The signs of child sex abuse often go unnoticed. It is possible that your child’s behavior or demeanor has changed or that an adult – such as a teacher or coach – has seemed to take an interest in your child. These signs are subtle but it is important to carefully assess them so that abuse can be stopped and abusers can be held accountable.
At Goff Law Group, our child sex abuse attorneys in Hartford take these cases extremely seriously and will remain relentless in our pursuit of justice on your behalf. Allow our compassionate yet aggressive team of legal professionals to take on your case and protect your child.
What Constitutes Sexual Abuse of a Child?
Connecticut maintains strict sexual abuse laws, which are particularly strict when the crime involves children.
Examples of sexual abuse of a child include but are not limited to:
- Taking or distributing photos or videos of a child that are sexual in nature
- Making sexual requests
- Exposing genitals to a child or forcing a child to expose themselves
- Forcing a child to view pornographic videos or photos
- Any sort of sexual act performed with a child
These acts are, unfortunately, far too common. At Goff Law Group, we are dedicated to representing the innocent victims who have endured these forms of abuse.
Sexual abuse of children can occur anywhere, but often occurs at:
- Religious institutions
- Sports events
- Youth agencies and organizations
Negligence in Child Sex Abuse Cases
Aside from the perpetrator, you may also be able to seek damages against others who acted negligently by allowing the abuse to occur or failing to keep your children safe. For instance, you may hold a school accountable for a teacher who committed sexual abuse.
Potential Damages in Your Case
Because sexual abuse is a crime, there will be a criminal case against the abuser. However, you also have the right to file a civil case against him or her. A civil case can help you recover damages for expenses resulting from the incident(s) as well as punitive damages.
You may be able to seek compensation to cover:
- Medical bills
- Psychiatric treatment
- Pain and suffering
