Church Liability Lawsuit

Orlando Church Liability Lawsuit Verdicts & Settlements

Church Liability Lawsuit Case – The Umansky Law Firm is currently representing a successful businessman who was molested over thirty years ago by a choir director at a church. The lawyers have filed suit against the church and are seeking over $2,000,000 to compensate our client for the emotional and psychological scars that he has had to live with and that he still endures to this day.

Unfortunately, the majority of victims of church sex abuse are children and teenagers who may take decades to report the abuse.  In these delicate cases, it may be possible to hold several parties responsible for enabling abuse.

Abusers may include:

  • Priests
  • Nuns
  • Sunday school teachers
  • Choir directors
  • Youth leaders
  • Volunteers
  • Deacons
  • Bishops
  • Reverends
  • Ministers
  • Rabbis
  • Pastors
  • Imams
  • Other church employees and authority figures

The liability can also lie with the perpetrator of the abuse and those who:

  • failed to conduct a reasonable background check on employees of the religious institution
  • failed to conduct a reasonable investigation into the abuse allegations
  • attempted to cover up the abuse
  • failed to report the abuse
  • failed to prevent the abuse
  • failed to train employees on policies regarding mandatory abuse reporting
  • failed to have policies in place regarding mandatory abuse reporting

The Umansky Law Firm seeks justice for victims of child abuse and molestation by religious figures, community leaders, and authority figures of any faith. Although no amount of money can ever make up for a lifetime impacted by abuse, victims may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical treatment
  • Psychological counseling
  • Pain and suffering
