Child Abuse

Reno Injury Attorney for Child Abuse Cases

Free Case Consults Available at (775) 573-0229

Sadly, children can easily fall prey to the negligence, recklessness or malice of others. According to data from the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System, more than 3 million child abuse reports are filed annually in the United States, or one child abuse report is filed every ten seconds. Common perpetrators include someone close to the child, such as a parent, caregiver, teacher, counselor or even another child. If your child has suffered abuse, you may be entitled to receive compensation.

Find out your legal remedies. We'll look over your case at no cost during a free consult.

Types of Child Abuse

The four main types of child abuse include physical, emotional, sexual and neglect. While these are different in nature, they all produce the same outcome: a scarred and damaged child.

Examples of child abuse include:

  • Physical - burning, hitting, kicking, shaking
  • Emotional - belittling, name calling, shouting, vulgar language, yelling
  • Sexual - exhibitionism, forced viewing of sexual acts, lewd behavior, sexual videos or images
  • Neglect - inadequate food/clothing, negligent medical care, poor hygiene, unsafe housing

It is important to recognize whether a child is being abused. Sometimes the signs are not apparent, but changes in behavior or school performance are often main indicators. Protect your child from further harm and hold the perpetrators legally responsible. Our Reno child abuse lawyers at the Law Offices of Steven J. Klearman & Associates are ready to stand up for you.
