Sexual-AbuseLos Angeles Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse or assault can happen to anyone and can take a variety of different forms. Sexual abuse has no age, no sex, no race, and no color. It involves any type of unwanted interaction or contact that is intended to sexually stimulate the perpetrator. If you or a loved one has become the victim of sexual abuse, it is important to understand that you are not to blame and that you have certain legal rights which should be protected.

The legal team at the Law Offices of Mike S. Carrillo is committed to supporting the victims of sexual abuse. We have a successful track record representing victims of a wide variety of different abuse situations. Our aggressive, yet compassionate, Los Angeles sexual abuse lawyers are advocates for every sexual abuse victim they meet.

Common Situations Where Sexual Abuse Can Happen

Sexual abuse can happen just about anywhere. Some of the unfortunate situations in which sexual abuse or assault can occur include:

  • Hospitals who nurses, staff, or physicians sexually abuse or assault patients
  • Patients or residents in nursing home facilities
  • School or daycare centers whose employees prey on children
  • Churches whose clergy or staff members commit abuse

In these types of situations, the hospitals, nursing home facilities, schools or daycares, or churches can be held legally liable for the abuse, especially if the institutions had prior knowledge of the abuse.

The Los Angeles sexual abuse lawyers at the Law Offices of Mike S. Carrillo have the experience, knowledge and resources to ensure justice is done for victims in each of these situations, and other situations as well. When you hire our law firm, you will never be “just another child abuse case” or “one more church molestation case.”

Recognizing the Warning Signs of Sexual Abuse

Each sexual abuse case is unique. Sexual abuse or assault does not occur in only one type of situation. Often, sexual abuse victims remain silent as a result of feeling ashamed or guilty. As such, it is imperative that you know the signs of sexual abuse in order to help your loved one obtain the legal justice that he or she deserves. Below are warning signs of sexual abuse:

  • Has nightmares or other sleep problems without an explanation
  • Has become unexplainably distracted or distant
  • Has a sudden change in eating habits or refuses to eat
  • Has trouble swallowing
  • Experiences sudden mood swings
  • Develops new or unusual fear of certain people or places
  • Suddenly has money or other gifts without a reason
