Beaumont Child Sexual Abuse Attorney

Representing Injury Victims Since 1981

The sexual abuse of a minor by a trusted adult in a company or organization is emotionally traumatizing. Minor victims of molestation, abuse, and sexual assault face years of rehabilitative therapy and hard work. Our firm understands how sensitive these issues can be and we handle these cases as quickly and discreetly as possible, putting effort into doing our job well for the good of our clients.

At Clay Dugas and Associates, our goal is to minimize the damage to victims that has been done by others. We fight to help them get fair and just compensation so victims will have the resources they need to overcome the psychological pain and mental anguish they’ve suffered.

Cases We Handle

While offenders in these serious cases can be strangers, most often they are individuals working for, or associated with, trusted companies or organizations. In many cases, the sex offender is someone victims know and trust.

These cases are often brought against the following:

  • Members of the clergy or all faiths
  • School teachers or counselors
  • Daycare workers
  • Summer camp counselors
  • Cruise ship child care or activity directors

    No matter who the offender is, the damage they cause is devastating. That is why, in addition to the offenders themselves being held liable, employers, churches, businesses, and volunteer organizations with control and oversight over offenders must be held accountable.

    Our Beaumont personal injury attorneys protect our clients and their families, pursuing negligent and abusive parties to not only seek maximum compensation but to prevent them from harming other children in the same way. Our goal is to protect past and future victims and the community as a whole.

    The Devastating Consequences of Sexual Abuse

    Although many victims of sexual abuse do not suffer physical injuries, the psychological harm can be more devastating. Serious psychological trauma can lead to self-destructive behavior later in life. As time passes, victims can and often do experience severe self-esteem issues, drug or alcohol dependence, major depression, and social phobia. Clay Dugas and Associates handles cases of sexual abuse in courtrooms throughout the United States.
