Sexual Abuse

We all want to be safe from sexual abuse, and we want our loved ones to be safe as well. Unfortunately, sexual predators are not always easy to spot until they have caused harm, and in many cases, no one except their victims knows what they have done.  No matter what the circumstances of the abuse you have faced, if you have been harmed by a sexual predator, you are not alone.  You do not have to remain silent.  You can speak out against this horrendous and heinous form of abuse.  You have a right to be compensated for the trauma a sexual abuser has caused you.

In Connecticut, a person harmed by childhood sexual abuse may bring a civil suit for damages within thirty [30] years of the person’s eighteenth birthday.  The practical effect of this law is that if you were a victim of sexual abuse, you have until your 48th birthday to formally file a legal claim.  However, because evidence fades with time, we highly recommend that you contact an attorney long before the formal deadline so that the strongest possible case can be built on your behalf.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by sexual abuse, you can preserve your legal rights and obtain the compensation you deserve by taking legal action. The Kocian Law Group can assist you with your sexual abuse claim.  We will listen carefully and with compassion to your situation, and we will fight to hold those who harmed you responsible for their actions.
