Los Angeles, CA Physical Child Abuse Cases

When an individual is accused of causing physical harm to a child, this creates a serious legal situation if the case is reported to law enforcement and Child Protective Services. Teachers and doctors are required to report cases that appear to indicate physical abuse to the authorities, often creating a terrible and frightening situation for an innocent parent or caregiver.

In many cases in which individuals are accused of causing physical harm to a child, it is based on bruising that the child could have received in any number of ways, including falling or any of the activities they are engaged in daily. Nonetheless, once the charge or accusation of abuse has been brought forward, the accused parent is forced to take a stand. These cases can be particularly tragic, as the children may be taken away from the parents based on the report from a teacher, doctor, neighbor or relative.
