Sexual Abuse Can Cause Lifelong Damage.
Sadly, sexual abuse is commonplace in youth organizations and sports leagues. Sexual predators use these organizations to get close to minors, often by volunteering as a coach or mentor. No amount of money can replace the innocence lost because of sexual abuse, but you may be able to file a sexual abuse lawsuit to recover financial compensation and bring the abuser to justice.

Who can file a sexual abuse lawsuit?
In the state of Virginia, only parents or legal guardians can file a sexual abuse lawsuit on behalf of a minor.
How much time do I have to file a wrongful death lawsuit?
Like most personal injury claims, family members have two years from the date of the victim’s abuse to file a lawsuit. This two year period is known as the “statute of limitations.”
What type of compensation could I be entitled to?
The compensation from a sexual abuse lawsuit is intended to cover a number of costs, including:
- Medical Expenses
- Punative Damages
- Other Economic Damages
- Noneconomic / Emotional Damages
