As much as we may wish otherwise, sexual abuse is a fairly common issue affecting countless children, women, and men across the United States. Sexual abuse comes in many forms, each of which varies in severity. Regardless of the degree to which a person is sexually assaulted, the resulting damage can be extremely traumatic.

When dealing with sexual assault, the damage can be psychological as well as physical, which unfortunately means the harm inflicted can last a lifetime. Although there are several treatments and support groups available aimed at returning sexual abuse victims to their feet, the pain of such an experience will never fully go away.

Fighting Sexual Abuse In All Forms

Sexual assault can take many forms, including, but not limited to:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Unwanted bodily contact
  • Forced sexual acts
  • Non-consensual touching or groping

There are also several ways in which sexual abuse can be nonphysical. The abuser may take or distribute illicit photographs without the victim’s permission, or they may use coercion to force the victim into a sexual situation. In cases involving children, the abuser may expose the child to pornographic images or may take inappropriate photos of the child. Even when abuse is not physical, it can still be exceedingly harmful and invasive.

Identifying Sex Crimes

In many cases, sexual abuse occurs after the victim has been rendered unconscious, either through physical assault or through the use of alcohol or drugs, especially “date-rape” drugs. If any sexual act is not consensual, or if either party is rendered physically incapable of giving consent, the act can be considered a coerced sex crime. If you were violated in any way, you have a right to take your case to an attorney.

Our firm handles various types of sexual abuse cases, including cases against the following:

  • Clergy members or churches
  • Schools and universities
  • Teachers, tutors, and daycare attendants
  • Coaches and trainers
  • Caretakers and nursing homes
  • Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals

Take Action Against Your Abuser Today!

Sexual abuse, in all its forms, is exceptionally harmful. Survivors may endure physical pain, emotional trauma, and psychological distress, all of which can affect their personal and professional lives. The short-term effects can include medical bills, loss of wages, physical pain, and property damage, but the long-term damage is infinitely worse.

Although monetary compensation can help alleviate the strain you face after an assault, we understand that it does not erase the pain you’ve endured. Survivors must live with their trauma for the rest of their lives, regardless of what happens in the courtroom. Because the damage inflicted in sexual abuse cases is so extensive, it’s crucial to take legal action against the liable party as swiftly and as methodically as possible.

Our skilled lawyers can give you a voice against your abuser and we will aggressively seek justice on your behalf. Not only will we pursue monetary damages, but we’ll also fight to put your abuser behind bars so that he or she cannot harm anyone else again. If you want justice for the wrong you’ve suffered, contact our firm.
