El Paso Daycare Sexual Abuse
We all want to believe that our children are safe in the hands of caregivers, but statistics don’t lie. According to the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN), nearly 93% of childhood sexual abuse victims know their abuser personally. Perhaps we should worry less about “stranger danger” and more about the people we trust, including daycare providers in El Paso Tx.

When it comes to recuperating financial losses after a caregiver molests your child, a lawyer must follow several steps. These include:Establishing Duty of Care
A “duty of care” is the legal obligation to act in a way that doesn’t harm others. In daycare abuse cases, your attorney will establish who had a duty of care to your child. This may include daycare workers, owners, corporations, school districts, religious entities, and more. For example, a public school district owes a duty of care to every child in their classes and after-school activities.Proving a Breach of Duty
Once your legal representative has established duty of care, they must show who breached their duty (besides just the abuser). For example, if a corporation owns a daycare but fails to background check their employees, they breached their duty of care.Estimating Damages
Another step in securing compensation in molestation cases is estimating the damages that resulted from the abuse. This includes direct monetary damages like medical bills and lost wages as well as more emotional or behavioral damages.
For example, many victims of childhood sexual abuse suffer from PTSD and anxiety. They are also more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior and substance abuse. All of these risk factors can lead to financial and emotional difficulties.
The above are just some of the necessary steps for securing compensation for sexual abuse. The experienced lawyers at Carabin Shaw fully understand this process and want to help your family seek justice.Free Consultations at Carabin Shaw
