One in five children will be sexually assaulted before they turn age 18. Most commonly, the abuser is someone close to the child and a figure of authority. Our injury lawyers are here to help prevent these injustices from continuing in our society.
There is no better example, than the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which took place at Penn State, located in State College PA. The Catholic Church scandal is another common example of child sexual abuse. Both scandals resulted in multimillion-dollar settlements. Currently, the Michigan State University is involved with allegations that a former gmynastics physician sexually assaulted numerous student athletes.
The Trapani Law Firm has extensive knowledge and experience handling sexual abuse cases. Founding partner, Matthew Trapani participated in the representation of young victims in the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal and ESPN Radio recently interviewed The Trapani Law Firm regarding the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State.
When child sexual abuse is present, an employer (such as a school or university) can be held responsible for the actions of its employee or representative. Furthermore, improper security or failure to report suspected abuse can give rise to a sexual abuse lawsuit.
