New York Child Sexual Abuse Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for Child Victims of Sexual Abuse

Child Abuse Lawyer nySexual abuse is not a subject anyone wants to discuss, especially if it involves young children. Simply put, child sexual abuse is one of parent’s greatest fears. Child sexual abuse refers to any sexual conduct, contact, intimidation or grooming of an individual under the age of 18. Child sexual predators are often someone the child knows, whether a friend, family member, or an employee of a community organization or school.

If you suspect that your child is the victim of sexual abuse, it is critical that you immediately report it to law enforcement. You should also consult with an experienced and caring New York child sexual abuse attorney. Our legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our young clients. We will take any necessary measures to help you and your loved one seek financial compensation from the parties who injured them.

Disturbing Child Sexual Abuse Statistics

Although the prevalence of child sexual abuse is difficult to determine because of the lack of reporting, experts agree that it occurs far greater than what is reported to authorities. The following are disturbing statistics reported by the Crimes Against Children Research Center:

  • 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys is a victim of child sexual abuse;
  • Self-report studies show that 20% of adult females and 5-10% of adult males recall a childhood sexual assault or sexual abuse incident;
  • During a one-year period in the U.S., 16% of youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
  • Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
  • Children are most vulnerable to CSA between the ages of 7 and 13.

The Rights of Children Sexual Abuse Victims

If your child or another young individual that you care about has become the victim of sexual abuse, it is important to know that you may pursue justice through the criminal and civil justice systems. The goal of a criminal proceeding is to protect society. Your child, or the victim, will serve as a witness for the prosecution. The goal of a civil lawsuit is to seek the best interests of your sexually abused child. Civil cases often include seeking compensation for the physical and emotional injuries your child suffered and filing for restraining orders and custody as a result of the sexual abuse.

At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we believe young children have the right to be heard and the right to bring their abuser to justice. Our New York children sexual abuse attorneys will investigate the facts of your child’s case in order to hold accountable all responsible parties. Although filing a personal injury claim will not undo the harm done to your child, it can bring a sense of justice and closure.

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. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
