Experienced Legal Guidance for Sexual Abuse Victims
Some studies show that only 6-12% of all child molestation is ever reported. We represent victims of child molestation and sexual abuse in Illinois by filing lawsuits to hold perpetrators accountable. Oftentimes the civil justice system is the only remedy.
Although money cannot replace lost innocence and make up for a horrible ordeal experienced by victims and their families, some form of compensation can help to pay for treatment needed and can also make the perpetrator accountable. A victim of sexual abuse deserves the best treatment available and future financial security. Sexual abuse of children can result in post-traumatic stress disorder and other traumatic injuries that can have permanent psychological and emotional scars. Most often, the actual perpetrator is a trusted individual such as a coach, a teacher, a family friend, relative, daycare provider or even a step parent.
The criminal justice system does play an important role in punishing molesters, but the civil system seeks redress and compensation for the injured party.
If you or your child is a victim of sexual abuse or molestation we can help. Our experience with post-traumatic stress and brain injuries has allowed us to understand the complexities of such injuries associated with sexual abuse in children and disabled victims.
