Child Molestation Lawyers
Serving Child Molestation Victims Nationwide
Over the last decade, there have been multitudinous lawsuits filed against
a number of individuals, organizations and institutions, including churches,
clergy, coaches, school teachers, adoptive parents, foster parents and
a number of other adults that hold positions of authority, and used that
authority to molest innocent children. The legal troubles that the Catholic
Church is currently engaging has become common knowledge; however, the
epidemic of child molestation does not stop with the universal church.
There are a number of organizations that are currently facing similar
legal problems because of the negligence that they exhibited as far as
their responsibility to provide a safe environment for the children that
were, somehow entrusted to their care.
When a child is molested, it can be an overwhelming experience, and often
parents and loved ones are not sure of the best approach to dealing with
the situation. This is why it is so important to seek the legal counsel
of an attorney who has the expertise and experience to handle a child
molestation case. If your child is a victim of child sexual abuse of any
kind, regardless if the act was perpetrated by a member of the clergy,
a coach, a teacher or any other person whom you trusted to provide safe
care for them, The Doan Law Firm can help you get through the difficult
task of holding those who allowed this to happen responsible for the psychological,
physical injury of your child.
The Devastating Impact of Child Sexual Abuse
It is a well-documented scientific fact that the damage caused by child
molestation can be irreparable. Many victims of CSA struggle throughout
their lifetime as they attempt to effectively reconcile the irreconcilable.
The types of trauma that children are exposed to are extensive, including
neglect nutritional deprivation, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and more.
And, all of these types of abuse can cause serious harm to the child.
In many cases, these children have been in the system for a significant
amount of time, being passed from home to home. Additionally, a substantial
number of them have been drugged using psychotropic drugs in order to
make them more docile and controllable, but these types of drugs can often
have severe negative side effects, and some of the drugs were never approved
for use with young children.
It is important to understand that children who are victims of pedophiles
who functioned in a position of power, are incapable of defending themselves
from their attacker, and often these children will not report the abuse,
or in many cases when the child does report the abuse, it is ignored.
Legal Maneuvers by Organizations and Institutions
It is not uncommon for institutions and organizations that are responsible
for allowing the molestation of young children to attempt to circumvent
legal actions by offering the victim's family a cash settlement, while
denying the accuracy of the child's accusations and other specific
details associated with the case.
The truth is that many pedophiles have been operating under the protection
of churches, schools and other organizations for years, as they continue
to inflict immeasurable pain and suffering upon their helpless victims.
Meanwhile, the leaders of these organizations and institutions have failed
to take the necessary steps to not only stop the harmful and illegal activity,
but they have done nothing to ensure that the perpetrator is brought to
justice by reporting the illegal activity to the proper authorities.
Reports published by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services
have revealed the long-term impact of child abuse and neglect. Some of
the long-term issues that children are forced to deal with well into their
adult life include mental health issues, physical health issues, behavioral
issues and the consequences associated with them. Additionally, abused
children generally experience extreme difficulty in navigating through
adolescent years — dealing with issues such as drug use, truancy,
mental health problems and more.
Furthermore, we also know that abused children are more likely to abuse
alcohol and other illicit drugs at some point during their lifetime. There
is empirical data that suggests that as much as two-thirds of people who
are currently participating in drug and alcohol recovery programs were
abused as children. When you work with an experienced child molestation
attorney at The Doan Law Firm, you can expect to be represented in a manner
in which your rights and interests will be diligently defended. Additionally,
you can expect us to pursue the maximum compensation afforded to you under
the law. While there is no amount of money that can mitigate the damage
done by CSA, compensation will be necessary to cover the cost of recovery,
the loss of wages due to the inability to work and more — not to
mention the cost of ongoing therapy.
