An experienced personal injury attorney specialized in injuries to children must keep in mind some unusually sensitive factors that influence how a case is handled. In general, children are more susceptible to injury. For one thing, they haven't developed the common sense necessary to detect and avoid dangerous situations. For another, their bodies are small and not yet fully developed, making it likely that consequences of an injury to a child will be more devastating than a similar injury would be for an adult. If your child has been the victim of a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, a defective product, or any type of abuse, you have a lot to worry about. You must be sure your child gets the care they need. Please call me as soon as possible so we can work together to bring the responsible party to justice and limit the possibility of the same thing happening to another child.
The psychological consequences of sexual abuse can last for years. Victims of sexual abuse often keep their experiences to themselves, which only increases their torment. If you've been the victim of sexual abuse — or if you suspect that you have been but are not completely sure — you need to talk to someone you can trust. Of course, trust is likely in short supply after going through something so frightening, and perhaps, confusing. Talking it over with the right person can ease the process of recovery. Calling a personal injury lawyer might not be your first thought, but we can make a difference. Nothing will change what happened, but financial compensation can help you pay for the counseling you need, and there's a lot to be said for bringing the abuser — whether a family member, a stranger, or a member of the clergy — to justice. When you're ready, I hope you'll call me and give me the opportunity to help you heal.
