H&C_Sexual Abuse_hudson castle

Some of the most sensitive and complex cases Hudson & Castle handles deal with sexual abuse. It is very difficult for the abused and their loved ones to hold wrongful parties accountable because of shame or the fear they won’t be believed. Victims are often sexually abused by someone they know and trusted:

  • Professors, teacher, counselors, or other educational personnel
  • Psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, dentists, doctors, or nurses

The people and institutions we rely upon to care for our loved ones can also be held legally negligent for failing to protect them from abuse.

Attorneys Bruce Hudson and Ben Castle bring more than 30 years of experience in sexual abuse cases and work with a wide range of experts to prepare and present the strongest case. They have worked with victims across Delaware, including spearheading the case against former pediatrician, Dr. Earl Bradley, one of the most notorious pedophiles ever documented. Hudson & Castle represented several hundred of the 1200 children involved, resulting in a settlement of more than $123 million in damages.
