Government To Pay $7 Million To Resolve Leavenworth Sexual Abuse Cases
The federal government has agreed to pay nearly $7 million to settle eight cases stemming from the sexual abuse of veterans by a former physician assistant at the VA Hospital in Leavenworth, Kansas.
The settlement comes after three veterans took their cases to trial last year, resulting in hefty damage awards against the government.
Altogether, the government will have paid out nearly $17 million in claims over the scandal.
TriMark Legal Funding provides non-recourse pre-settlement and post-settlement sexual abuse lawsuit funding and cash advances on Catholic church sexual abuse cases for injured plaintiffs nationwide.
