Sexual abuse is both a crime and a civil tort. As a sexual abuse survivor, you have the legal right to bring a civil suit against a defendant for committing sexual abuse or allowing or enabling someone else to commit this crime against you. A civil lawsuit could hold the offender liable and result in financial compensation for your losses. If the responsible party is an establishment or organization such as a school, church or daycare center, you might have grounds to join a mass tort with other plaintiffs.

What Is Sexual Abuse?
Sexual abuse is the crime of forcing sexual acts on a victim, typically over a period of time. A perpetrator might commit sexual abuse by force, threats, intimidation, coercion or deceit. Sexual abuse generally refers to a system of abuse over weeks, months or years. Sexual assault, on the other hand, is more often a single or infrequent act. Both are serious sex crimes that can have criminal and civil consequences for offenders.

Types of Sexual Abuse Mass Torts
A mass tort is a collective lawsuit involving multiple plaintiffs against one or a few shared defendants. It serves to make the legal process more efficient for the victims involved. Sexual abuse mass torts may arise after multiple reports of alleged sex crimes come out against a shared defendant, such as a company or institution. Institutional sexual abuse cases are particularly concerning because there are often multiple people who know the abuse has occurred and do not make any attempt to stop or report it. In some cases, those people may actively cover the abuse up. At Shapiro Legal Group, PLLC, we represent clients during many different types of sexual abuse mass torts nationwide.
