Seeking justice for child sex abuse survivors

Find out why Waters Kraus Paul & Siegel is the right firm for you.

Child Sex Abuse

States are responding to the uproar over childhood sexual abuse committed by adults in authority in the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts, schools, and other trusted institutions. While some victims came forward in their youth, many were ignored or silenced. Some were even time-barred when reporting abuse later as adults. Still, other victims in their 50s and older suddenly recall repressed childhood sexual abuse. Survivors are finally making the connection between years of psychological distress, alcoholism, bad relationships, and other destructive behaviors stemming from long-forgotten or suppressed abuse.
