When you enroll your son in the Boy Scouts, the last thing you expect is for your son to be sexually abused. Unfortunately, there have been thousands of sexual abuse cases reported in the Boy Scouts across the US.
The Boy Scouts of America is an organization that has a legal responsibility to keep your son reasonably safe from harm, which includes protecting your child from being sexually abused by a Scout Master or any other adult volunteer.
If your son was a victim of child sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts, you have the legal right to hold the perpetrator responsible. The Boy Scouts, as a legal entity, may be responsible for the sexual victimization of your child. In Connecticut, there is no statute of limitations for reporting child abuse if the victim was below the age of 18 regardless of how many years have elapsed between the incident and the report.
If you wish to file a Boy Scouts child sexual abuse case, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Boy Scouts child sexual abuse lawyer to help you understand your legal rights and identify the legally responsible parties. You may be entitled to financial compensation for the mental anguish, pain and suffering, and physical injury your child has suffered or may continue to suffer in the future.
