Many victims are discouraged from filing child abuse lawsuits because the allegations can be very hard to prove. Whether the case involves a young witness or actions that occurred several years ago, defendants and their attorneys often take drastic actions to discredit testimony and evidence. Our experienced lawyers have a deep background in these matters and know how to counter these defense tactics. When it is useful, we bring in medical experts and other qualified witnesses to corroborate a victim’s account so that we can maximize the likelihood of a fair verdict or settlement.
