Types of Child Sexual Abuse Cases We Represent

Unfortunately, sexual abuse can happen anywhere. We look to places such as schools and churches as a safe place for our children and for ourselves, but predators can be in these places and take advantage. Shame, fear, and guilt can all lead to someone not stepping forward about their assault. For too long survivors have been silenced and we're here to help you speak out. Some of the many types of sexual assault cases we represent include:

Boy Scouts Of America Sexual Abuse

The Boy Scouts was developed to provide a safe environment to young men who needed guidance and development. Over the years, stories of assault have arisen with a report of over 7,800 perpetrators and over 12,000 children victims. The Boy Scouts often engage in activities that are away from home, such as camping, creating an opportunity for the offender to commit the crime.

Sex Assault by Coaches

Coaches have a position of power over the athletes and often have unsupervised lessons where misconduct can occur. In recent years gymnastics sexual abuse has been at the forefront, but the assault can happen in any sport including swimming sexual abuse, diving sex assault, and wrestling sexual molestation. Often the coach will use their influence to try to control the athlete, try to be a surrogate parent, act differently around them, and push for private lessons to advance the athlete more.

Sexual Abuse by the Clergy

The Catholic Church and the Clergy have long hidden sexual assault but more people are sharing their experiences and breaking down the walls. In Missouri in 2019, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese confirmed 22 cases of past sexual misconduct. The clergy members, priests, or other members of the church are seen as leaders and we are taught to trust them. Unfortunately, this trust can be taken advantage of and the misconduct is covered up.

Nursing Home Sexual Assault

Our elders deserve the care they are seeking when moving into an assisted living or nursing home. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is often reported, with many more cases going unreported. The assault can be from an employee, another resident, or even a visitor to the building. Some victims are unable or unwilling to talk about the abuse. Some common signs include unsanitary living conditions, unexplained bruises, and complaints.

FAQs For Sexual Harassment and Assault Victims

We understand you have questions about sexual assault and wish to find legal advice for your case. Our lead attorney, Ryan Frazier, answers some of the most common questions we receive. If you have other questions or wish to speak with a lawyer about your case, call our law firm today for a free consultation.

What Is The Difference Between a Civil and Criminal Sexual Abuse Case?

A civil court system is designed to help the survivor of sex assault. The purpose of these lawsuits is to obtain compensation for damages incurred.

A criminal court is all about the crimes committed by the abuser. The purpose is to impose fines or prison sentences.

Legal counsel will be able to provide more information to clients as each chase is different.

What Are Long Term Effects of Sexual Abuse

The pain and suffering from sexual abuse can have long-term effects on survivors. A few of the long term effects include:

  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Alcoholism
  • Substance abuse
  • Behavioral issues
  • Localized pain
  • Scarring
  • and more

Our attorneys know that receiving compensation does not heal the emotional scars from rape, harassment, or sexual abuse. But, by coming forward and filing a lawsuit with an attorney, you can help other victims come forward about their trauma and you can help protect future victims from experiencing the same serious crimes you endured.

What Is the Statute of Limitations?

The statute of limitations is different in every state. In Springfield and the state of Missouri, the statute of limitations for sexual abuse has been removed in the criminal court system.

A minor has 10 years after they turn 21 to file a lawsuit against an individual, or 5 years to hold a third party responsible. To learn more about your specific case, speak directly with an attorney today. Because of time limits, it is important to come forward and report the crime. The earlier the crime is reported, the earlier legal action can be taken.
