Child abuse can take numerous forms, each of which can inflict lifelong physical and emotional damage on the child in question. While sexual abuse may be one of the most widely reported forms of child abuse, it is far from the only ordeal which young victims are regularly subjected to. San Diego child abuse attorneys from Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP are high skilled at handling all manner of cases with the empathy, compassion and support you deserve. Our extensive experience enables us to provide the gentle treatment you require, with an aggressive approach towards the perpetrators, ensuring you receive the maximum possible compensation.
Child abuse tends to be inflicted by an adult in a position of some authority, perhaps a member of the victim’s family, a member of a religious order, leader in a youth group or community organization, medical professional, teacher, or another supposedly responsible adult. While the abuser is, of course, responsible for their own actions, certain circumstances could see their employing organisation being held accountable for at least some part of the child abuse.
San Diego Child Abuse Victims Deserve Outstanding Legal Representation
When your child has been a victim of abuse, the consequences can reach far beyond any actual physical injuries inflicted upon them. There may be a significant impact on the child’s emotional, sexual and social development, as well as their self-esteem and overall personality. When you entrust your case to our San Diego child abuse attorneys, one part of the evidence we will seek to present is testimony from expert witnesses, who can prove how the abuse affected your child’s life. Relationships, trust, future employability, and learning capabilities are just some of the areas which may be irreparably damaged by the sexual or physical abuse your child has endured.
If you, or your child, has been a victim of any form of abuse, it is important to know that there is no reason to be ashamed. The child abuse was not your fault, nor did you invite it. Instead, you deserve expert legal representation, and monetary damages to help you secure the professional assistance and treatment you require in order to move on from the ordeal and live a fulfilling life.
Our extensive legal expertise, and genuine compassion for victims, makes Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP San Diego child abuse attorneys highly suited to providing the guidance and support you will require throughout the legal process.
Filing a Lawsuit After San Diego Child Abuse
Once you have decided to file a lawsuit relating to the abuse you or your child have suffered, you should be aware that there is a statute of limitations dictating the period in which you can bring your suit. You must consult with an experienced San Diego child abuse attorney as soon as possible, as this statute can be very limiting, particularly where the victim is now an adult, or a government organisation is involved.
