Diocesan Insurance Program Lawyers Washington DC

Diocesan Insurance Program Lawyers Washington DCAt Cohen & Cohen, our Diocesan Insurance Program Lawyers Washington DC families trust may recommend not accepting compensation through a church insurance program. If you or a loved one endured sexual abuse at the hands of a priest, rabbi, or other clergy members, then you may be entitled to compensation. Due to how often claims of priest sexual abuse occur, the church may have an insurance program to handle the situation directly.

While this may sound like a good idea initially, the intention is to silence victims so they don’t bring their story out into the public. Victims may receive financial compensation but without their story being brought to light, the offender can continue to inflict harm on others in the church.


Diocese Independent Compensation Programs

An independent insurance program was established by the church to reimburse survivors of priest abuse for the trauma they are faced with. We often suggest that victims of sexual abuse do not sign up for or enter a contract associated with the independent compensation program. By doing so, you may be forfeiting your right to take legal action against the Diocese.


Seeking Justice For Sexual Abuse

Dealing with incidents of sexual abuse can be very difficult. If you were the victim, you may be going through painful emotions and are having trouble processing events. It isn’t uncommon for sexual abuse survivors to have symptoms such as loss of appetite, increased appetite, drug and/or alochol abuse, self-harm, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. We understand that you may need support from a trusted therapist while going through the steps of filing a lawsuit. Our Lawyers for Diocesan Insurance Program in Washington, DC can ensure that you get the care you need during this time.

Types of damages that are common for sexual abuse cases include:

  • Medical Costs
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Financial Support
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Loss of Enjoyment for Life
  • Expenses for Relocation
  • Court Fees

A sexual predator often doesn’t just stop after one child. They may continue to abuse children over many years. And despite the tragic suffering, an abused child will go through, the church may be motivated to cover up the incident to protect their reputation. You can trust that we will fight relentlessly and are confident in our ability to go up against even the largest religious institutions.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
