West Virginia Attorneys Enforce Civil Liability for Child Sexual Abuse

Dedicated lawyers pursue legal remedies for victims of molestation in the Charleston area

Children are among the most vulnerable members of the population, which makes child sexual abuse one of the most abhorrent crimes imaginable. Molestation robs children of their innocence, dehumanizes them, and instills in them a crippling sense of shame. By taking legal action, a survivor can choose empowerment, which is essential to recovery. In our practice, Forbes Law Offices PLLC helps victims of child molestation pursue civil remedies. These actions often come after a criminal trial has determined punishment against the immediate perpetrator. Our goal is to recover monetary damages, usually against a negligent institution that failed to protect the victim. If you or your child has been the target of a child molester in the Charleston area or West Virginia, we have the knowledge, skill and determination to assert your legal rights and fight for justice.

Experienced trial lawyers manage the challenges of sexual abuse litigation

Child sexual abuse cases can be very difficult to prove. Child victims, though sympathetic, are not always seen as credible witnesses. A successful case requires corroborating evidence. The law extends the statute of limitations for child victims of sexual abuse, so that they can bring civil actions as adults. But evidence often erodes with the passage of time. However, in choosing our firm to represent you, you get a determined legal professional who is committed to building the strongest case possible.
