Coach Sexual Abuse
When children participate in sports, families entrust coaches with their child’s physical and mental well-being. If a coach violates that trust by sexually abusing a child, they should be brought to justice. If a school or athletic program fails to provide proper oversight or actively shields a coach from investigation, they too should be held accountable.
In many sexual abuse cases, there are statutes of limitations that limit the window of time available to take action. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse it’s important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

Recently, we represented two former students who were groomed and sexually abused for years by their soccer coach, David Cross, while the Black Hills Football Club stood idly by. Our tenacious attorneys took on the case and obtained a $3.75 million settlement on their behalf.
