Sexual abuse occurs when an adult engages in sexual conduct with a child. This may include fondling, inappropriate touching, forced oral sex, deviate sexual intercourse, rape, and other sexual activities. These kinds of claims also include situations where an adult sexually assaults a child or shows a child pornography or takes inappropriate photographs of a child. It also often involves inappropriate and sexual contact such as kissing, and digital penetration. Tragically, the perpetrators of these acts are often people who are well known to the victim such as a coach, teacher, or even friend of the family. The victim can file a lawsuit against the perpetrator and other responsible parties in order to recover compensation for the injuries resulting from sexual abuse.
Civil lawsuits against perpetrators of the abuse and the institutions employing them are complex. The injured party needs to prove that a coach has engaged in sexual abuse which resulted in injuries. Experienced trial lawyers are aware that the evidence is frequently restricted to the victim's convincing testimony. CT scans and X-rays cannot prove molestation. Moreover, awareness of the sexual abuse by the victim is frequently ignored or repressed until a victim reaches a certain age. Memories that resurface later can allow a victim of sexual exploitation to identify the abuser. In sexual abuse cases it is important to have an experienced and dedicated attorney on your side.
