No one should have to endure the physical and emotional pain of abuse or neglect. Abuse can take many different forms—including physical, verbal, sexual, and psychological. Aside from the serious health risks brought on by abuse and neglect, victims may also carry deep emotional wounds. Perpetrators often prey on “weaker” people who are unable to adequately defend themselves. For that reason, children and the elderly commonly fall victim to abuse.
The School Abuse attorneys at ACA Law have successfully handled large-scale lawsuits, recovering over $10 million dollars in a recent settlement for autistic children who were abused by their teacher. This is believed to be the largest settlement involving the abuse of special needs children in Pennsylvania’s history.
All children should feel safe when they go to school. Unfortunately, many children live in fear of bullying or abuse. Special needs children are especially vulnerable. The rise in technology has allowed bullying to grow increasingly more frequent and difficult to escape. According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people.
