Child Care Sexual Abuse Lawyers in Pennsylvania
Daycares, summer camps, babysitters and other child care providers should provide parents peace of mind that their children will be safe. The sad reality, however, is that child sex abuse occurs in child care settings.
Background checks, proper supervision, and complete child protection policies can prevent child sexual abuse by babysitters, in daycares, summer camps and foster homes. Sometimes this fails to happen, putting children at risk.
Daycare Sexual Abuse
Children are sadly vulnerable to sexual abuse at daycare. Children are sometimes sexually abused by a daycare employee or another child. We have experience handling cases against daycares.
Babysitter Sexual Abuse
Children are sometimes sexually abused by their babysitter, or while they should be supervised by a babysitter. In either case, you may have a legal claim if you or your child were sexually abused while under the supervision of a babysitter.
Foster Care Sexual Abuse
Foster care is an attempt to protect the most vulnerable children: those forced to grow up without the love and care of their natural parents. So, it is particularly disturbing when foster care places them in the path of further harm. Foster care child abuse in Pennsylvania is, unfortunately, more common than anyone would like to admit. Much of it goes unreported.
Summer Camp Sexual Abuse
Summer camps should be safe places for children to enjoy, where parents can trust their kids will be safe from child sexual abuse. Unfortunately, children are sexually abused at summer camps by staff, volunteers, or other children. We have experience handling cases against summer camps for camps’ failures to protect children from sexual abuse.
