Experiencing sexual abuse or finding out that one of your family members has been victimized in this way, is shattering. In addition to a criminal case that may be brought against the perpetrator, the victim may also pursue a civil action.  Handling one of these civil cases is extremely unique.

What does New Jersey law currently provide for victims of sexual abuse?  At this program, our esteemed panel will address the civil cause of action, defenses to sexual abuse claims against institutions and individual clients, and the liability and insurance issues that flow.

The insight provided by this panel will be invaluable to both experienced and new attorneys on a difficult and not often spoken about topic — recourse available to victims of sex abuse for trauma, physical pain, emotional pain and more. Join us and learn how to strategically litigate these claims.
