Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Abuse
Here is some legal commentary on the legal rights of sexual abuse victims from sexual abuse attorney, Brian Kent:
When someone who is entrusted to look after kids turns out to be a sexual predator, it’s important for the victim’s family to be aware of their legal rights. Surviving a sexual assault is an extremely traumatic experience, both for the victim and for their family and loved ones as well. In some cases, the perpetrator should have never been trusted to work with children.
If a company was negligent in failing to protect its customers from a sexual predator, that company can be held liable for damages if the victim’s family decides to file a lawsuit. For example, a dance studio that hired a sex offender who eventually sexually abused students at the studio would likely be considered negligent and held liable for damages.
There are many forms of negligence, and determining if your family has grounds for a lawsuit will require an overview of your case by an experienced sexual abuse victims lawyer.
