Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Funding
Advances on the settlement of sexual abuse cases are available to victims of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse lawsuit funding applies to cases where you were sexually abused by a person outside of your family. These abusers are often in positions of trust or authority in your life. Some examples of these abusers are listed below.
- therapists or doctors
- co-workers, supervisors, or managers
- law enforcement officers
One of the key issues our underwriters look at in sexual abuse cases is the “statute of limitations”. The “statute of limitations” is the maximum period after an event has occurred that a legal proceeding may be initiated regarding those events. Please discuss with your attorney how the statute of limitations may affect your case. Sexual abuse victims will often delay reporting the abuse due to fear or shame regarding the sexual abuse events.
If the sexual abuse occurred while you were a minor, you will not be able to apply for sexual abuse lawsuit funding until you become an adult (18 years of age).
The documents we need to see for sexual abuse lawsuits include the following
- attorney/client retainer agreement (optional)
- police/incident report (if exists)
- complaint document
- medical records, psychiatric, or psychological records related to the effects of the sexual abuse
- proof of defendant’s insurance
