Sexual abuse

Aggressive advocacy, outstanding legal expertise, and compassionate representation.

Sexual abuse is an act that can have devastating and long-lasting effects on the victim’s physical, emotional, and mental well-being. If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse, it’s important to understand your legal rights and options for seeking compensation through a personal injury claim.

Sexual abuse refers to any unwanted sexual contact or behavior that is forced upon an individual without their consent. This can include physical contact, such as touching or penetration, as well as non-physical actions, such as sexual comments or suggestions. Sexual abuse can occur in a variety of settings, such as in the workplace, in educational institutions, within religious organizations, or in the home.

Sexual abuse can occur for a variety of reasons, including a desire for power and control over the victim, a need for sexual gratification, or as a form of retaliation or punishment. Perpetrators of sexual abuse can be anyone, including family members, friends, colleagues, or strangers.

In order to pursue a personal injury claim for sexual abuse, the victim must be able to prove that the defendant was responsible for the abuse. This can be challenging, as there may be little evidence beyond the victim’s account of what happened. However, a personal injury attorney can help build a strong case by conducting a thorough investigation and gathering evidence to support the victim’s claims.

If a victim is successful in pursuing a personal injury claim for sexual abuse, they may be entitled to receive compensation for a variety of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses for injuries sustained
  • Lost wages and income due to time off work
  • Pain and suffering caused by the abuse
  • Emotional distress and trauma caused by the incident
  • Punitive damages, in cases where the perpetrator’s actions were particularly egregious

A sexual abuse case can be emotionally and legally complex, and victims may not be fully aware of their legal rights and options for pursuing compensation. Working with a personal injury attorney can help victims understand their rights, navigate the legal system, and maximize their chances of receiving fair compensation.

Sexual abuse is a traumatic and devastating experience that can have long-lasting effects on the victim’s life.  If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse, it’s important to seek help from a personal injury attorney to understand your legal rights and options for pursuing compensation.
