Aggressive Legal Representation for Children Abused By Medical Professionals
Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals have unsupervised interaction with children all the time. Similar to teachers and clergymen, the healthcare professionals, including hospital staff, have a duty to protect children that are under their care and supervision. Unfortunately, some medical professionals utilize their position to harm the very young individuals who they are supposed to provide with medical care and treatment.
The New York child abuse lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. stand up for the rights of young children who have been harmed, abused or mistreated by doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our young clients and will do whatever it takes to seek monetary compensation from those individuals and healthcare institutions that harmed your child and those who allowed it to happen.
We trust certain professionals or people with authority to protect us. We trust the medical professionals to provide us, and especially our young children, with medical care and treatment when we get sick. What we don’t expect is for these very same healthcare professionals to sexually abuse, molest or harm our children. However, unfortunately, there are certain doctors, nurses, hospital staff and other healthcare individuals who abuse their profession and access to young children by abusing the very young individuals who they are supposed to treat and care for.
If you suspect that your child has been harmed by a medical professional, it is imperative that you immediately call law enforcement authorities. You should also call a child abuse attorney to protect your child’s legal rights. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our legal team understands the delicate nature of these types of child abuse cases. While we are sensitive in dealing with our young clients and their concerned parents, we are also aggressive in holding the parties who caused harm accountable.
Doctors and other medical professionals who are accused of violating their oath and patient trust by sexually abusing young children tend to lose their license and even go to jail. They can also be held civilly accountable for their horrific actions. Although seeking monetary compensation will not undo the harm caused to your child, it will bring a sense of justice and closure to a devastating experience.
At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we handle child abuse by doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals with sensitivity and compassion. Our child abuse lawyers represent victims of abuse throughout New York.
