Societal Costs

Many people are unaware of the prevalence of sexual child abuse in society. While the true extent of sexual abuse inflicted upon children is unknown, one national survey estimated that 27 percent of women and 16 percent of men reported being sexually abused before turning 18. Most estimate that anywhere from 60 to 63 percent of women were sexually abused when they were children. At Kosnoff Fasy, we are aware of the societal costs of sexual abuse and work to minimize the consequences by identifying and confronting abusers.

The societal costs of sexual abuse are pervasive. From the economic loss through the outgrowths of emotional trauma, we work to mitigate these costs by confronting abusers and protecting future victims.

What effects does sexual child abuse have on society? Some have tried to express the effects in dollar amounts -- according to a study called Total Estimated Cost of Child Abuse and Neglect in the United States, sexual abuse of children costs $94 billion annually. The study cites direct costs, such as hospitalization, chronic health problems, and law enforcement; it also cites indirect costs, such as the juvenile delinquency, special education needs, and criminal behavior that are much more common among victims of childhood abuse.

At Kosnoff Fasy, we are dedicated to representing victims of child abuse to protect against and prevent future abuse.
