In Pennsylvania child molestation injury cases and child sex abuse plaintiff claims there can be a criminal element to the case. From a legal standpoint the Catholic priest, pastor, minister, coach, teacher or doctor that harmed your child may also have been arrested for the act of child molestation and child abuse. In other cases there is not a criminal arrest. While it can sometimes help to have the creep arrested and ultimately convicted it is not necessary legally. The criminal portion of the case and the civil lawsuit are independent of each other.
It is very uncommon to have criminal charges as part of the equation in child sex abuse cases involving Catholic priests, Christian pastors, Latter Day Saints priests, ministers, etc. This is because many Philadelphia child sexual abuse injury victims make the mistake of only reporting the abuse to the church. Once reported the church scrambles to remove that priest and send him elsewhere in the state, somewhere else in the country or another country altogether. This is by no means just as Catholic priests, other religious figures and other assailants need to be held accountable for the harm they have done to you or your child. Our Philadelphia child sexual abuse lawyers will do everything needed to get justice for your child.
In Pennsylvania, reporting child sexual abuse is important. It is imperative that the proper authorities, and not just the church, school, hospital system, etc. are made aware of the trauma you or your child endured.
