When a child has been harmed and abused by someone at a daycare, school, church, or other organization, it is important that the parents of that child learn about the rights victims of child abuse have.  Watch this video to learn what types of damages child abuse victims are entitled to.

Under Florida law, child abuse victims have the same legal rights as adults. Although children cannot bring lawsuits, as they will have to file the lawsuit through a parent or guardian ad litem, they are still entitled to the same types of damages as adults. These damages can include compensation for their medical expenses, psychiatric care and treatment, psychological services, and many other types of damages.
