Connecticut Attorneys Represent Victims of Abuse

Sexual Abuse is Never a Child's Fault

Victims of sexual abuse are often uncomfortable about coming forward, but child abuse is always the perpetrator's fault. To ensure your privacy, we are able to shield the identity of the victim from the public.

At the Law Firm of Swerdloff & Swerdloff, we will vigorously pursue financial compensation for your pain and suffering as well as the emotional and psychological damage you suffered. We will work to hold your abuser accountable for the damages he or she caused. This is a black and white issue with no grey areas.

Statue of Limitations Remains until Child Molestation Victim is an Adult

A child sexual abuse case never has two sides. Sexual experiences between a child and an adult are always abuse. End of story.

Sexual abuse is illegal and perpetrators face criminal charges. Connecticut law also protects survivors of sexual abuse so that the survivor can bring those responsible to civil court to recover financial compensation. The statute of limitations – the time for bringing such a case – does not expire until the victim reaches the age of 48.

Successfully Obtain Millions of Dollars in Settlement

We are experienced at assisting clients obtain millions of dollars in settlements. In one case, we obtained a $12.4 million judgment for a woman who, as a child, had been sexually abused by neighbors.

While the perpetrators did not have sufficient assets to pay the entire judgment, we successfully foreclosed on their homes, and seized bank accounts and vehicles. We obtained sufficient compensation to cover the victims' medical bills and therapy and for her to move out of state, purchase a new home, and successfully start a new life.
