Sexual Abuse Lawyers Who Stand With Victims
If you or a family member were sexually abused, you know it’s not like any other kind of injury. Experienced sex abuse attorneys know that while sometimes sexual abuse is committed by a stranger, most often it’s done by someone the victim knows. It’s done by someone the victim trusts, looks up to, feels comfortable with. When that trust is violated it makes the pain many times worse. We have seen it many times and our sex abuse lawyers will tell you it’s not unusual, you are not alone, and it’s not your fault.
We have represented countless sexual abuse victims, both children and adults, over the years. We have filed cases in state and federal court, in North Carolina and outside North Carolina. We have been to the appellate courts on these cases.
Our sexual abuse attorneys understand the process of “grooming” that perpetrators of sexual abuse use to gain the trust of their victims. In many cases of sexual abuse, there are statutes of limitations issues to confront, and our sexual abuse lawyers have done that many times. We will be glad to discuss these issues with you if you have questions.
Sexual abuse cases are controlled by a wide range of laws and regulations because, sadly, sexual abuse occurs in so many places: at school, in church, in the doctor’s office, in the after-school program, just to name a few examples. If you have questions about what kind of law applies to your particular situation, our sex abuse lawyers will be glad to talk with you about that also.
