Seeking Justice For Victims Of Child Sexual Abuse

Child sexual abuse is a criminal offense, punishable by jail time, fines and more. However, abuse victims may be unaware that they can seek additional justice by filing a civil case.

At Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., our personal injury lawyers have assisted the vulnerable across New York City for more than 40 years. Our aggressive representation focuses on getting results for you. Whether you suffered abuse as a child or are the parent of a child who suffered, we provide the thorough, dedicated guidance you need.

Why Pursue A Civil Case?

After reporting the offense to the police and enduring the criminal prosecution of the aggressor, you may be hesitant to pursue further legal action. However, benefits to filing a civil case include:

  • Recovering compensation — We pursue damages for your physical and emotional recovery efforts, including for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
  • Seeking further justice — Whether the aggressor was convicted, victims can still file a civil case to pursue justice that allows them to move forward.
  • Holding your aggressors accountable — A civil case can pursue accountability for the abusers beyond the potential penalties issued in the criminal justice system.

Ultimately, a civil case allows you the opportunity to fight back against the trauma you suffered by seeking compensation against your aggressor and other liable third parties.

How We Work With Victims

Sexual abuse cases may go to court but can also reach settlements. Our attorneys work together with our clients and are sensitive to the emotions involved. We also prioritize maintaining your privacy. However, we are aggressive and relentless in our approach to hold your abusers accountable.

Targets of sexual abuse claims include both individuals and institutions such as churches, schools, care facilities, athletic programs and more. Such institutions may have helped, harbored or protected the abuser. We thoroughly investigate your claim to determine who was involved or allowed such abuse. Once we determine this, we take appropriate action to pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve.
