Who is Eligible to File a Civil Claim in a Clergy Sexual Abuse Case?

Navigating the current laws regarding the statute of limitation for filing a civil sexual abuse claim can be complicated because these laws can be different from state to state or even within districts within a state. In 2019 there were changes in the Texas statute of limitations to increase the amount of time a sexually abused minor could come forward with a claim but some of those changes are not retroactive. This is why it is crucial that you speak to a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.

Who We Represent

Victims of clergy abuse are not limited to any particular age group, race, or religious group. Though Perdue & Kidd has most notably represented clients who are survivors of sexual assault by perpetrators within the Catholic Church, an injury attorney on our team has also secured well-deserved substantial monetary damages from other religious organizations as well. We are committed to providing the highest levels of legal representation in civil litigation cases on behalf of:

  • Minors and their parents
  • Adult victims
  • Adults who were abused when a minor
