Defining Childhood Sexual Abuse

Childhood sexual abuse refers to any sexual activity that occurs between a child and an adult or older person. This abuse can take many forms, including but not limited to:

  • Physical contact such as molestation or rape
  • Non-contact abuse such as exhibitionism or exposing a child to pornography
  • Online abuse through grooming or exploitation.

Childhood sexual abuse can have long-lasting effects on the survivor, impacting their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It is a serious violation of trust and can have profound consequences for the survivor’s life.

Perpetrators of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Perpetrators of childhood sexual abuse are often known to the child and their family. This can include family members, such as parents, siblings, or other relatives, as well as family friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, and clergy members, among others. Perpetrators often use their position of trust or authority to manipulate and exploit children. Strangers can also be perpetrators, but the majority of childhood sexual abuse cases involve someone the child knows and trusts.

RAM Law specializes in childhood sex abuse cases brought against:

New Jersey Child Sex Abuse Law S477

In 2019, New Jersey passed landmark legislation allowing victims of child sexual abuse to come forward and file civil actions against negligent entities responsible for the abuse. Organizations like the Boy Scouts of America, the Catholic Diocese, schools, private organizations, and even towns can be held responsible. Before this legislation, the statute of limitations was two years after turning 18, which did not align with the psychology of victims who often wait until later in life to come forward. This law opened up a window for victims to tell their stories and seek justice.

Justice and Compensation for Survivors

Justice and compensation for survivors of childhood sexual abuse are crucial for healing and holding perpetrators accountable. RAM Law is dedicated to fighting for survivors’ rights, providing compassionate legal representation to help them seek justice. Survivors of childhood sexual abuse can pursue compensation through civil lawsuits, which can provide financial compensation for damages such as medical expenses, therapy costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages. RAM Law understands the sensitive nature of these cases and offers personalized support to survivors throughout the legal process.
