When Caregivers Sexually Abuse Children

As a parent, entrusting the care of your child to someone else is one of the most difficult things you have to do. While most caregivers, coaches and educators are the upright people they claim to be, some are not. Some are predators who use their position to take advantage of young children or violate their privacy. Horrifyingly, the institutions that employ them will often try to cover this up rather than face the resulting public relations firestorm.

At Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, located in Clinton, our goal is to defend the children who cannot defend themselves. Your child deserves to know that as a parent you did everything in your power to fight the institutional power that victimized them, and we will help you do that. Our attorneys have decades of experience in New Jersey that we will bring to bear on your family's behalf.

Sexual Abuse Can Happen Anywhere

A reality of modern life is that children are often outside of their parents' care. Without proper safety measures in place, predators can infiltrate institutions and assume positions of authority over their victims. Our attorneys have dealt with childhood sexual assault cases involving:

  • Schools and educational programs
  • Sports teams and athletic camps
  • Day care providers
  • Scouting organizations

We are familiar with the manipulative tactics that these abusers often use to secure the silence of their victims. By connecting you with the proper psychological professionals and other support, we will lay the foundation to eradicate this abuse and secure justice for your family.

Institutions Can Be Liable

Organizations that serve children have a heightened responsibility to ensure that their staff members are safe. When background checks and sexual abuse policies are missing, kids are the ones who pay the price.

Our experienced lawyers will fully examine the circumstances that enabled your child's abuse. If an institution was negligent – and they frequently are – we will use every avenue available to secure compensation for your family. While this will not undo what happened to your child, it can lead to changes that will protect other people's children in the future.
