Effects Of Sexual Abuse

Experiencing sexual abuse as a child is one of the most traumatic experiences anyone can have. As with any childhood trauma, it can have a profound effect on your psyche, harming your relationships with family and friends, your career prospects and your ability to enjoy life.

The Law Office of Brian K. Mackintosh, Ltd., is dedicated to helping child sexual assault survivors heal from their trauma. As an attorney based in Honolulu, I represent victims throughout Hawaii. I understand how memories of abuse can pervade every aspect of your life, and I will do everything possible to help bring you closure.

Common Effects Of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse as a child can lead to a wide range of mental conditions and self-destructive behavior later in life, including:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Depression
  • Flashbacks
  • Substance abuse
  • Dissociation
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm and suicide attempts

If you are living with these or any other psychological disorders as a result of sexual abuse during your childhood, healing is possible. One of the ways you can heal is by taking your abuser to court. I have represented hundreds of sexual abuse survivors. In every case, my goal is to obtain fair financial compensation for my client. More importantly, a successful verdict or settlement can bring clients the feeling that justice has been served.
