There have been problems with child molesters in the Boy Scouts of America for decades involving both adult volunteers and scoutmasters. The Lassen Law Firm, Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Lawyers, represents the VICTIMS of sexual abuse throughout Pennsylvania and the nation with the utmost confidentiality and compassion. Our clients have found out that their trust and confidence is not misplaced when they retain our firm.
The Boy Scouts of America used to have an untarnished public image, however, over the last 20 years, the stark realities of the sexual abuse of young boys have come to light. The Boy Scouts of America has attracted countless child molesters because the secluded nature of the overnight camping trips has given these child predators the means, method, and opportunity to commit these heinous crimes under cover of darkness.
The Boy Scouts of America has put some procedures in place in an attempt to curtail the number of sexual predators such as:
Prohibiting skinny dipping
Prohibiting revealing bathing suits
Mandatory reporting of child sexual abuse
Prohibiting one-on-one contact between leader and boy
Separate tents for leader and boy
Requiring two adults on all camping trips
Prohibiting camera use in the showers and restrooms
The reality is that the sexual abuse will continue. When boys have been the victim of abuse by their scout leader, they may feel helpless. It is hard enough for victims to deal with their physical symptoms and recovery, let alone the financial difficulties that are often associated with most Boy Scouts of America sexual abuse injuries. If you or your child has been a victim of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America, the last thing you should have to worry about is your financial security.

The statute of limitations for child abuse cases in PA is twelve years from the age of majority (age 18) thus you are supposed to file before age thirty. However, there are plenty of ways to get around the statute of limitations problem, thus, you can still get compensation if you have the right lawyer.
