What are Common Sexual Abuse Cases?

Sexual abuse victims may seek legal representation in civil cases to seek compensation for the harm they have suffered.

Sexual abuse cases aren't just limited to adults either. Children, teens, and adults of all ages can be victims of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse cases can be emotionally trying for everyone, so it is essential to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney who focuses their entire law practice on handling sexual abuse cases. An attorney can help protect your rights, navigate the court system, and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Sexual abuse cases are often difficult to prove because no one ever wants to admit they were responsible for allowing a child to be abused. However, our law firm knows how to find documents, witnesses, and other evidence necessary to build a successful case so those responsible for the abuse are accountable.

How Do Sexual Abuse Cases Start?

Sexual abuse cases start when the victim gathers the courage to come forward and tell their story. While many victims fear coming forward, they will say in hindsight it was the best decision they made and they now feel free.

After coming forward, victims may chose to seek justice against the perpetrator in a criminal case. The goal of the criminal case is to put the perpetrator in jail. The attorney handling this case is an appointed prosecutor.

If a business or organization allowed the abuse to happen, the victim can also also seek justice through a civil case. The goal of the civil case is to get compensation for the victim to offset medical costs, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Victims who want to move forward with a civil case will need an experienced sexual abuse lawyer to navigate the complicated legal issues. That's where we come into play and stand by your side every step of the way.

Why Use Andreozzi + Foote

Victims who want to move forward with a civil case will need an experienced sexual abuse lawyer to navigate the complicated legal issues. That's where we come into play and stand by your side every step of the way.


While we cannot promise clients an exact result at the outset of the case, there is one thing we can promise. At Andreozzi + Foote we pledge to always be honest and tell our clients the truth. It is our belief that most survivors have been betrayed and suffered an abuse of power, and it is very difficult for them to trust others. To help our clients reclaim their power and restore their trust, we view it as our absolute obligation to be forthright with our clients even if that means sharing information that may not be well received.

Unfortunately, lawyers in the past several decades have done very little to shake the professions deceitful reputation. However, we refuse to be defined by those who do not share our values. Our integrity is reflected not only in our communications with clients, but in every way we conduct our business. We work hard to gain the respect of opposing parties and judges and believe that this approach leads to better results for our clients.


Because our firm is dedicated and focused on pursuing sex abuse cases for survivors, we believe we give our clients a competitive advantage over other law firms. We know the laws pertaining to sexual abuse, the attorneys who routinely handle the cases, the experts who often testify, and other issues that often end up in a case. Compare that with a law firm who may be dealing with a legal issue, lawyer, or expert they have never dealt with before.

Our commitment to survivors has helped us better understand what they want out of their case and how they want to get there. Andreozzi + Foote understands that all survivors have paths that are unique to them, to their histories, their circumstances, their trauma, and what they want or need to move through their experience to a different place. We are committed to listening to each client and taking the time to understand their needs and desired outcomes. We will chase down every possible avenue for justice for our clients.


Our attorneys have represented well over a thousand victims of sexual abuse with their civil cases. Many of these involve cases straight out of the news headlines like Penn State/ Jerry Sandusky, the Catholic Church, and the Boy Scouts. However, for every case that makes national headlines, there are hundreds of other cases that we handle that are not in the press. While our practice area is very specific to representing victims of sexual abuse, we have broadly handled different types of sex abuse cases including but not limited to cases against schools, churches and places of worship, child care providers, health care providers, group homes, government and municipal agencies, foster and adoptive care providers, youth organizations, sports teams, peeping Toms, child pornographers, bars and restaurants, and any other entity that is charged with the care and protection of children.

We are proud of the work we have performed particularly when it improves the lives of survivors. Our lawyers are some of the first in the country to take on sexual abuse cases and win settlements that have changed their lives and set a legal precedent to do the same for other survivors. We have taken the calls and cases most attorneys would not. We have spent countless hours researching every aspect of the variables that impact cases within the laws across the country to create legal strategies and arguments that win cases. Even when the law precludes us from filing, our attorneys have found creative ways to gain access to information and to advocate on their behalf to the institutions that hurt them by covering up their abuse. We have fought behind the scenes, on the steps of courthouses for legal change, and in the courtrooms for years. We pride ourselves on helping our clients regain their sense of empowerment through success in the civil litigation process. We have won trials and received settlements for tens of millions of dollars for our survivor clients. However, we are equally as proud of the non-economic results we have obtained. Without a doubt, our clients have forced dozens of institutions to change their operations and enact more stringent child protection procedures. Intern this will protect children in the future and prevent sexual abuse.


Our attorneys are sought-after experts in the field of sexual abuse representation. When stories break, we are often the first call reporters make to get an in-depth legal analysis of a case, or a new law and how it impacts survivors. We have been interviewed numerous times by all major networks including NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, ABC World News Tonight, Good Morning America, CBS Evening News, CBS This Morning, Anderson Cooper 360, CNN, HLN, and more.

Our lawyers are committed to trauma-informed lawyering, this means we consider the unique traumatic experiences our clients face, and we build that into our overall approach. We do this by first taking the time to understand the impact of the trauma on our clients. Our lawyers have received training in identifying trauma, adapting the client-attorney relationship to meet the needs of the client, and coming up with creative litigation strategies taking all these factors into account. Our attorneys have also lectured across the country and presented seminars to advocates and other attorneys on issues related to childhood and adult sexual abuse. We have also been called upon by legislators seeking to make changes to the law that might advance the interest of survivors.

Frequently asked questions
Q: Who can be held accountable for the abuse I suffered?

Generally speaking, there may be multiple parties who can be held responsible for sexual abuse: individuals and institutions, as well as officials and any other people who had knowledge of or aided in the abuse. Our team can review your case and help you determine who should be held accountable for your pain and suffering.

Q: Are there time limits to file a sexual abuse lawsuit?

A: Every state has different laws regarding the statute of limitations on filing a civil lawsuit related to sexual abuse. It is essential to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible, so you don’t miss out on your opportunity to seek justice and compensation. Generally, it is best to file a lawsuit as quickly as possible since many states have a 2-year maximum deadline.

Q: What kind of compensation can I receive from a sexual abuse lawsuit?

A: The compensation available to victims of sexual abuse depends on the circumstances and extent of their suffering. Generally, you can recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Our attorneys will work hard to ensure you receive total compensation for your losses. The more leverage you have with hard evidence, the more potential compensation you can receive.

Q: What does a sexual abuse lawyer do?

They will review evidence, build a strong case, negotiate with insurers or defendants on behalf of their client, and take the necessary legal steps to ensure that justice is served. Our team is committed to providing you with excellent legal representation so you can get the compensation you deserve.

Q: What evidence is necessary for a sexual abuse case?

A: Evidence of sexual abuse can vary depending on the particular case. Generally speaking, you may need to provide medical records, witness statements, police reports, and other documentation that provides evidence of the abuse. Our team can help you uncover any evidence necessary to build a strong case for you. At our firm, we understand the emotional and financial toll that sexual abuse takes on victims and their families.

Q: What should I do if I was the victim of sexual abuse?

Our team can provide legal counsel and representation so that you can receive justice for your suffering.

Q: What is the difference between a civil case and a criminal case?

A: A civil case is a case in which one party sues another for monetary damages, while a criminal case is a case brought by a government prosecutor against the alleged perpetrator(s) of a crime. In a civil case, the standard of evidence is that one party may be found liable if “a preponderance of the evidence,” meaning more than half, shows that the party is liable. In a criminal case, however, the evidence must show guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Penalties also differ. While both cases may result in monetary punishments like damages or fines, only criminal cases can result in probation, incarceration, or other non-monetary consequences.
