Can I Sue If My Child Was Sexually Assaulted By a Firefighter?

Attorney Brian Kent is an experienced sexual abuse lawyer representing Pennsylvania victims in civil law. Brian recently shared his insight on the legal rights of those sexually assaulted by a firefighter.

"The positions of county officials, including fire chiefs, are highly respected by the community. They have a role in working towards the good of the county by offering protection and enforcement of the laws. Sadly, recent reports have been made of some officials taking advantage of their position of power and trust to exploit vulnerable victims."

"When victims report sexual assault by a firefighter or fire chief, a criminal investigation will follow, leading to charges. Many times victims and their families may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit against a negligent third party, such as the official's employer. If the department did not uphold its legal duty to prevent the abuse from occurring by doing background checks and installing cameras in the station, it could be deemed negligent. If the department failed to maintain security measures or was aware of misconduct, it could be held liable in a court of law. Sexual assault victims and their families can consult with an experienced attorney to best determine if they have grounds to file a civil lawsuit."
