Pittsburgh Sexual Abuse Attorneys

When a person in a position of authority such as a teacher, coach, mentor or clergy member sexually abuses children or other vulnerable people, the emotional scars can last a lifetime. While no amount of money can ease the pain of this horrific crime, holding the responsible parties accountable can bring a sense of closure to victims.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of sexual abuse or molestation, the experienced Pittsburgh sexual abuse lawyers of Samuel J. Cordes & Associates will help you bring your abuser to justice. To discuss your case with one of our lawyers, call 412-567-5444.

The statute of limitations for filing a civil lawsuit against your abuser is 12 years from the date of the child's 18th birthday, or if your injury occurred when you were a minor, before you turn 30. Even if the statute of limitations has run out in your case, we may be able to help you overcome it. Contact us to learn more.

Answering the Important Questions

In a sexual abuse case, one of the most important questions that must be answered is, "Who is responsible for the abuse?" In addition to the person who physically abused you, other entities may be responsible for the abuse, including:

  • Schools
  • School districts
  • Churches
  • Youth organizations
  • Employers
  • The state or federal government

To prove that an entity was responsible for your abuse, an attorney must show that the entity was aware of the abuse and let it continue. Our lawyers will complete a thorough investigation into the entity and abuser's history to identify whether there has been a pattern of abuse. We have been litigating sexual abuse cases since the early 1990s, and we understand what is needed to build the strongest possible case against your abuser and all other responsible parties.
