Sexual Abuse of Children by Teachers/Faculty/Administrators

Children are among the most vulnerable members of our society.  While all sexual abuse is abhorrent, it is particularly despicable when the abuse is committed by the persons we entrust to protect and educate our children.  Victims of sexual abuse often suffer devastating and long lasting damages that require extensive psychological treatment.

Parents of minor children that have been sexually abused by their school teachers can bring a lawsuit on behalf of their child, not only against the perpetrator, but against the school district for their own negligence in hiring/retention/supervision.  The attorneys at Greer & Rineer are experienced in this complicated are of law and will vigorously advocate on your child’s behalf.  We firmly believe that the school district should be held responsible for their failure to protect the children they are entrusted to keep safe.

Sexual Abuse of Elderly/Dependent in Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Facility

Like children, the elderly are also extremely vulnerable members of our society.  As such, the elderly are often sexually abused while in the care of a nursing home/skilled nursing facility.  This abuse often goes unreported and sadly, victims often choose not to pursue civil action.  Elderly victims of sexual abuse desperately need an advocate to fight for their rights.  The experienced attorneys at Greer & Rineer will fight to hold the responsible parties liable and will seek all remedies available under the law.

Elder Abuse

In addition to sexual abuse, there are multiple types of elder abuse.  These include, physical abuse, neglect, financial abuse, abandonment, isolation and abduction.  As former medical malpractice attorneys, previously defending these types of cases, the attorneys at Greer & Rineer have a unique experience and perspective in now litigating and advocating on behalf of their elderly victim clients.
