St. Petersburg Priest Abuse Law Firm Aids Victims of Sexual Abuse
Compassionate attorney gives Florida clients a voice against their abusers
Dyril L. Flanagan, P.A. in St. Petersburg, Florida, represents people who have suffered harm due to sexual abuse perpetrated by a priest or other clergy member. Clergy abuse is well-documented in the legal record and the media, and while various churches have paid out millions in settlements in recent years to child victims of sexual abuse, there are many who are still looking to pursue justice. Abuse victims have the right to speak out and seek compensation. I am attorney Dyril Flanagan, and I can be the voice you need to help hold abusive parties accountable to the extent allowed under the law.
Committed litigator pursues compensation for victims of clergy sex abuse
Children raised in religious households are often taught to revere and respect those who dedicate their lives to their faith, but when a religious leader abuses, assaults or molests a child, it can have a disastrous impact on the course of that child’s life.
If a clergy member assaulted you or your child, I will work to secure appropriate compensation from their abuser and the institution that failed to protect you or your child. You may be entitled to collect damages related to any medical or mental health counseling expenses, income you lost because of the effects of your abuse and the pain and suffering you endured. The statutes of limitations for sexual abuse lawsuits in Florida vary depending on the circumstances of your situation. For instance, even if you were assaulted as a child, it may take years or even decades for you to realize all of the consequences resulting from the abuse. The statute of limitations allows you to file a claim within four years of discovering the effects of the abuse you suffered. If you’ve been the victim of clergy sexual abuse, my office can help outline your options.
