What You Need to Know

Child sexual abuse is one of the greatest wrongs a person can perpetrate on another and there is no justification for any individual to sexually abuse a child. Those who have been victimized by child sexual abuse may face serious physical harm and emotional trauma in childhood at the time of the abuse. Unfortunately, the lasting consequences of child sexual abuse often don’t just go away with age or time, either, and many adults who were abuse victims continue to feel the impact of their abuse into adulthood. Unfortunately, in some cases, the very organizations designed to protect children – like schools, youth groups, churches, or clubs – are the ones who put them in the path of an abuser and make abuse possible. These organizations often go unpunished for negligently allowing the abuse or looking the other way. Some victims decide to file a civil lawsuit against the responsible organization with the help of a West Palm Beach child sexual abuse attorney. A civil lawsuit is a kind of personal injury claim that is intended to allow the abuse victim to recover financial compensation, which can pay for important things like therapy and recovery services after the abuse.

Child sexual abuse civil lawsuits do not send an organization to jail like criminal cases do. Civil lawsuits are about financial compensation – making the defendant pay to “make the victim whole.” Of course, there is no amount of money that can ever undo the damage that the abuse caused. Still, collecting financial compensation from the responsible party can be beneficial for many abuse victims because:

  • The compensation can help the victim deal with any financial ramifications of the abuse, such as the need for therapy.
  • The child sexual abuse case can be the only way to punish an organization that was complicit in the abuse.
  • The civil lawsuit can help the victim force the responsible organization to stand up and take responsibility.

The child sexual abuse civil lawsuit can be a way to get more closure and to get a clear declaration that the organization is liable for the harm caused. These are just some of the reasons why many people bring child sexual abuse civil lawsuits against an organization that was in some way responsible for the abuse. Ultimately, you will need to decide if you wish to bring such a case in an attempt to make the defendant pay monetary compensation. A West Palm Beach child sexual abuse lawyer can help you understand whether you have enough evidence to make a strong case.
