Assault And Abuse Lawyers In New Jersey

Seeking Compensation And Justice For Abuse And Sexual Assault Victims

Abuse and Assault is a crime that comes in many forms, including sexual abuse and assault, and affects people of all genders, colors, and creeds; however minors and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to this type of crime.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that as many as 17% of boys, and 25% of girls will experience some form of sexual abuse before the age of eighteen. A National Institute of Justice study found that sexual abuse of the elderly was severely under-reported and understudied, and that residents of nursing homes are especially at risk.

Less than a third of sexual abuse and assault victims report the crime to authorities, and an even smaller percentage seek civil charges against their offenders.

In many cases of abuse and assault, there are third parties (such as hospitals, schools, religious or sports organizations and others) responsible for negligent hiring or supervision or inadequate protocols that led to the crime.
