Child Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Morgan & Morgan attorneys are helping victims of child sexual abuse seek justice and compensation from the institutions that failed to protect them; including churches, summer camps, schools, religious organizations, and youth recreation organizations like the Boy Scouts of America. 

Child sexual abuse creates psychological trauma with effects that can last a lifetime. Victims of such transgressions often experience post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety long after the abuse took place.

Although it is impossible to undo the revolting acts, it is possible for victims to receive compensation for the psychological and psychiatric treatment needed in the process of recovery.

Morgan & Morgan has over 700 lawyers across 16 states and the resources to stand up for child sexual abuse victims, whether they are still minors or are well into adulthood (depending on the statute of limitation laws governing the state where the abuse occurred). We’re ready to fight for victims across the country, including states like CaliforniaNew York, and Pennsylvania

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Is Child Sexual Abuse?

    Child sexual abuse is the use of force, pressure, or manipulation of a child by an adult or adolescent for the sake of sexual gratification. Child sexual abuse can take many forms. These include forcible rape, psychological pressure or coercion, indecent exposure, and proliferating child pornography.

    Forcible Rape

    Forcible rape occurs without the consent of the victim and with the use of physical force or threats thereof. In such an incident, the victim believes that resisting would not prevent the rape. Forcible rape also includes attempts to commit the act.

    Psychological Pressure or Coercion

    Psychological pressure or coercion occurs when the victim is controlled mentally to perform sex acts by means of intimidation. This can range from threatening to destroy personal property to exposing a secret the victim has kept concealed.

    Indecent Exposure

    Indecent exposure is displaying one’s genitals to a child or showing a child pornographic material. Although these acts may not involve physical contact, they may still have lasting psychological effects on the victim.

    Proliferating Child Pornography

    Child pornography is any depiction of a youth engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Victims of child pornographers not only face the trauma of sexual exposure but also the fear of knowing that the media they appear in likely can’t be removed from the internet.

  • The Lasting Effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse

    Childhood sexual abuse is a painful and traumatic experience that often leaves survivors with life-altering and long-term physical and/or psychological damage. The resulting illnesses and disabilities can require decades of treatment and therapy, and often, no available treatment is able to give survivors the health and peace necessary to lead a normal life.  

    Conditions and Symptoms Suffered by Survivors

    Survivors of child sexual abuse often suffer from mental illnesses and impairments of varying severity. The most common of these is depression, but other conditions include:

    • Anxiety disorders
    • Eating disorders
    • Personality disorders
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder
    • Relationship and intimacy issues
    • Somatic disorders

    Survivors often suffer from physical symptoms as well, whether they develop later in life or are caused more directly by the abuse. Studies have shown that survivors are also more likely to suffer from ill-health in general. 

    Specific conditions common to survivors include issues related to:

    • Gastrointestinal health
    • Gynecologic or reproductive health
    • Pain
    • Cardiopulmonary symptoms
    • Obesity

    Survivors often spend lifetimes treating these conditions and illnesses at great expense to themselves and their families. We believe in holding the enabling institutions responsible for these expenses and recovering appropriate compensation for survivors.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
