SEXUAL ABUSE DEFINITION
Sexual abuse can be caused by individuals, organizations, or individuals acting on behalf of an organization. Whenever someone in a position of leadership, trust or influence takes advantage of someone over whom they have influence, for the purpose of forcing unwanted sexual activity, that is sexual abuse. Similarly, when someone uses force or threats to take advantage of another’s vulnerability and forces unwanted sexual activity, that is sexual abuse. Sexual abuse can be the result of an extended period of “grooming” or can be an opportunistic event. Although children are especially vulnerable to sexual abuse, teenagers and adults are often victimized by sexual predators.
Sexual abuse can traumatize victims emotionally and psychologically in addition to the physical harm that can be experienced. The effects can be lasting and devastating. Contact a Sweet James sexual abuse attorney immediately after suffering sexual abuse.
TYPES OF SEXUAL ABUSE
People are often victimized by those they should be able to trust the most in government, businesses, religious institutions, schools, sports, and clubs. Abuse sometimes takes years to be uncovered and brought to justice. One of the problems in proving many sexual abuse cases is that organizations cover up sexual abuse.

HOW DOES THE INSURANCE CLAIM PROCESS WORK?
You’re not in good hands, and they’re not looking out for you – insurance companies are looking out for themselves.
An insurance adjuster has no incentive to treat you fairly. Their “job well done” is spending as little as possible to settle your insurance claim. There are many tactics adjusters will use, but their motivation is universal – to deny, delay, and devalue your claim. This behavior by insurance companies places a serious financial burden on their policyholders.
These are some of the largest and most powerful companies in the world. They use their resources to increase profits. You need a Sweet James sexual abuse attorney looking out for you. Studies done by insurance companies show that accident injury victims with attorneys get 40% more money than those without attorneys.
We’ve built our firm on the values embraced by Main Street – not Wall Street. At Sweet James, our goals and yours are perfectly aligned. Our success is based on your success. It is in our interest to get you the best results possible.

HOW DO CONTINGENCY FEES WORK?
Contingency fees are used most often in personal injury lawsuits or worker’s compensation cases where money is being claimed. According to the American Bar Association, a client pays contingency fees to a sexual abuse attorney only if the attorney handles the case successfully.
In a contingent fee arrangement, the sexual abuse attorney agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the amount of money finally paid to the client. If you win the case, the sexual abuse attorney’s fees come out of the money awarded to you. If you lose, neither you nor the sexual abuse attorney will get any money and you will not be required to pay your attorney for the work they do on the case.
Sweet James sexual abuse lawyers only get paid if you win.
