Your Legal Rights as a Child Sexual Abuse Survivor or Parent in Illinois

When someone suffers child sexual abuse or assault in Illinois, they may have the right to file a claim against one or more parties. There is no statute of limitations, or deadline for filing, imposed on a civil sexual abuse claim in Illinois. You may be able to bring a case against an individual, entity or institution for the wrongdoing committed against you or a loved one regardless of how much time has passed.

A successful claim can deliver justice beyond what you can accomplish through the criminal justice system alone. Your family may be able to hold an institution, such as a school or church, accountable for failing to prevent the abuse rather than only the abuser. You may qualify for compensation for several of your economic and noneconomic losses, including medical bills, therapies, lost wages, pain and suffering, and psychological trauma.

Ryan J. Mahoney is a highly experienced trial lawyer who has represented many clients in child sexual abuse and assault cases throughout Illinois. He accepts all of the following types of cases:

  • Clergy sexual abuse
  • Daycare sexual abuse
  • Foster care sexual abuse
  • Juvenile detention center sexual abuse
  • Pediatrician sexual abuse
  • School sexual abuse
  • Sexual abuse by a friend or family member
  • Sexual bullying
