Molestation Lawsuits


Molestation is the crime of sexual acts with children up to the age of 18.  Victims of molestation may sue in civil court the person who committed the abuse against them to recover damages for their injuries, including medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of earning capacity.  While these cases are difficult to litigate because of the emotional toll on the victim, damages awarded in molestation cases often are substantial.
