Lawsuits for Victims Sexually Abused By a Wrestling Coach

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents school sex abuse victims and their families in private civil lawsuits. We recently spoke with Aaron about the legal options available to victims sexually abused by a wrestling coach, including their right to file a lawsuit.

"Schools are responsible for ensuring their students are safe from preventable dangers, including sexual predators. This safety commitment carries on through extracurricular activities, including athletic functions. However, we often hear reports of predators gaining employment in the athletic department. These positions of trust and power allow them to work closely with children. Schools and their administration have a hefty responsibility to ensure the coaches and staff have been fully vetted with background checks to reduce this risk. Additionally, any reports of misconduct should be forwarded to the authorities and investigated. Failure to provide sufficient safety measures can result in the school being held liable for abuse."

"When a coach is charged with sexual abuse, officials should investigate both the coach and the school. It is necessary to determine if the abuse could have been prevented if not for the school's negligence. In many security negligence cases, the victim and their family may have grounds for a lawsuit. Victims should consult with an experienced school sex abuse lawyer to fully understand their legal options for justice."
