Have you or a loved one been a victim of sexual abuse or assault? If you have been taken advantage of in a sexual manner, you may suffer lifelong psychological, physical and emotional injuries. The sexual abuse attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know that the damage caused by sexual abuse frequently manifests itself in other ways too – Including: missed work and therefore loss of income, medical bills for treatment and much more. Such an offense requires the help of a knowledgeable legal team who can help you navigate through this sensitive and complex time. Our attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin have been successful at bringing justice to victims even if the abuse took place years ago, and often settle the cases without going to trial.

Sexual abuse is a criminal offense that can be punished by imprisonment, but a victim of the abuse can also file a civil lawsuit so they can recover compensation for any damage caused by the sexual abuse. Romanucci & Blandin has significant experience litigating sexual abuse lawsuits and we are very familiar with the challenges and compassion that these cases require.

Many times, the victim is hesitant to speak out about the sexual assault or sexual abuse due to fear or embarrassment. The victim is sometimes told to stay quiet by friends or family as well. There may also be a fear of repercussions if the victim was sexually abused by someone they knew well and trusted, including: a well-known person in their community, religious leader, previous abuser, or even a friend or family member.

If the victim does not speak up about the abuse, it can cause them additional harm. Victims can be left with serious emotional injuries that cannot be healed without justice being served. In addition, by staying quiet, the sexual abuser can inflict more pain and suffering on another victim.

Over the years, our firm has successfully handled cases of sexual abuse and sexual assault happening at:

  • Church
  • School
  • After school program
  • Sports Teams and Clubs
  • Boy Scouts
  • Summer Camp
  • Nursing homes and mental health facilities
  • Doctors office or medical facilities
  • Relative or neighbor’s house

In the last few years, our firm has seen a spike in sexual abuse and sexual assault cases stemming from initial contact on the internet – primarily by adults preying on children. 

Child Sexual Abuse

Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. And every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. Furthermore, according to RAINN, a majority of child victims are 12-17. Of victims under the age of 18: 34% of victims of sexual assault and rape are under age 12, and 66% of victims of sexual assault and rape are age 12-17. 

Child sexual abuse can take many forms, including: forcible rape, indecent exposure, psychological pressure or intimidation, and proliferating child pornography.

While no available treatment is able to give child survivors the health and peace necessary to lead a normal life, our sexual abuse attorneys believe children are especially deserving of proper compensation for the treatment needed in the process of recovery. Furthermore, the institutions responsible for enabling these assaults must be held accountable. 

The team at Romanucci & Blandin is dedicated to creating meaningful change in our communities on behalf of sex abuse victims. We continue to advocate on behalf of 16-year old Desiree Robinson, who lost her life after becoming a victim of sex trafficking and being featured in solicitation posts on the controversial website Backpage.com. In 2017, her mother and members of the Romanucci & Blandin team traveled to Washington D.C., where she testified in front of the U.S. Senate and helped to create federal reform around this incredibly important issue. Our client, Desiree’s mother, was ultimately present in the White House when federal legislation was signed.
