Taking Back The Power From Institutions That Allowed Sex Abuse
Institutional sexual abuse is as common in this generation as the clergy abuse crisis was for the previous generation. This can be a challenge for survivors of institutional abuse because the offenders very often have the power of the institution behind them. You do not have to face this alone, however; the Law Office of Carmen L. Durso in Boston can help.
Attorney Carmen Durso has been representing sexual abuse survivors in Massachusetts for decades. You can trust in our experience, knowledge and compassion as you seek justice and compensation from the institution. We are not intimidated by their size or net worth because we have been litigating against them for 30 years. You can come to us for help with these cases. We know it’s a sensitive matter, and we will make you feel as comfortable as possible when working with us.
When Institutions Fail In Their Duty
Institutions owe a duty of care to their students, patients, children, workers, residents and worshippers. If they fail in this duty, the sexual abuse will not be reported and will probably be allowed to continue as they turn a blind eye to it or attempt to cover it up.
Sexual abuse can happen in any institutional setting or organization, but some of the most common ones include:
- Churches and other places of worship
- Public and private schools
- Doctor’s offices and hospitals
- Youth sports
- Community organizations and youth-serving organizations
- Summer camps
- Day care
- Nursing homes and long-term care facilities
- Juvenile detention, jail or prison
Through hundreds of these types of cases, we found that institutions are typically concerned only about the financial penalties they may face rather than the well-being of the people who suffered abuse. It takes an experienced lawyer to fight them and their lawyers for compensation.
