The Salvation Army Deserves to Be Held Liable
Although the Salvation Army does not have a notable history of abuse within the organization, especially compared to the traditional Catholic church, instances of abuse and assault have allegedly occurred through the years. This includes a case in New York, where a prominent lieutenant of the Army was accused of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter for several years in the 1990s.
Although the offender in question was terminated and the survivor received an apology from the Salvation Army, we believe that is not enough. By failing to report these actions to the proper authorities, we believe the Salvation Army has been negligent in handling this matter. They, along with any other parties who knew of the crimes but did not act to report them, deserve to be held equally accountable for the actions that occurred.
Do I Need a Lawyer for My Sexual Abuse Claim?
At Manly, Stewart & Finaldi, we understand this may be a trying time for you, and we want to help.

Additionally, an attorney has the resources to investigate your claim to the fullest extent. This means that they may be able to determine any other parties that may been liable for your damages at the time – any other officials, associates, or even the organization as a whole. Using this information, they can then pursue the maximum possible compensation possible – not for profits or greed, but as a punitive measure to act as a deterrent against sexual abuse on an institutional level.
