Sexual Assault of a Minor

If the victim of a sexual assault is a child, the child's parents may be able to recover monetary damages on the child's behalf. A parent may be able to bring an action against the child's assailant or against a negligent establishment, such as a school, store, childcare service, church, security company, or medical institution. If the abuse occurred in a school or as part of a supervised activity intended for children, those responsible for hiring, training or supervising the attacker may be liable for the assault.

Parents have successfully brought actions on behalf of sexually abused children against school authorities, daycare centers, church authorities, youth camps, youth organizations, negligent relatives, and others who negligently failed to warn and protect the child from abuse or who allowed the abuse to take place through negligence. In cases where another minor committed the sexual abuse, the attacker's parents may be liable for negligence. If a child is assaulted in a home, compensation may be available under the homeowner's policy, and if the child is assaulted in a car, insurance may be available under either a homeowner's policy or an automobile policy. If your child has been sexually assaulted, it is important that you contact the compassionate legal team at Lee & Kaufman immediately so you do not lose the opportunity to file a claim.
