Our Child Sexual Abuse Lawyers are dedicated to helping victims of child sexual abuse obtain justice and redress against institutions that failed to protect them; including churches, summer camps, schools, faith-based organizations, and youth-recreation organizations such as Boy Scouts of America. Child sexual abuse causes psychological trauma that has lifelong effects. Victims of such transgressions frequently suffer from PTSD, depression, and anxiety long after the assault occurred. Although there is no way to undo a reprehensible act, victims can obtain compensation for the psychological and mental health treatments needed during the process of healing. Child sex abuse lawyers in our network have the resources to advocate on behalf of victims of child sexual abuse, whether they are still young children or are already in their adult years (depending on the statute of limitations laws that apply to the state in which the abuse occurred).
Child sexual abuse is when force, pressure, or manipulation is used against a child by an adult or teenager to obtain sexual satisfaction. There are several ways that child sexual abuse might manifest. These include forced rape, psychological stress or coercion, lewd exposure, and the proliferation of child pornography.
Forcible rape occurs without consent from the victim and involves physical force or threats thereof. In this type of case, the victim believes that resistance will not stop the rape. Forcible rape also includes attempts to perform the act. Psychological stress, or coercion, occurs when the victim is mentally controlled into performing sexual acts through intimidation.
This may range from threats of destruction of personal possessions to exposure of secrets that the victim has kept hidden. Indecent exposure is exposing one’s genitals to a child or showing pornographic materials to a child. Although these acts may not include physical contact, they can still leave lasting psychological effects on their victims. Child pornography is any portrayal of a young person engaging in sexually explicit behavior.
Victims of child pornography not only experience trauma due to sexual exposure, but they are also afraid knowing the media that they are appearing on may be unremovable online. Childhood sexual abuse is a painful, traumatic experience, which often leaves survivors with long-term, life-altering physical and/or psychological harm. The illnesses and disabilities that follow may require decades of medical care and treatment, and, most often, available treatments are not capable of providing survivors the health and peace needed to live normal lives.
Survivors of childhood sexual abuse frequently experience mental illnesses and disabilities of various degrees. Survivors also frequently experience physical symptoms, either developed later in life or caused more directly by abuse. Studies show Survivors are also more likely to be unhealthy overall. Survivors often spend a lifetime treating these conditions and illnesses, to the detriment of themselves and their families.
We believe in holding enabling institutions accountable for those costs and recovering the appropriate reimbursements to survivors. If you or someone you love is a survivor of child sexual abuse suffered in a church, summer camp, youth recreational program, school, faith-based organization, or another facility, we may be able to assist you to obtain compensation for the pain and the physical and mental problems that may have been caused by the abuse.

The Law May Limit The Time You Have To File A Child Sex AbuseClaim
Under the legal rule known as “the statute of limitations,” any claim stemming from child sex abuse must be filed within a specific period of time, otherwise, the injured child’s legal claims are barred, and their right to bring suit is lost for all time.
