Abuse and Sexual Assault
Sexual abuse refers to any sexual activity with a minor initiated by an adult or significantly older individual. This can encompass a wide range of non-consensual behaviors, from inappropriate touching to more severe forms of sexual assault. Such actions not only breach the legal and ethical standards meant to protect children but also inflict profound psychological trauma on the survivors, potentially affecting them for the rest of their lives.
The road to healing for survivors is often long and complex. However, seeking legal justice and holding your abuser accountable can help facilitate recovery. Filing a lawsuit and pursuing legal action against abusers and negligent institutions offers survivors a formal avenue to voice their experiences and seek justice. This can be an essential part of the healing process.
Legal action can also result in financial compensation for the survivor. While no amount of money can undo the harm caused, compensation can support the survivor's journey toward healing by covering the life-long costs of therapy, medical treatment, and other related expenses that arise in the aftermath of abuse, including PTSD.
Moreover, holding sexual abusers and negligent institutions accountable has broader implications beyond individual cases. It sends a strong message that such behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated, potentially deterring future acts of molestation. When institutions are held accountable, it emphasizes the importance of implementing effective measures to protect children under their care. This can lead to systemic changes, including the adoption of stricter safeguarding policies, more rigorous background checks for employees, and comprehensive training programs that prevent abuse.Our Sexual Abuse Lawyers Have Obtained Life-Changing Compensation For Hundreds of Survivors
