Child Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Children who have been sexually abused may or may not tell someone what had happened to them, when and by whom. There may be other signs of abuse shown by the child’s behavior. A child who has been sexually abused may display evidence of the abuse by:

  • Avoiding undressing in front a parent or sibling or anyone
  • Depressive moods
  • Inattentive
  • Diminished social skills
  • Low self-esteem
  • Showing signs of promiscuity or seductive behavior
  • Recurring nightmares
  • Regressive behavior like bedwetting, fear of darkness or thumb-sucking
  • Missing school repeatedly
  • A sharp decline in performance at school

Child sexual abuse is a horrible and is a crime. Acts of child sexual abuse include any sexual act directed towards a child by an adult older and more powerful than the child. It takes many forms.

Unfortunately, reports of sexual abuse continue apace. Parents and caregivers of children who have been sexually abused need to know that it has occurred. Parents are expecting schools, religious organizations, summer camps, summer schools, scout leaders and all others who have temporary protection of their children to report any signs or knowledge of child sexual abuse.

Illinois has mandatory reporting requirements for health professionals, childcare workers, foster parents, school counselors, school principals, teachers, social and public assistance workers and substance abuse treatment staff to report any signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
