At The Senators Firm, our summer camp sexual abuse lawyers are committed to helping victims of camp sexual abuse and assault.
We can represent clients who were abused in any type of camp, including:

Camp sexual abuse can involve any type of sexual touching involving a minor, as well as sexual activity at camp, child molestation, child pornography, rape or statutory rape, and sodomy or penetration. It can be committed by an adult or adolescent at the camp. If you have reason to suspect sexual abuse at a camp in Orange County, take action immediately. Report it to camp administrators and the police. Then, contact us to discuss a possible civil lawsuit.
Compensation Available for Victims of Orange County Camp Sexual Abuse
Filing a civil claim for camp sexual abuse can allow a survivor and his or her family to obtain justice for this terrible wrongdoing. In addition to facing criminal charges, a perpetrator or sexual predator could be held civilly liable for the victim’s damages with a lawsuit. This means the victim could receive financial compensation for losses such as:
- Medical costs and treatments (present and future)
- All financial losses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional harm
- Mental or psychological damage
- Lost quality or enjoyment of life
- The family’s legal fees and court costs
To recover compensation, your lawyer must prove liability. A summer camp or sports camp could be held liable if it was negligent (careless) in protecting its campers. This includes failing to properly background-check camp counselors, training staff members in how to prevent and detect sexual abuse, and responding appropriately to sexual misconduct allegations. An Orange County summer camp sexual abuse attorney can determine who is liable and collect evidence to help you prove a claim.
