Lawsuits For Gymnastics Sex Abuse Victims

Bobby Thompson is a frequent contributor to the Legal Herald and he has represented many sexual abuse victims. Bobby offered the comments below on the legal rights of sexual abuse by gymnastics coaches.

“Gymnasts in the United States have become frequent victims of sexual abuse, extending all the way up to the professional ranks. There have been several cases against coaches, doctors, and other staff members for sexual abuse, most notably the recent case against Larry Nassar. Victims of sexual abuse in gymnastics have a right to sue their abuser, as well as the organization if negligence is found. For example if a gymnastics studio knew about sexual abuse but chose not to act then they can be found to be liable. This gives the victim the option to file a lawsuit against the organization for its negligent behavior.”
