Attorneys Scott D. Lane and Raymond C. Steadmon negotiated a $1.5 million settlement on behalf of a teenager who was sexually abused at a Chicago public high school.
Accountability and Justice
The girl, who was fifteen years old at the time, was abused over a period of several months by a male varsity basketball coach. Our attorneys were able to settle the case with the Chicago Board of Education and obtain a sizeable award for this young woman.
Sexual abuse happens all too often, shattering the lives of the young victims and their families. At Lane & Lane, we believe that those who sexually abuse and victimize children should be held accountable for their actions. If your child has been the victim of sexual abuse, help is available.
