Florida Sexual Abuse Lawyer
When schools, churches, nursing homes, day care centers, hospitals, and other organizations fail to protect children and vulnerable adults from sexual predators, the victims suffer lasting emotional harm. Our Florida sexual abuse lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. fight to obtain compensation for victims of sexual assault, child molestation, and all other types of sexual abuse.
At Freidin Brown, P.A., our lawyers handle sexual abuse cases that involve:
- Sexual molestation of children by priests, ministers, or clergy
- Sexual assault by teachers, Boy Scout leaders, or day care workers
- Sexual exploitation of patients by their therapists and counselors
- Sexual abuse of nursing home residents by staff members
In most cases, sexual molestation and abuse occurs because an organization has failed to take reasonable steps to protect the victim. Often, churches and other organizations ignore warning signs of sexual abuse – or worse, know about the abuse but do nothing to prevent it. If you are ready to take action for the wrongdoing you have suffered, call Freidin Brown, P.A. today.

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Florida Sexual Abuse Cases?
If you were a victim of sexual molestation as a child, it’s not too late to come forward. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the statute of limitations does not apply in childhood sexual abuse cases if you can show that you didn’t discover the abuse until you became an adult. In these cases, you have four years from the time you first became aware of the suppressed memory to file suit. Otherwise, you have seven years to file after you have turned 18, or four years after leaving the dependency of the abuser.
