Legal resources for victims of child sexual abuse

As this blog recently discussed, a recent Pennsylvania grand jury report detailed widespread child sexual abuse in the Catholic church at the hands of priests. Some have described the problem as a crisis or an epidemic. In total, greater than 300 priests were responsible for the abuse of greater than 1,000 children in dioceses across Pennsylvania. The abuse went on in the state for seventy years.

What is a personal injury claim and how does one begin?

A personal injury claim for damages is an important tool for victims who have been injured by a careless driver. A personal injury claim for damages provides an option for victims of negligent drivers to pursue compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages suffered in a car or other traumatic accident.

Grand jury report finds significant church sex abuse

Sexual abuse is something no victim should ever have to suffer. According to a recent grand jury report, internal documents from Catholic dioceses throughout Pennsylvania reveal that greater than 300 "predator priests" are credibly accused of abusing greater than 1,000 child victims. The grand jury also noted its belief that the true number of child sexual abuse victims at the hands of the church is in the thousands. In addition, the grand jury identified a pattern of practice of concealing the abuse. The abuse dates back to 1947 in six different dioceses throughout Pennsylvania.
