Understanding the Legal Definition of Child Abuse
Child abuse is referred to anything that traumatizes a child’s emotional and physical health and development. The abuse can happen from physical or emotional abuse to neglect and sexual abuse.
Anything that causes a non-accidental injury to a child is considered physical child abuse, including:
- Any other sort of bodily harm
When an abuser’s actions or attitude interferes with a kid’s mental health or social development, it is called emotional child abuse.
- Using vulgar language, whether aimed at the child or not
- Shouting or yelling at the child
- Calling the child names
- Making fun of, demeaning, or degrading the child
Sexual abuse is any sexual act happening between an adult and a child. This can cover:
- Sexual videos, games, pictures or other images
- Forced viewing of sexual acts
- Any other lewd behavior
Neglect occurs when a caregiver fails to supply the children with the materials they require for their growth or physical needs.
- Inadequate supervision
- Unsafe housing
- Inadequate food or clothing
- Negligent medical care
- Poor cleanliness
Common Perpetrators of Child Abuse
Do you think that child abusers can be easily recognized and kept away from the children? Sadly, people involved in child abuse are just like anyone else and often seem completely reliable. They might be someone from the family, school, or neighbor. Sexual predators take advantage of vulnerability and trust. They are generally in a position of power, which allows them to manipulate those who trust them.
Some of the common perpetrators of abuse are:
- Teachers or other school administrators
- Daycare staff or managers
- Sports coaches or team management
- Church or religious officials or members
If you or someone you know has been a victim of child abuse, don’t wait to see if you have a case against the perpetrator. Our child abuse attorneys will assess the circumstances of your claim and advise you on the best course of action.
