This video features Nancy J. Winkler, a Medical Malpractice attorney based in Pennsylvania.
How could a personal injury attorney help a victim of sexual abuse or assault? We ask Philadelphia attorney Nancy Winkler for this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
If you have suffered from either physical or sexual abuse as a result of someone's conduct while you were at a facility like The Deveraux School, and you contact a lawyer, a legal action can be brought on your behalf; a civil action. The civil action is for money damages to compensate you in some way for all of the suffering that you've had, all of the abuse that you've sustained over the course of years. The only way that we can try and affect justice is to represent these clients, to bring an action for money damages, and hopefully to effectuate change so that this doesn't happen to other people from the same type of conduct.
