More and more victims of sexual abuse by a priest or church clergy member have been finding the strength to come forward. It is important to know that whether or not a member of a church clergy has been faced with criminal allegations of sexual abuse, that individual and others can still be confronted with a civil case to pursue damages. In a civil case, a sexual predator or perpetrator is not the only party liable for the damages involved—the church or religious organization that the assaulter was part of may be liable for negligence and thus, restitution as well. Speak with an experienced clergy abuse attorney in Houston to make sure your right to just compensation is protected.
