Legal Rights For Student Victims of Sexual Abuse by Coaches

Sex abuse victims lawyer Marc Lenahan helps victims and their families find answers and support in civil lawsuits. We've asked Marc to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of students sexually abused by school sports coaches:

Our nation's schools have widespread problems with predatory coaches, teachers, and other staff members sexually abusing students. While most school employees are trustworthy, there are also some sexual predators who seek out jobs in education, where they exploit the trust of their communities in order to victimize students.

School officials must take this crisis seriously and must do everything they can to ensure that their employees are trustworthy and that their students are safe. When a school sports coach is charged with sex crimes against a student, it's important to ask if school officials did enough to prevent these crimes. Some coach sex abuse cases only happen due to negligence by the school.

For example, a school could be considered negligent for ignoring previous complaints of inappropriate behavior by the coach. If negligence is found, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school district.

If you or your child has been sexually abused by a coach or another school staff member, you can learn more about your legal rights in a free consultation with one of our experienced school sex abuse victim lawyers.
