Sexual Assault in Gymnastics

Gymnastics Sexual Abuse Attorneys

gymnast on a beam | Gymnastics Sexual Abuse AttorneysWhen the Larry Nassar scandal broke, it literally rocked the gymnastics world to the core. Three former elite American gymnasts were among the staggering 260 girls and women who claimed they had suffered sexual abuse at the hands of team doctor Larry Nassar. Nassar has since been sentenced to a minimum 140 years in prison after being tried in federal court and two Michigan courts.

USOC Vows to Make Changes

All 21 USA Gymnastics board members were forced to resign as the USOC vowed to make changes which would protect gymnasts and other athletes.  Olympic champion McKayla Maroney is one of the many gymnasts who was sexually abused by Nassar. At a luncheon for the NY Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Maroney said she never should have met Nassar, stating he was a “monster.”

Olympic Gymnasts Come Forward with Allegations of Sexual Assault

Maroney was the first of her Olympic Gold teammates to reveal she was abused by Nassar. Since her reveal, Gabrielle Douglas, Jordyn Wieberhave and Aly Raisman have also come forward to say they were abused by Nassar. Nassar was allowed by USA Gymnastics to accompany the gymnastics team to Olympic competitions, World Championships, and training sessions held in Houston, TX, at the Karolyi Ranch.

Maroney submitted a written victim impact statement at Nassar’s sentencing hearing, while Raisman and Wieber appeared in person. Training sessions are no longer held at the Karolyi Ranch, however Raisman, Maroney and their teammates say the “culture” of ignoring complaints of sexual abuse needs to be changed.

Maroney called out USA Gymnastics, Michigan State University and the U.S. Olympic Committee, all for failing to take any responsibility for Nassar’s abuse. Maroney claims the #MeToo movement gave her the courage to come forward about Nassar’s sexual abuse. Maroney also noted that it was her “duty” to come forward so future gymnasts would not have to deal with the repercussions of sexual abuse.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
