Child Sexual Abuse
Aggressively Protecting the Rights of Abused Children
There are few things more abhorrent than an adult who sexually abuses a child. The pain and trauma inflicted on a child can last a lifetime. To make matters worse, many abusers are friends of the family, or even members of the family.
At Aiken and Aiken P.C. Personal Injury Attorneys, we are dedicated to helping victims of child sexual abuse. We approach these cases with compassion and sensitivity, recognizing how hard it is for a sexual abuse victim to come forward. We know that abuse can have a massive impact on a child’s development. We work hard to recover compensation for abused clients, knowing that while no amount of money can make up for what happened, it can give you the ability to pay for injuries and related treatment so you can begin to move forward.
To schedule a free consultation with a compassionate Massachusetts child sexual abuse attorney, call (508) 534-8061 or toll free (800) 401-4186. You can also contact our law firm online. With offices in Boston, Hyannis and Falmouth, we represent clients from Boston to Cape Cod and the Islands.
How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
In child sexual abuse cases, the statute of limitations expires when the victim reaches age 21. There is a very important exception to this rule, however. If memories of the abuse have been repressed and only recently come to light, the statute of limitations is extended. Repression and later recovery of the memories of abuse is a common occurrence. Our attorneys will work hard to prove the case, no matter how long ago the events occurred.
We handle cases involving:
- Forcible rape
- Statutory rape
- Sexual assault of a child
- Child molestation
Working with psychologists, psychiatrists, investigators and economic impact analysts, we will determine your pain and suffering, and show a jury how the quality of your life has been reduced because of what happened. In addition to representing you in court, we can help you get access to support counseling, so you can develop a network of professionals and others you can rely on when you need it most.
