Testimonials

     Thank you Ron, for allowing me the formal platform to publicly say what happened to me in the early 1970’s. It may have not been the “jury of my peers” but it was a group of respected professionals who verbally confirmed to me that what “may have” happened… “it was not my fault”. I will say that I am now at a different place in my head; maybe starting to feel closure? When we initially communicated, I had no idea I would be writing this email. Please forgive my delay in expressing my appreciation to you for your guidance and support in this extremely difficult realization of my past. Judge [name redacted] stated that you were true advocates for the abused, and he is so right. If you can, please extend my deepest appreciation to Judge [name redacted] for his kindness and wisdom. Please continue to assist lost souls like myself. May you and your family be safe and healthy.

- A Client-Survivor of Clergy Childhood Sexual Abuse

First and Foremost – Confidential Inquiry & Discussion

Perhaps as strong and enduring as any other effects on a survivor of abuse are the shame and guilt that can be overwhelming and debilitating, compounded by a resulting mistrust of others and avoidance of any acknowledgment or conversation concerning the abuse. We recognize how difficult and oftentimes frightening acknowledging the abuse and describing it can be. Be assured that any conversation about your situation with our firm is confidential. When we respond to an inquiry, we do so with the sensitivity, respect, and discretion necessary to provide meaningful feedback. If you prefer to speak with us directly regarding your incident, please call The Meneo Law Group at 1-866-371-8506 or send us a confidential email at confidentialinquiry@meneolawgroup.com.

Financial Compensation for Sexual Abuse Cases

Sexual Abuse Compensation - Photo by: andriano.cz

Potential clients often ask “what will I receive if I bring a claim as a survivor of abuse?” The answer to this question is not easily determined nor should it be. All facts and circumstances about a survivor’s particular situation are important in assessing what can be expected in the way of monetary damages. Of course, in discussing any estimate of financial compensation, the context must always be recognized, i.e. is the discussion about a potential jury verdict after a contentious trial or a settlement arrived at through negotiation or mediation? Verdicts can be in the millions of dollars and settlements can range upward from hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In addition to childhood sexual abuse claims against religious institutions, boarding schools, rideshare services and the Boy Scouts of America, we pursue claims on behalf of our clients who have been sexually abused by the following individuals:

  • Health Care Professionals
  • College Professors
  • Coaches
  • Employers
  • Members of the YMCA

Financial compensation generally involves three components:

  • Economic damages such as out-of-pocket costs for medical treatment, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, anticipated future expenses;
  • Non-economic damages for pain, suffering, emotional and psychological distress and impacts; and
  • Possibly punitive damages to punish the wrong-doer for the outrageous conduct that is the sexual abuse.

We are prepared to discuss these issues with you but again, there are many considerations in assessing the potential amount of financial compensation that may be obtained in Sexual Abuse cases.

     My wife and I cannot thank you enough for your help in this case. We want to make note of your professionalism and empathy in this matter. The actual velocity here is astonishing compared to most legal endeavors. - W.M.

Protect your Rights

Liberal Time Limits for Asserting a Sexual Abuse Claim

Asserting a Sexual Abuse claim may be subject to various deadlines – formally known as “statutes of limitations” – which limit the time within which a claim can be brought. These limits vary from state-to-state and, for each state, differ depending upon the type of claim. Generally speaking, statutes of limitations are divided into two distinct groups: those that apply to criminal acts and those that apply to non-criminal or civil claims. Many states have adopted very liberal time limits for sexual abuse cases. For example, in Connecticut, the general time limit for prosecution of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation or sexual assault of a minor (under the age of 18) is thirty (30) years from the date the survivor reaches the age of majority (age 18) [CGS 54-193a].

Disclaimer: Submission of information to The Meneo Law Group does not establish an attorney-client relationship and should not be viewed or understood as doing so. An attorney-client relationship can only be established by the agreement of both the attorney and the client and must be reduced to a written retainer agreement that has been signed by both parties.
