New York City Lawyers for Children Abused In Youth Organizations

Aggressive Legal Representation for Children Abused In Youth Organizations

child abuseChild abuse or molestation should never be tolerated, especially abuse within youth organizations that specifically focus on guiding and helping young people. Unfortunately, these youth organizations have become a prime location that sex offenders and predators go to be near innocent children.

The NYC child abuse lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. stand up for the rights of young children who have been harmed, abused or mistreated in youth organizations. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our young clients and will do whatever it takes to seek financial compensation from those who harmed your child and those who allowed it to happen.

Investigating Abuse Cases In Youth Organizations

At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our child abuse attorneys will investigate and confront misconduct on behalf of your children. While youth organizations, like the highly respected Boys and Girls Club and Boy Scouts of America, are expected to conduct their own internal investigation regarding any accusations of abuse or molestation, it is also important that you report any suspected issues to law enforcement as well.

In some cases, these allegations may not be adequately investigated by the organization in an effort to protect the organization’s image. Our legal team will aggressively work to bring these charges to light, prevent future abuse and harassment, and hold all parties involved accountable for the harm they have done or should have prevented to your child.

The Youth Organization’s Responsibility to Our Children

Youth organizations, religious institutions, schools and other organizations serving young children have a duty to provide a safe environment for our children. One way to ensure the safety of their young patrons and members is to do thorough background checks of their employees.

Before an organization hires an employee, or even accepts a volunteer, they need to perform a thorough background check of that person. If this check reveals any information that may be suspicious, the individual should not be hired or further investigation should be done before hiring or accepting the individual as a volunteer.

If your child gets assaulted, molested or sexually abused by an employee or volunteer of a youth organization or any other organization, you should immediately consult with both law enforcement and a New York child abuse attorney.

At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we handle child abuse in youth organization with sensitivity and compassion. Our child abuse lawyers represent victims of abuse throughout New York. We will work with our young clients and their loved ones to ensure that the people who caused the harm and allowed the abuse to happen at their youth organization be held accountable for their negligence.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
