, justice can be obtained for people who were abused years or even decades ago thanks to the state’s plaintiff-favoring laws.

Who Can You Sue for Sexual Abuse?

The party you will want to answer for your sexual abuse will, of course, be the person or persons who assaulted you. The law allows you to demand compensation from them to answer for the harm that they have inflicted upon you, even if that happened years in the past. However, many sexual abuse cases do not target only an individual abuser but also the organization or institution that enabled them to abuse vulnerable or dependent parties.

Examples of organizations that could be named as a defendant in a sex abuse case are:

  • Employers, companies, or corporations
  • Educational institutions like a college or university
  • Religious organizations like a Catholic diocese
  • Youth programs like the Boy Scouts of America

Why Would You Sue an Organization?

Oftentimes, the person who abused you can be held criminally accountable through charges, prosecution, and sentencing. But they might not have any personal assets available to pay for your damages like your pain and suffering. If we can prove that a larger organization protected, enabled, or harbored your abuser, then the damages you can secure through your claim might primarily come from that organization.

Furthermore, bringing forth a sexual abuse claim that names an organization as a defendant can help spark significant change within that organization. Important regulatory updates that help ensure no one else is sexually abused in a similar way could be made possible thanks to your legal efforts. We are here to help you discover and amplify your voice, however you would like to use it.

We are Prepared to Work for You

All the work that must go into a sexual abuse lawsuit can be exhausting and harrowing. If you are still dealing with the emotional aftermath of surviving sexual assault, then you probably will not want to deal with the complexities of such a claim. This is where our attorneys can step in and take over, so you don’t miss your opportunity to hold your abuser accountable.
