Sexual abuse and sexual assault cause lifetime injuries. Victims suffer in many ways, including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety.
As a reporter, Steve Boyd was honored by the Associate Press for uncovering the largest priest sex abuse scandal in Western New York history. As a personal injury attorney, Steve is experienced in handling a variety of sexual abuse cases. As a father raising his family in Buffalo, Steve understands the sensitivity required in handling these cases, especially when kids are involved.
There are usually two primary concerns for victims of sexual abuse: obtaining the proper treatment and maintaining confidentiality. In sexual abuse cases, it’s critical to retain the appropriate experts to provide therapy and to help evaluate the long term harms and losses that occurred as a result of the abuse. We also understand that the victim and the victim’s family in many cases will not want the abuse made public, and will take all appropriate steps to make sure these wishes are respected.
If you are a victim of sexual abuse or the parent of an abuse victim you can meet with Steve Boyd to confidentially discuss your potential claim.
