When should I obtain a lawyer after discovering my child was sexually abused?

Upon learning that your child was sexually abused, you should report the abuse to law enforcement. In addition to filing criminal charges against the perpetrator, you can file a civil suit against the abuser in order to secure damages for your child’s physical and/or emotional injuries.

An experienced lawyer can help you file a civil suit against the abuser, and will likely anticipate the types of questions your child may face from the perpetrator’s attorney. Your child is more likely to prevail in the lawsuit represented by a skilled attorney.
