Tort Suits and Financial Compensation for Domestic Violence Survivors in California
Date training recorded: Jan 5, 2017
Trainer(s): Amira Samuel, Sonya Passi
Survivors of domestic violence are eligible to pursue tort claims against their abusers, which could result in life-changing compensatory and punitive awards. However, survivors often have very little information about this option and no legal representation for these cases. As a result, they do not pursue these claims, are saddled with the financial burden of the abuse and struggle to rebuild safe lives for themselves and their children. FreeFrom is on a mission to change this. We hold abusers financially accountable for the abuse they have perpetrated and help survivors obtain the relief they are entitled to. Our webinar will provide an overview of the tort of domestic violence in California, including case law interpreting the tort, an outline of the relief available under statute, and more information on how we can help your clients.
