Sexual Exploitation by Counselors & Clergy
Were you or was your child the victim of sexual exploitation by a counselor, therapist, doctor, or teacher? No matter what you might have said, felt, or done during the sexual abuse, sexual exploitation by clergy, youth organization leaders, psychologists, or anyone in charge of children or people in vulnerable positions is wrong.Understanding Your Legal Options
When people in positions of trust and power sexually exploit you or your children, you may have a right to sue them and collect damages because of the harm they've inflicted. Not only that, you also want to do what you can to prevent a sexual predator from exploiting anyone else.
At Rush & Gransee, L.C., in San Antonio, Texas, our San Antonio sexual abuse lawyers are experienced litigators of all sex crimes and illegal sexual conduct, including sexual abuse and exploitation. We believe that people who take advantage of children who are too young to consent to have sex, or people who are their patients under their care, should be made to pay for betraying their trust.
We have all recently heard of clergy sex crimes and situations in which teachers have been molesting their students. Just as damaging as exploitation by these trusted adults is molestation by a counselor or psychologist. The people of Texas place so much importance on making sure psychologists and psychiatrists never exploit patients sexually that they are "strictly liable" under the law. This means that if a therapist has sex with a patient — for any reason or at any time, no matter what the reason or excuse — he or she has no defense in a lawsuit rightfully brought against him or her.
If sexual exploitation or another sex crime has happened to you or a member of your family, we can help. Our firm focuses its practice on effectively litigating personal injury tort claims of this nature. Even if you are embarrassed, angry, and confused, we can still help you, and we maintain the strictest confidentiality about your claim.Contact Us Today for a Free Consultation
