Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports of child sexual abuse by catholic priests in Evansville, Indiana, including the Catholic Diocese of Evansville’s own public report on “credible allegations against the clergy” dating back to the 1970s. At least a dozen priests have been accused of abuse, some with a single allegation of abuse against them, while others with multiple accusers, one as many as 18.
Recent changes to the statutes of limitation have greatly expanded the rights of childhood victims of sexual abuse to bring lawsuits for justice and restitution, including in Indiana.
Lieff Cabraser represents survivors across the U.S. who have been victimized by sexual violence and sexual abuse. We treat every client with care, respect, and compassion as we bring our comprehensive legal skills forward on each case. We have a dedicated team of lawyers, nurse consultants, and paralegals experienced in working with and listening to survivors who work individually with every client in every case to see that justice is won.
If a school, church, sports team, hospital, or another institution failed to protect you from abuse, we may be able to help you hold that institution accountable, and possibly seek compensation and practice changes to prevent that failure from happening again to you or others. We urge you to contact a survivor’s rights lawyer at Lieff Cabraser today about your potential case and recovery.
If you were the victim of abuse unrelated to a larger institution, representation by our firm may not be the best option for your situation. We encourage you to consider representation by other attorneys, as well as support from resources like RAINN.org, WomensLaw.org, MaleSurvivor.org, 1in6.org (another resource for male survivors), iSurvive.org, and AfterSilence.org.
