Justice For Victims Sexually Abused By an Athletic Trainer

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau helps victims of sexual abuse within California. Bobby has years of experience filing lawsuits for sports sex abuse victims to seek financial compensation. He recently shared when victims sexually abused by an athletic trainer could file a lawsuit. 

"Recently, sports teams have seen an uptick in sexual abuse allegations, such as the high-profile cases involving the US Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar and the more recent US Women's Hockey League. While these allegations and reports help shed light on this problem, it is sad to see so many predators abusing their positions of trust and power to exploit players and children."

"Many times abuse in sports could have been prevented if the facility or team had not failed to uphold their duty of care. For example, a sports organization may be considered negligent if they did not conduct background checks on all coaches and staff. Additionally, they could be deemed liable if they ignored reports of inappropriate behavior. The sports team or facility can reduce the risk of preventable dangers by installing surveillance cameras. In cases involving safety negligence, sex abuse victims can learn more about their option to file a lawsuit by speaking with an experienced attorney."
