Legal Representation for USA Swimming Sex Abuse

Many allegations of molestation and sexual abuse have been leveled at USA Swimming coaches. Coaches have been accused of abusing young girls and boys for decades, and USA Swimming has also been accused of protecting sexual predators and and failing to investigate complaints. This type of organizational behavior makes children more vulnerable to pedophiles and exposes the organization to civil liability.

For its role in perpetuating an environment of sexual abuse directed towards children, USA Swimming was sued by a number of victims. In 2010, Attorney Robert Allard brought a civil suit against USA Swimming on behalf of a teenage girl who was molested by a swimming coach. Because complaints made against the coach were not investigated and the coach was not punished, USA Swimming shared legal responsibility for the injuries to the victim.

Since litigating the USA Swimming case, Mr. Allard has become a tireless advocate for child sexual abuse victims. He has proposed state legislation preventing organizations from covering up complaints of sex abuse and failing to investigate. He is dedicated to helping victims of sex crimes and helping them to recover maximum financial compensation for their injuries, pain, and suffering.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
