Sexual Abuse in Care Environments

When children are placed in any sort of caregiving environment, the caregivers are being placed in a position of trust. Unfortunately, caregivers can abuse their positions of trust, resulting in:

  • Sexual abuse by day care providers. Daycares are supposed to be safe and happy places where children can learn social skills. Unfortunately, some day care providers are not only negligent, but they actively target and victimize the children in their care.
  • Sexual abuse in child care settings. Any child care setting — including babysitting situations — can result in abuse if the care provider is a predator.
  • Sexual abuse in foster home settings. Unfortunately, children placed in foster homes can be especially vulnerable. Social workers and other authorities who are supposed to look out for foster children are often overwhelmed by heavy caseloads and may not always check up adequately enough to notice abuse.

If your child has been targeted by a perpetrator, you deserve justice. Speaking to a personal injury attorney and seeking a claim against the offender ensures they will not get away with what they have done. Seeking justice through a civil court can also secure compensation for your child so you can pay for therapy, counseling and the other services your child may need as they start to heal.
