)-- The Zalkin Law Firm has launched a new informational website for adult victims of childhood sexual abuse at https://www.justiceforabusevictims.com
. The website offers links to resources for victims and information about the Zalkin Law Firm and legal options for civil claims.
“Childhood sexual abuse is a public health crisis in our country,” said Irwin Zalkin, Founder of the Zalkin Law Firm. “Victims of Childhood sexual abuse often cannot face those memories until well into adulthood and suffer psychological impacts throughout their lives.”
According to studies by Dr. David Finkelhor, Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center, 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys are a victim of child sexual abuse. Self-report studies show that 20% of adult females and 5-10% of adult males recall a sexual abuse incident in their childhood.
