It may take decades before a survivor of child sex abuse can fully acknowledge what happened to them when they were younger. Feelings of anger, shame, embarrassment and guilt all encroach on a survivor of child abuse throughout their life and make them feel hesitant to come forward with the truth.
Some survivors of child abuse fail to form healthy relationships as adults or even engage in self-destructive behavior as a maladaptive coping mechanism in reaction to the abuse. In other cases, a parent comes to the horrific realization that their child has been sexually abused by a stranger or even a trusted family friend or relative. Whatever the case may be, our team of child abuse lawyers at Blake & Ayaz are here to help.
Our compassionate attorneys help survivors of child abuse confront their abusers, as well as the organizations that shielded and protected those abusers. You deserve the right to reclaim your power and your voice. While filing a lawsuit against your abuser will never remove the damage done to you as a child, or done to your child, it can truly change the trajectory of the rest of your life. Feeling empowered can change how you view yourself and the world. Your courageous choice to hold your abuser accountable also helps ensure that other children are not victimized by this same abuser in the future.
