Addressing the effects of sexual abuse can be a life-long process. For many people, an important element of healing is to seek justice and accountability. Perpetrators are often empowered by institutions like schools, churches, or youth groups that allow abuse to occur when they should have been protecting victims. Speaking the truth of what happened and pursuing accountability can help ensure that those institutions change their ways and do not let abuse happen again to others in the future.
Often, victims of sexual abuse are not able to confront their abuser or pursue justice for many years after the abuse occurred. Oregon law recognizes this and permits claims to go forward even decades after the fact in certain circumstances. Knowledgeable attorneys at Johnson Johnson & Schaller can help talk through your experiences and advise on whether it might be possible to pursue a claim. We can gather the evidence you need to be successful in court, even against some of the most powerful institutions in society. Obtaining compensation not only allows victims to heal and move forward in their lives, but can also make a difference by promoting change so that others do not go through the same nightmare. Experienced attorneys at Johnson Johnson & Schaller can help you come forward with dignity and demand accountability from those who are responsible.
