Seeking Justice After Suffering From Sexual Abuse
The act of sexual abuse is not something that should ever be taken lightly by anyone. If a survivor of this type of abuse does not appear to have any physical harm, they can still have mental scars that last for a lifetime. The person responsible for this abuse should be held accountable for their actions beyond the consequences of the criminal justice system.
My name is Daniel M. Chen, and I have been helping survivors of sexual abuse pursue civil lawsuits against their abusers since 2001. I understand how sensitive a time like this can be for a survivor of sexual abuse, and I know how to help them pursue justice as painlessly as possible.
Do Not Undersell Your Trauma
Sexual abuse comes in many different shapes, and it can be easy to act as if what you experienced was not sexual abuse. Sexual abuse can happen to men and women through actions like:
- Assault and harassment
- Nursing home abuse
- Revenge porn (sending illicit photos of another person without their consent to other people or online)
When someone is charged for sexual abuse, they will then face the criminal justice system to determine their innocence or guilt and the consequences that follow. As the victim of this abuse, you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit as your own method of seeking justice.
Your civil lawsuit can pursue compensation for the physical and emotional damages you experienced by compensation for what you have suffered. There is no putting a price on what you have experienced, but the pursuit of justice may help you emotionally recover from your trauma.
Do Not Wait To Pursue Your Claim
It may be challenging to start a civil lawsuit against your attacker shortly after the incident, but there is a statute of limitations in play. You only have two years after the event took place to file a claim against your attacker, making it essential to act sooner rather than later.
