In New York, filing criminal charges against the actual abuser is often easier to do than winning a civil case against the person who was supervising the abuser. Most people that abuse children do not have the financial means to provide an adequate settlement.  A New York child abuse lawyer must prove to a jury that these abusive situations exist and that a financial reward is justified. Finding the responsible agency or institution that a reward can be attained from is a very difficult task. An average New York lawyer that routinely handles personal injury cases will not be prepared for the unique qualities of a child abuse case. Most attorneys do not have the experience or knowledge to handle the complexities of a child abuse case, which can lead to a dismissal and a lack of justice. It is a terrible situation when the child abuse victims that are entitled to the largest rewards under the law are often the least likely to receive them.
