Sexual Abuse Is Emotionally Devastating to the Victim
Child molestation or sexual abuse robs children of their innocence. The emotional scars from sexual abuse can last a lifetime. The criminal court system exists to punish perpetrators of child sex abuse. But, to recover financial compensation, victims and their families must file lawsuits in civil court.
No amount of financial compensation can ever truly right this wrong. However, money damages can help victims of sexual assault and abuse put their lives back together, or at least pay for counseling. Because sexual predators tend to abuse more than one victim, pursuing a civil lawsuit can help prevent the person who did the harm from doing the same to another child.
Large verdicts and settlements can also encourage individuals and organizations to be more careful with the lives of our children.
At The Reeves Law Group we understand how difficult it can be for victims to come forward and pursue legal action against those who molested, raped, or abused them. Our attorneys are skilled not only in the law, but in handling these emotional issues as delicately as possible. Especially where children are concerned, we take steps to protect our clients from having to explain their experiences repeatedly to different individuals. We will handle your case with sensitivity to the emotional as well as the legal issues at hand.
To learn more about how we can be of assistance to victims of child molestation and sexual abuse, please contact The Reeves Law Group today for a free and confidential consultation. Call us at (800) 644-8000.
We represent clients on a contingency basis. That means that we pay all of the up-front costs and you do not pay attorney's fees, unless and until we win financial compensation on your behalf. The contingency fee arrangement puts justice within financial reach of the average citizen. Few individuals could afford legal representation in a sexual abuse injury claim if they had to pay an attorney by the hour. The Reeves Law Group has the resources that allow us to pursue justice on your behalf.
