Is the Church Liable if I Was Sexually Assaulted?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced lawyer for sexual abuse in the state of California. He represents victims of sexual abuse at church in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Bobby shared his insights on the legal rights of victims of sexual abuse at church.

"It is the legal obligation of a church and its administration to protect its congregation. Unfortunately, sexual predators can exploit victims by gaining positions of trust and power within a church to commit sexual abuse. Many times this abuse could have been prevented by the church with security measures, such as background checks. Failure to maintain preventable abuse can result in the church being held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"Religious organizations and churches should do their best to offer safety to their members as they try to prevent sexual abuse from occurring within the congregation. For example, if the church officials ignored previous sexual misconduct complaints filed against active clergy members, the church can be considered negligent. In cases of neglect like this, the victim of sexual abuse and their families may have the legal right to pursue a civil lawsuit against the church. It is highly recommended that the victims and their families explore all their rights with an experienced lawyer for sexual abuse in the church."
