Institutional Cover-Ups

Sexual abuse is usually initiated by someone in a position of authority. This often occurs in an organizational setting — a school or club, for example — where there are clear lines between students and faculty, or management and employees, for example.

When abuse happens, it is expected that the abuser would try to cover up his or her actions. But it is unfathomable when an institution does so.

Institutional cover-ups of sexual assault are unacceptable. Both the abuser and the institution may be held accountable.

At Grewal Law PLLC, we work with individuals who have been sexually abused or assaulted by individuals who are members or employees of:

  • Schools
  • Universities
  • Churches
  • Companies
  • Country clubs
  • Police departments

Fighting Back

Victims may feel powerless when they know it is not safe to report the conduct — that the institution is involved in concealing the abuse. So what can be done?

First, it is advisable to report the conduct to law enforcement. Safety is the most important thing. Then, the victim should consider talking to an attorney who can explain his or her legal rights and options.

At Grewal Law PLLC, we have represented hundreds of sexual abuse victims. Those who have experienced sexual abuse by an employee or member of an institution should feel confident coming to us for help. When it seems impossible to go up against a powerful organization, we can level the playing field.

We work tirelessly on behalf of our clients, holding institutions accountable for not only the employee's actions, but also the organization's inaction. We pursue justice and seek maximum compensation on behalf of our clients.
