Filing Lawsuits for Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Martial Arts Instructor

Attorney contributor Brian Kent handles cases involving sexual assault. He fights for justice for the victims by filing civil lawsuits that often include monetary settlements. Brian recently discussed legal options available to victims sexually abused by martial arts instructors.

"In fields that involve working with kids such as martial arts and many others, the safety of those kids is important. While most martial arts instructors are honorable and trustworthy, a few reports have surfaced of martial arts instructors sexually abusing their students. Sporting facilities have a legal duty to do all they can to avoid the chance of sexual predators gaining employment within these fields. By conducting background checks, installing video surveillance cameras, and fully investigating any reports of misconduct, sporting facilities can reduce the risk of abuse by martial arts instructors. However, when these facilities fail to uphold their responsibility, they can be considered negligent."

"Victims sexually assaulted by martial arts instructors have legal options to seek justice. Reporting the abuse to law enforcement will result in an investigation, charges, and a possible conviction. Apart from this, victims and their families may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit that may result in them recovering compensation. Victims and their families should consult with an experienced sexual assault attorney to further explore their legal options."
