Compassionate Los Angeles Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault Attorneys Fight the Rights of Child Victims
Proven representation for child sexual abuse victims in Southern California
Child sexual abuse and molestation is one of the most incomprehensible crimes imaginable. Unfortunately, this tragedy happens much too frequently. As many as one in three girls and one in seven boys will be sexually abused at some point in their childhood, according to the National Sex Offender Public Registry. There is some justice when sexual predators are convicted and sent to prison, but it doesn’t erase the pain and traumas suffered by the victim and his or her family. It also does not explain how such an unspeakable tragedy could occur.
At Taylor & Ring, we are here to protect the interests of innocent children, and to fight for a better, safer future for them. If your child was sexually victimized by a perpetrator, contact a compassionate Los Angeles child sexual abuse and assault lawyer to seek the compensation your family deserves.
Relentlessly advocating for the rights of children
A civil lawsuit addresses both the impact on the victim and the culpability of the perpetrator. It also addresses those who could have prevented or stopped the abuse, which may include the perpetrator’s employer. Many parents of child victims do not realize that criminal prosecution is independent from any civil proceedings. In a criminal suit, the district attorney is chiefly concerned with prosecuting the sexual offender, and does little to protect the victim’s civil claims. In a civil suit, the court considers the victim’s pain and suffering to determine an appropriate level of compensation.
If your child has been abused by a trusted adult, it’s important to seek legal counsel from child sexual abuse lawyers as soon as possible. An experienced Los Angeles child sexual abuse law firm takes all necessary steps to ensure the civil lawsuit is filed in a timely manner, thus preserving the victim’s civil claims for money damages against those who caused the harm. The lawyer also takes action to preserve important evidence and locate critical witnesses.
Holding perpetrators responsible for their horrific actions
Parents of child sexual abuse victims often experience guilt for missing warning signs. At Taylor & Ring, we know that adults who prey on children often gain the trust of parents in order to groom their victims. We also understand that children who are abused commonly suffer long-term effects throughout their youth and into adulthood. A successful civil claim ultimately helps victims obtain justice and achieve the closure they deserve.
Employers, supervisors, co-workers and other adults may also hold some responsibility for these horrific acts. These individuals may have failed to conduct sufficient background checks, investigate complaints or report suspicious behavior to law enforcement. Our trustworthy Los Angeles child sexual abuse lawyers hold employers accountable for negligent hiring practices and failing to properly protect vulnerable children. This includes schools, youth organizations, churches, other religious institutions, sporting leagues, and other organizations where you expect children to be protected from predators.
