Sexual Abuse Victims

Sexual Abuse And Molestation Victims

Sexual abuse affects far too many young people across Indiana. Trusted adults – teachers, coaches, pastors, priests, scout leaders and others – can destroy lives when they abuse their positions and molest or rape a child.

While the individual can be tried criminally for committing the sex crime, it is rare that a victim can hold that person financially accountable. On the other hand, a church, school or public organization might be liable for the perpetrator’s behavior if it failed to complete background checks or supervise those working with children. You need to speak with a lawyer who understands this complicated area of the law.

A monetary award can never fully compensate for the damage caused by sexual abuse; however, a lawsuit may force a church, school or community organizations to carefully screen and monitor those who work with children going forward. Compensation can also pay for expenses tied to long-term psychological medical care.
