When Your Coach Breaches Your Trust

Sports are often an excellent way to instill the values of teamwork and hard work in athletes. Coaches who oversee and train athletes typically have the team’s respect and trust. However, some coaches abuse their position and sexually assault their athletes.

This type of abuse can result in serious psychological and emotional damages that can impact the victim’s entire life. We believe in fighting for justice for victims of sexual assault by coaches. We are committed to seeking justice and holding them accountable. If you or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse by a coach, we are here for you in Denver.

Compensation To Help You Move Forward

Civil lawsuits are filed to compensate victims for the harm they suffered. In sexual abuse cases involving coaches, there can be more than one responsible party to file against. The coach who abused the athlete is naturally included. Still, you can also file against the parties who had a duty or obligation to protect the athlete and failed. These parties can include institutions such as the school, governing bodies or individuals who knew about the abuse and did not take action, such as other coaches.

No amount of money can erase your trauma, but financial compensation can still be helpful. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we can pursue different types of damages, such as economic, noneconomic and punitive damages, to help you get back on your feet. Economic damages include compensation for medical and mental health care, relocation expenses, and missed opportunities or loss of employment that the victim experienced due to the abuse. Noneconomic damages compensate victims for intangible damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Punitive damages are a form of punishment for the abuser, making them pay large amounts of money as a penalty.
