HOW A LAWYER CAN HELP
Because children are too young to understand their rights and the legal system, adults must advocate for them and report suspicions of abuse to child protection and law enforcement agencies. These agencies then investigate the allegations. Professionals who work with children are required by law to report signs of sexual abuse and neglect.
In order to punish abusers and recover costs of sexual abuse counseling, as well as damages for pain and suffering, families of child abuse victims are encouraged to sue the abusers in civil court. The civil and criminal statutes of limitation in several states have been extended. Also, if the victim has blocked out memory of the abuse and related problems, the Delayed Discovery Rule for child sexual abuse suspends the statute of limitations.
Child sexual abuse attorneys at the law firm O’Connor Acciani & Levy Co., LPA have handled high profile sexual abuse cases like those involving members of the Catholic clergy, where reports of abuse were ignored or hidden by superiors in the church. Many of these cases involved adults who were abused as children, reporting the abuse decades after it happened.
