Until recently, certain schools, churches, youth groups, and other institutions regularly and systematically suppressed incidents of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct against children and other vulnerable persons. In recent years, victims have come forward and have begun to review the sprawling extent of offending institution’s efforts to conceal incidents of abuse and protect abusers. Likewise, they have revealed catastrophic and lifelong injuries suffered by the victims of sexual abuse.
At Markette & Chouinard, P.C. we have pursued claims against institutions on behalf of sexual abuse victims as minors, and adults who were sexually abused as children. We recognize the sensitive nature associated with sexual abuse claims, and that discretion and anonymity may be important to the individuals who have suffered sexual abuse. If you are a victim of sexual abuse and are considering pursuing a claim against those responsible, we are here for you and will rely on our experience in this area to assist you.
Fees in sexual abuse cases are charged on a “contingent” basis, meaning we do not charge a fee unless we recover money for you. Consultations regarding potential sexual abuse claims are always free.
