Little Rock, Arkansas Childhood Sexual Abuse Attorneys
Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse While Receiving Justice
You Can Count on Us to Help You Reclaim Your Life
Childhood sexual abuse is one of the most horrific events in a young person’s life. Not only are the effects felt by the child whose personal relationships, self-confidence, and general childhood development may be irrevocably and tragically impacted, but those who survive sexual abuse at the hands of others often have no voice to express their suffering.
Childhood sexual abuse, which some may think of as child molestation, is actually much broader and may more accurately be defined as child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent abuses a child for sexual stimulation. Childhood sexual abuse may include asking or pressuring a child to engage in sexual activities, indecent exposure, showing pornography to a child or using a child to produce child pornography, actual sexual contact with a child, physical contact with a child’s genitals, or even viewing the genitals without physical contact.
Predators, abusers, or pedophiles who prey upon the young exploit their fear and doubts, convincing the victim that no one will believe him or her. In some cases, the abuser relies upon physical threats to secure the child’s silence. Worse, those who victimize children are sometimes in positions of great trust—a teacher, a health care provider, or even a religious figure. In those cases, we believe that those institutions who harbor such predators, who fail to protect the innocent, such as hospitals, religious organizations, or schools, should also be held accountable.
The Brad Hendricks Law Firm knows that recovery from childhood sexual abuse is never easy. It can be traumatic at times, always difficult, and to the victim, seemingly unending. For most, the pain caused by childhood sexual abuse is always felt and never forgotten. For those who do want a voice, who are willing to fight back rather than silently suffering at the hands of predators who walk among us, we believe that justice and a sense of personal empowerment are possible.
Although all the money in the world can not undo the pain and trauma caused by child molestation or other childhood sexual abuse, The Brad Hendricks Law Firm believes that those who sexually abuse or molest the defenseless should be held financially accountable as well as criminally responsible. We want to help victims of sexual abuse find a voice and the courage to stand unwavering, demanding not only personal justice, including compensation for their injuries, but also serving to protect others who might otherwise be similarly victimized in the future.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of childhood sexual abuse, you might not want to talk about your experience with anyone, much less a lawyer who is, ultimately, a stranger. However, an attorney may be necessary to help you pursue the compensation to which you may be entitled to address your physical, emotional, and financial injuries. You don’t have to face your pain alone. Please contact The Brad Hendricks Law Firm today for a free consultation with an attorney who is not only qualified to pursue your claims against the abuser, but who also genuinely cares that your and your family receive justice, and eventually, peace.
If we can help you, your childhood sexual abuse case will be taken on a contingency fee basis. If we recover nothing on your behalf, you owe us nothing. Of paramount importance to us is that you receive the justice to which you are entitled. For that, you can count on The Brad Hendricks Law Firm.
