The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has known for decades that pedophiles seek employment and volunteer opportunities with its organization specifically for the purpose of being close to young boys. This happens throughout Orange County, Los Angeles County and all of California.
The BSA has maintained internal files for many years documenting allegations of sexual abuse by scout leaders and other volunteers. It was only in recent years, however, that it began running criminal background checks on volunteers and creating policies making it mandatory to report suspected abuse to police.
Even with the introduction of these measures, the sexual abuse of scouts continues to be a significant problem. If your child has been sexually abused while participating in boy scouts, take action immediately and contact a reliable Los Angeles attorney. At The Cifarelli Law Firm, LLP, we represent clients throughout Los Angeles County, Orange County, all of California and across the country in these cases.
Confidential Legal Help For Families With A Lawsuit Against The Boy Scouts Of America
Scouts look up to their scoutmasters and other people involved with the BSA. Many put complete trust in these individuals and never think to question unethical requests or inappropriate behavior. We know how difficult and embarrassing it can be for young boys to stand up to their abusers, and many choose to live with the abuse rather than face the shame that often comes with being a victim.
When you choose our firm, your case will be handled in the most discreet manner possible. We will conduct a full investigation, gather the evidence to build a compelling case and do everything in our power to secure the best possible resolution. Our child abuse lawyers will take action against the BSA to seek compensation for the abuse you have suffered and work to create change that limits the chance of the victimization of future scouts.
