The days and weeks that pass after discovering your child has been abused can feel very lonely. It may seem like no one understands what your family is going through, and people you used to trust are beginning to take sides. The truth is that you are not alone and this was not your fault.
Texas Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Cases
Child abuse cases come in many forms, and we know that no two cases will ever be alike. You're dealing not just with injuries right now, but you're also dealing with emotional scars and the trauma of being betrayed by a person you and your child probably trusted.
In 2013, nearly 67,000 children and teens were confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect in the state of Texas. These young people were hurt by authority figures they trusted—and now their lives will be forever changed.
Some children are abused by strangers, but in most cases, they are hurt or violated by someone they have a close relationship with, including:
- Childcare Workers at Daycare Centers
- Teachers at Private Schools
- Clergy Members and Church Personnel
- Family Members
- Family Friends
The abuse these people inflict upon children can be physical, sexual, emotional, or a combination of all three. Some types of abuse may not even be completely intentional, but regardless of intention, child abuse is never acceptable and responsible parties should be held accountable for their actions and poor choices. Learn how a Texas child abuse lawyer can help if your child has been sexually abused.
