There is NO TIME TO BE LOST, because cases must be brought in less than a year and a half.

Bringing a lawsuit regarding childhood sexual abuse is not easy.  A child abuse law case is much more complex than a case involving an automobile accident, or an injury from a slip and fall.  A child abuse case requires determination and insight, combined with the most sophisticated of approaches.

The child abuse lawyers at Harnick and Harnick have the skill and experience to apply to each and every child abuse case.  They are at the forefront of the new Child Victims Abuse law, and how it can help you start your case and obtain the best possible results.

Child abuse cases in New York require unique experts and investigative techniques. Each case presents its own set of challenges. 

Physical symptoms at the time of the child abuse can prove criminal charges, but it takes a good child abuse lawyer to obtain monetary damages for their client.

The Child Victims Act opens many new opportunities for even an adult survivor of child abuse to receive just compensation for sexual abuse.  The child abuse lawyers at Harnick and Harnick have experience in obtaining the best possible outcomes in these sorts of cases.

A child abuse lawyer must work around the many obstacles involved with a child abuse case.  All too often, there are few if any witnesses to child abuse, and an experienced team is needed to investigate and substantiate the abuse. 

A child’s memory can often be vague as to details of where and when the abuse took place, even as the memory of the abuse itself remains all too vivid.

This is where the experienced child abuse lawyers at Harnick and Harnick can make all the difference for their clients. 

It is sometimes is very difficult, in New York as elsewhere, to prove in a court of law that a lack of supervision caused serious harm to a child.  Extensive research and investigation is required to prove these kinds of cases and obtain the settlement that is deserved. Most attorneys simply are not equipped to handle these very specialized cases.

The child abuse lawyers at Harnick and Harnick have the experience to assess all of these factors, and obtain the best possible settlements for their clients.

Many times, the actual abuser will not have insurance, and there may not be money or assets to collect from. But in almost all cases, it is the organization hired to oversee the child's well-being that is responsible for the failure to properly care for these children.

Child abuse victims in New York have the legal firm of Harnick and Harnick as a powerful advocate for their cases. Thanks to the new Child Victims Act in New York, a case can still be brought even when the survivor is an adult and the child abuse happened years before.

Childhood sexual abuse can occur in many different situations and environments. Cases of abuse may occur at day care facilities, at camps, or at public or private schools… or at organized after-school activities such as sports activities or Scouts.

Child abuse can happen to children living in foster homes or residential treatment facilities.

Childhood sexual abuse can be perpetrated by teachers, coaches, doctors, or other trusted adults in the child’s life. Sometimes, abuse is committed by other, older children. 

And all too often, child abuse is perpetrated by priests, rabbis, or other trusted members of the clergy.  Sadly, no branch of organized religion can be considered immune. 

The lawyers at Harnick and Harnick are aware that the new Child Victims Act specifically includes public schools and boarding schools as venues to be included when considering that organizations must be held responsible for any child abuse that occurs in their jurisdiction.  

A child abuser may be just an employee who has no means to provide a settlement. In almost all cases, it is the organization that is overseeing the child's caregivers that is ultimately responsible for the child's well being.
