Ask Us About Diocese Compensation Programs
Diocese compensation programs were designed to provide monetary restitution to victims of religious leader abuse for the long-lasting trauma they have to deal with. While this may sound like a compassionate program, we may recommend not accepting it until you have received a case evaluation from our law firm. You may be entitled to more compensation than what they are offering, and by registering with the program you are forfeiting your right to pursue legal action against the diocese. To learn more about how you can seek justice for what happened to you or a family member, call our Maryland Priest Sexual Abuse Lawyers at Cohen & Cohen right away.
How to Fight Against Clergy Sexual Abuse
The religious leaders are entrusted with the duty to report suspected incidents of child sexual abuse. Devastatingly, the church in itself often protects its clergy even when they are obviously in the wrong. That is why many survivors who are fighting against clergy sexual abuse choose to include the church in their lawsuit as well, to bring their stories to light so other innocent children do not become victims. The suffering of one child is horrible enough, and to cover it up means allowing that predator to commit more acts. A party or entity that compounds the situation or hides what happened purposefully can become liable.
