Legal Recourse For YMCA Sex Abuse Survivors

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank is a sex abuse victim lawyer who has helped victims and families find justice through civil lawsuits. Aaron has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of those who have been sexually abused in the YMCA and other youth organizations:

Youth organizations like the YMCA are often targeted by sexual predators. These predators place themselves in positions of trust in these organizations and then exploit that trust in order to commit horrible crimes against children. There have been numerous reported cases of YMCA employees and volunteers sexually abusing children within the organization.

These organizations must take the threat of sexual abuse seriously and preventative measures must be taken in order to prevent such abuse. When a child is sexually abused by a YMCA employee, it’s important that the police investigate the allegations and also that the organization is investigated for possible negligence.

In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit. For example, a Pennsylvania mother filed a lawsuit against the YMCA of York which alleged that staff members failed to protect her son from being sexually abused by an older boy with a prior history of child sex abuse.

If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse in the YMCA or another youth organization, you can learn more about your family’s legal options in a free consultation with one of our dedicated sex abuse victims lawyers.
