Child abuse, neglect and sexual assault can occur in the home, at school, daycare, foster care or a variety of other places. The abuser may be a parent, foster parent, teacher, mentor, a co-worker, neighbor or a total stranger. Child abuse has a devastating and life-long effect on the victims of the crime. Often, abuse victims will need physical and/or emotional care throughout adulthood. The law provides for criminal prosecution of the abuser, but what about the emotional and, often times, physically debilitating injuries that a survivor has sustained? If you or someone you know has been involved in a child abuse claim, contact our firm for an experienced child abuse lawyer in the Philadelphia area.
The law provides recourse for victims of child abuse. The abuser can be held financially responsible for the personal injury and economic losses caused by their criminal acts. Additionally, in some cases, victims can justifiably hold third parties responsible, such as schools, apartment managers, employers, daycares and foster care companies, whose negligence created or facilitated the conditions that enabled the abuser to commit the crime.
