Effects of Sexual Abuse on Children

The effects of sexual abuse can last a lifetime, having an effect on abuse survivors, their spouses, their children and even extended family. At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney, our lawyers focus on helping sexual abuse survivors in Connecticut move forward and holding the perpetrators of sexual abuse accountable for the damage their depraved actions have caused.

The Aftermath of Sexual Abuse

Recovering from sexual abuse can be very difficult, especially for people who are suffering in silence without the support of family and professionals. Some effects of sexual abuse include:

  • Suicide
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Dissociative identity disorder (DID)

Sexual Abuse Does Not Have To Be the End

Our society has made great progress in being open about sexual abuse and supporting survivors, but it is still understandably difficult for survivors to come forward. Throughout our years of practice, we have been inspired by survivors who have had the bravery to come forward and hold abusers accountable.

If you are ready to come forward or are considering doing so, we want to stand by your side.

We understand the concerns of individuals and families about reporting sexual abuse. We are adept at protecting the privacy interests of our clients while holding abusers accountable. Our attorneys are experienced, compassionate and professional when representing our clients. We create an environment where clients can feel safe and confident in our ability to see that justice is done.
