Child Sexual Abuse Miami Attorney
Sexual Abuse of Children
It is hard to imagine a more traumatic, irreparable harm that could befall a child than sexual abuse. At Viñas & DeLuca, PLLC, we believe that sexual abuse of children should be deterred in every way possible. This means holding accountable those persons or entities who negligently or deliberately turn a blind eye to the sexual abuse of children. Florida’s civil justice system can provide a road to doing just that. Lawyers at Viñas & DeLuca, PLLC have experience handling civil claims stemming from sexual abuse of children in Florida and we invite you to contact us if you or someone you love has been sexually abused.
Types of Sexual Abuse of Children
Sexual abuse of children can arise anytime a child is pressured or forced to engage in, witness, or be exposed to a sexual act. It can include sex, improper touching, or exposing a child to sexual activities or topics. Here are a few examples:
– Sex Trafficking
– Forced Viewing of Sexual Acts
– Inappropriate Physical Contact
– Sexual Games
– Lewd Behavior
– Sexually Suggestive Conduct
– Sexual Molestation
Who Can Be Sued for Sexual Abuse of a Child in Florida
Under Florida law, any person or entity who engages in, enables, or negligently permits the sexual abuse of a child can potentially be held liable in a civil lawsuit and forced to pay money damages. Claims can include intentional wrongdoing, neglect, and in some cases failing to satisfy certain statutory duties imposed under Florida law.
Each claim must be critically analyzed by an experienced attorney to determine the most likely path to recovery. Prospective defendants in these cases can include churches, foster care contractors, daycares, schools, camps, sports teams, and any person working for one of these groups.
