Justice For Daycare Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

As a former sex crimes prosecutor, attorney Brian Kent held sexual predators accountable for their crimes in criminal courts. Today, Brian is a sexual assault victims lawyer and founding partner of AbuseGuardian.com. He helps victims find justice in civil lawsuits against sexual predators and negligent third parties. Here are some of his thoughts on how daycare sex abuse victims and their families can find justice:

Daycares, preschools, and other businesses in the childcare field must prioritize the safety of the children under their watch. Tragically, sexual abuse prevention needs to be a key component of any daycare safety plan. Sexual predators often seek out employment in positions that involve working with children and necessary safeguards need to be in place to protect children from these predators.

When a daycare employee or owner is accused of child molestation, the victims and their parents should be aware of their legal rights. Many of these cases are preventable and happen because of negligence or outright malice. In some cases, the victim’s family may have grounds for a lawsuit against the daycare.

If you or your child is a victim of daycare sexual abuse, the sex abuse victims lawyers at Abuse Guardian are prepared to help your family find answers during this dark time. You can learn more about your family’s legal options by contacting us for a free consultation.
