We also have unparalleled experience in very specific areas of abuse law, recovering damages on behalf of some of the most vulnerable people in our society, as profiled below.
Sexual Abuse Litigation – Hagens Berman has represented a wide spectrum of individuals who have been the victims of sexual abuse, including children and developmentally disabled adults. We treat each case individually, with compassion and attention to detail and have the expertise, resources and track record to stand up to the toughest opponents. In the area of sexual abuse, our attorneys have obtained record-breaking verdicts, including the largest personal injury verdict ever upheld by an appellate court in the State of Washington.
Nursing Home Negligence – Nursing home negligence is a growing problem throughout the nation. As our population ages, reports of elder abuse and nursing home negligence continue to rise. Today, elder abuse is one of the most rapidly escalating social problems in our society. Hagens Berman is uniquely qualified to represent the victims of elder abuse and nursing home negligence. Our attorneys have secured record-breaking settlements in this area of the law and have committed to holding nursing homes accountable.
Social Work Negligence – Social workers play a critical role in the daily lives of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. Social workers, assigned to protect children, the developmentally disabled and elderly adults, are responsible for critical aspects of the lives of tens of thousands of citizens who are unable to protect themselves. Many social workers do a fine job. Tragically, many do not. The results are often catastrophic when a social worker fails to monitor and protect his or her vulnerable client. All too often, the failure to protect a child or disabled citizen leads to injury or sexual victimization by predators. With over $40 million in recoveries on behalf of vulnerable citizens who were neglected by social workers, Hagens Berman is the most experienced, successful and knowledgeable group of attorneys in this dynamic area of the law.
