Types Sexual Assault Cases

Misconduct by Coaches

If you or your child has been sexually abused by a coach, you have the legal right to bring a claim against the coach and the school or organization that hired this individual. Chances are if you or your child were sexually abused, then others were too. The Jackman Law Firm has the experience and resources to reveal the truth and hold the coach accountable. You or your child could recover money for the emotional and physical abuse you endured, especially when you work with one of our attentive team members. 

Sexual Abuse by Priests

If you or your child have been sexually abused by a Catholic priest, you have the legal right to bring a claim against the church for money. Depending on the nature of the abuse, you or your child could receive a lot of money for the sexual or psychological abuse you or your child have endured. The Jackman Law Firm stands ready to help you and your child. Our consultation is free.

Boy Scout Sexual Abuse

If you or your child have been sexually abused by the Boy Scouts, we understand this is an incredibly difficult and emotionally sensitive subject to talk about. We are compassionate and understanding lawyers. We have a team in Tacoma who can help you get the justice you or your child deserves. We will fight for you and stand by your side.

Sexual Mistreatment at School

If your child has been sexually abused by a teacher, they may be reluctant to talk about this experience or they might exhibit a few warning signs. For instance, they might shower or bathe frequently, show signs of depression, demonstrate an unwillingness to attend school, and appear anti-social. In many cases, the teacher will send inappropriate text and picture and video messages with the student, which the parent should be able to access.

Incidents of sexual abuse at schools are serious, and our detail-oriented Tacoma lawyers could collect evidence of this behavior and hold a manipulative teacher accountable.

Sexual Abuse in the Workplace

The Jackman Law Firm has successfully litigated many cases against employers for the sexual abuse they have inflicted on their employee. We offer free consultations and a safe space to discuss your case if you experienced lewd conduct while working under the scope of your employment. Contact us today to learn more.

You can certainly challenge the taking, but understand this is normally an uphill battle you will likely lose. Since eminent domain is widely accepted, it’s hard to win unless you can show that the government is not taking your property for a legitimate public use. If you refuse, the government will file an action in court and you will have to appear in court, if asked, and file the appropriate legal documents in opposition to those filed by the government. If you lose, and the judge allows the taking to go forward, then a new trial will be started that allows each to make the case for the land’s value.

Every lawyer is different, but The Jackman Law Firm charges a third of whatever money you recover from the government, provided that amount is greater than the original offer you received. We only get paid, in other words, unless you both win and your award is greater than what you would have received without help.

This is a procedure to attempt to settle your case. The special commissioner is made up of three landowners who have no interest or relationship to you or your case. A judge selects them. The commissioners will hear you and your attorney make your case for the value of your land, as well as the government’s side, and from there they will decide the value of your land.

You don’t have to accept the offer from the government. You can fight for more money, but be aware you are going to need certain experts to validate your position, including surveyors, appraisers, and real estate brokers. These experts can persuade the judge or jury the true value of your land.

Every case is unique and different. It can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. In general, cases where the government is involved take a long time, typically a year or so. If a private company is involved, the process will usually be much faster.

You have three years from the date of the accident.

Statistically, it is not likely since most cases settle out of court, but the best way to settle the case is to prepare as though you are going to trial.

It is important to understand whether your doctor can clearly separate which accident caused your injuries. The Jackman Law Firm can assist you in this.
