Child Abuse Attorney in San Francisco

We Give Victims of Abuse in California a Voice - Call (888) 831-8448 Today!

Unfortunately, child abuse continues to be a frightening reality in our culture. Older, stronger, and potentially dangerous individuals pose a threat to your children. Child abuse, depending on the severity, can lead to serious medical conditions and injuries. San Francisco infant victims have suffered severe brain damage as a result of Shaken Baby Syndrome, while others suffer from broken arms, bruises, and emotional damage. If your child has been the victim of child abuse, it is absolutely essential that you seek out the advice and representation of an effective legal team immediately.

Pursuing Justice for Child Abuse Victims

Due to their small size and limited ability to protect themselves, children do not stand much of a chance against victimization. No matter how vigilant you may be, sometimes things happen that are completely outside your control. Taking legal action against the individual responsible for the abuse, on the other hand, is within your control. Every action should and must be taken to ensure that these criminals face justice for the wrongs they have committed against you and your child.

A qualified and highly skilled attorney can assist you through these troubling times and help fight for the legal outcome you and your family deserves in civil court. Whether the perpetrator was a doctor, teacher, coach, religious worker or other predator, these individuals can be brought to justice in a civil claim for compensation for the extensive damages they inflicted on the innocent.

Child abuse will only decrease if we hold abusers accountable for their actions. If you or a loved one has been the victim of child abuse, our attorneys may be able to help. At Bostwick & Peterson, we are dedicated to providing you and your loved one with the sound legal representation necessary to help get closure and address the damages in financial terms.

Call our firm today and take the first step towards achieving justice for your precious children.
