Victims of sexual abuse are entitled to compensation for the injuries they have sustained, as well as for the pain and suffering and future medical treatment that may be necessary. Unfortunately, a sex abuse victim is usually taken advantage of by someone whom they know and should be able to trust. This is all too often a teacher or clergy member of a church. This can also stem by being place in a dangerous situation from a government agency whom is supposed to ensure safety of the victim, rather than enable danger.
