Medford Sexual Abuse Attorney

Sexual Abuse Injury Lawyer Oregon

Reed Law Firm fights for sexual abuse victims. Our most rewarding case put 2,000 attorney-hours into a fight for two young molestation victims. We took everything the perpetrator had, which wasn’t a lot, but which helped two young victims receive college support later on in life.

In other sexual abuse cases we’ve managed, our firm has taken on substantial entities, resulting in significant financial compensation for our clients. An illustrative case involved a spa that employed a masseuse with a known history of sexual misconduct. Initially, the spa’s insurance lawyers dismissed our claim. However, Reed Law Firm’s persistence in investigating revealed that the masseuse’s abusive behavior was not only known but had been previously reported, and his new employer had been forewarned about his conduct.

Our personal injury lawyers’ thorough investigation turned the tide. Confronted with these findings, the insurance lawyers’ dismissive attitude shifted to a willingness to negotiate a settlement. Our client’s recent commendable act, where they heroically saved a busload of children after their YMCA bus driver had a heart attack, was also featured on the front page of a newspaper. This positive publicity further influenced the decision to settle the case favorably.

A sexual abuse case’s success centers on whether or not the employer (of the daycare, spa, rest home, school, drug rehab program) blindly hired the abuser (“negligent hire/retention”), or if they had notice he/she was an abuser. The police / DA often scrutinizes the criminal side of sex abuse cases, and their investigation can help leverage a settlement from the insurance company after the criminal case concludes.

In Southern Oregon, a deeply troubling instance occurred, highlighting the lack of dignity often shown to personal injury victims by insurance companies. A private preschool neglected to adequately vet its bus driver’s dark past. This oversight led to months of abuse endured by the children, the school overlooking several warning signs, leaving a lasting impact of traumatized children.

When the time came for accountability and restitution, the response from the insurance company was dishearteningly aggressive. They vigorously contested each child’s claim, employing tactics of denial and delay at every stage. The process involved numerous appeals. By the time the insurance company finally issued the payments, the once-young children had grown into teenagers. The protracted legal battle further illustrated the need for more compassionate and timely responses in such sensitive cases.
