Schools should be safe places for children. No child should ever have to worry about being sexually abused by a teacher, coach, older child, or anybody else when they are at school. However, we know that this abuse takes place regardless. At DiMarco Araujo Montevideo, our Orange County school sexual abuse lawyers are ready to investigate your case. We are dedicated to helping victims of child sexual abuse and their families getting the closure that they deserve.

Discovering that your child has been sexually abused at school can be shocking, and you need to find an attorney you can trust both personally and professionally. The team at DiMarco Araujo Montevideo has a track record of success with these cases.

  • We have earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), the highest rating awarded to a law firm.

Why Do You Need an Attorney for This?

The unfortunate part of these cases is the fact that schools and school districts try to minimize any compensation they pay out to victims. They could even try to blame the victim for what happened. Your attorney will:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation into the incident(s), including working with law enforcement on the case.
  • Ensure that your child is evaluated by a trusted medical professional and that they receive the counseling they need.
  • Handle all communications in negotiations with other parties involved to ensure your child receives fair compensation and closure.

Who Perpetrates School Sexual Abuse?

Most people do not realize that sexual abuse is usually perpetrated by someone a child knows. In many cases, the abuser is an adult who has continual access to a child over long periods of time. Approximately 90% of all child sex abuse cases are perpetrated by someone that the child knows. Teachers, coaches, and other school staff could be in a position to groom your child for an eventual sexual assault.

School sexual abuse and assault often begins in the form of electronic communications such as inappropriate text messages, emails, or other communication. This is illegal and should be reported if discovered. When a teacher or other school staff member physically assaults or abuses a child, that is rape and they should be held accountable for their actions.

School sexual abuse is not relegated to adults and children. Often, the perpetrators are older, stronger children.
