What to do if Your Child is a Victim of Child Abuse in FL

Damian Mallard, Esq.

Board Certified Sarasota Personal Injury Attorney

https://www.mallardlawfirm.com/ If you suspect that your child is a victim of abuse, you are most likely overwhelmed. You probably have many difficult questions that you need answered. Florida child abuse attorney Damian Mallard explains in this video what you should do if your child has been abused.


Once parents learn that their child may be a victim of sexual abuse, verbal abuse, or physical abuse, parents of the child often ask us "What should I do first?"  The most important thing is to remove your child from the abusive environment immediately, and then you could contact a skilled child abuse attorney in Florida or in your local community.  An attorney experienced in child abuse cases will answer your questions and assist you in notifying the proper authorities so that the perpetrator can be prosecuted properly.  A lawyer can also help you get the proper medical and mental health treatment for your child.  After a child goes through a traumatic event, counseling is often necessary.


At Mallard Law Firm, we have experience in handling child abuse claims against private and public schools, preschools, religious organizations, church daycares, individuals, and private organizations normally responsible for after school care.  We have also written a book on child abuse to help parents of victims during such a traumatic time.  Order your copy, When the Unthinkable Happens: Your Guide to Florida Child Abuse Cases, on our website at https://www.mallardlawfirm.com/.  The book is free to Floridians, and we will also provide you with a free, no-obligation consultation.  Call for your appointment with a Sarasota child abuse attorney today at 888-409-3805.
