How Much is My Clergy Sex Abuse Case Worth?

Clerk Sex Abuse Every case is different. However, to assess the value of a clergy sex abuse claim, lawyers, insurance companies and juries often consider the following:

  1. Forensic, direct and circumstantial evidence of the clergy sex abuse;
  2. Whether the alleged sexual encounter was consensual or not;
  3. The ages of the victim and the clergy member;
  4. The diagnosis and the extent of the victim’s injuries;
  5. Whether the victim’s injuries are permanent;
  6. The medical treatment, pain and suffering and lost time from work that resulted from the clergy sex abuse; and
  7. Whether the victim has suffered a loss of enjoyment of life as a result of the physical or mental anguish suffered.

My Religion Teaches Forgiveness. Should I Just Forgive My Abuser?

Forgiveness A victim of clergy sexual abuse may or may not decide to forgive their abuser to provide themselves with a sense of moral closure. However, the decision to do so does not prevent a victim from taking legal action.

Clergy members and their religious organizations should be held responsible for their actions, inactions and the consequences that victims have suffered as a result. Additionally, taking action now will hopefully help to prevent these individuals from being able to harm others in the future.
