Can I sue my grandfather for child abuse in Illinois? 1 Answers as of January 25, 2011

I am only 16 years old and I was wondering if I can sue my grandfather for child abuse. I was abused when I was around 3-10 years old. I was also wondering if I need proof of him abusing me. I was very young and only remember several parts. My mom knows he abused me and never did anything about it so I also wondering if I can sue my mother too for never taking action. When my mom was she was abused by him too. He also abused her sisters when they were young too. He got his daughter pregnant by him too. Is this enough evidence for me to sue my grandfather?

Yes you can. The case might be difficult prove but that does not mean you cannot sue.
