Warning Signs Of Abuse

California Molestation Prevention Attorneys

In our investigation and litigation of child sexual abuse claims at Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP in San Francisco, we have found that there are warning signs of child abuse that parents, guardians, relatives, friends and caretakers should be on the lookout for.

Warning Signs of Child Abuse

Here are many of the possible verbal, behavioral or physical manifestations of child sexual abuse:

  • An unusual amount of questions about sexuality
  • Aggressive or uncharacteristic sexual behaviors toward family members, friends and pets
  • Evidence of physical trauma to the genital or anal area
  • Genital infection or symptom of sexually transmitted disease
  • Mimicking or initiating sophisticated sexual behavior
  • Night sweats and nightmares
  • Panic from flashbacks
  • Excessive masturbation and bed-wetting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Withdrawal from interaction with others
  • Fear of certain places or locations outside the home
  • Frequent unexplained health problems
  • Regressive, infantile behavior
  • Hesitance to be alone with a certain person
  • Self-mutilation

When any or all of these physical or behavioral characteristics become present in an individual, don't delay, immediately take action to secure the safety of your child or loved one.
