Chicago Public Schools Sexual Abuse Claims

Experienced and Compassionate Attorneys for Families Dealing with Sexual Abuse in the Chicago Public School System

In Chicago’s public schools, sexual abuse should not happen. Sexual abuse is never okay; and, when predators target school children, their actions undermine everything that the public school system stands for. Safety. Security. Trust. These are what we expect when we send our children off to school. Finding out that your child has been sexually abused is devastating, and it demands legal action against the school system.

Q&A with Chicago Child Sexual Abuse
Lawyer Steven J. Malman

Can I sue the school system if my child was sexually assaulted by a teacher or student?

Yes. The Chicago public schools have a responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for school children, and all instances of sexual abuse justify legal action.

What if I am unsure if my child was sexually abused?

This is a very common concern. Children who have been sexually abused may be embarrassed or incapable of explaining what happened to their parents, and some school officials will go to extraordinary lengths to cover up instances of abuse. Our team can get to the bottom of what happened.

What if I cannot afford to pay a lawyer?

At Malman Law, all clients receive our Zero Fee Guarantee. It costs you nothing out of pocket to hire our legal team for your sexual abuse case against the Chicago public schools, and you pay nothing at all unless we win financial compensation.
