Representing Children Who Have Been Abused
All children are vulnerable because of their ages and sizes, but the most vulnerable are those who are subjected to physically and psychologically toxic environments. When we hear of child abuse, neglect and molestation, we want to help make the world a better and safer place for them.

Abused children need psychological and financial compensation.
There is no compensation that can help a child fully overcome the devastation of abuse and neglect. It is important, however, to punish the abusers and to get as much financial compensation as possible to help the child recover psychologically and physically.
- Foster home abuse is especially heinous. Children who have come from extremely dysfunctional homes are then subjected to abuse in the foster home. Recovery is difficult, but appropriate care and financial resources can help.
- When school districts hear of teachers preying on students, they have an obligation to investigate. When they fail to investigate, when they neglect background checks, they need to be held responsible for the damage done to innocent children.
- Churches are not always safe places. When priests, ministers, Sunday School teachers and others abuse children in their care, the church needs to stop the abuse — and be held accountable for the consequences.
At Girardi | Keese, it is our calling as personal injury lawyers to stand up for injured people. We are available on a contingency basis so that even those with little or no financial resources can have the help of experienced attorneys.
