Legal Options For Victims of Sex Abuse by School Coaches

Attorney Marc Lenahan helps hold sexual predators accountable for their crimes and directly represents sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. We've asked Marc to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of school coach sex abuse victims and their families:

In education and other fields that involve working with children, it's extremely important to make sure those children are safe. Teachers, coaches, and other school employees are trusted to work with kids, but not all school employees are trustworthy. Sadly, our education system has serious problems with students becoming victims of sexual abuse by employees.

A criminal investigation is crucial anytime a school coach is accused of sexual abuse. Additionally, it's important to ask if school officials did everything they could to prevent the abuse. Some of these tragedies only happen due to negligence by the school district. In these cases, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school district.
