You Can Pursue Compensation From the Sexual Abuser
Sexual abuse can take a physical and psychological toll on its victims. It can lead to a significant physical recovery, which can lead to extended periods of time when you cannot return to work. We help assign financial liability to the at-fault party for your:
- Medical care
- Income loss
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
When we represent you, we make sure every expense you are entitled to is included in your list of recoverable damages. We also fight hard to ensure you are favorably compensated for your physical, emotional, and financial injuries.
Get Help From Our Team Immediately
Recovering from sexual abuse can be a years-long process. Cleveland Clinic research cites post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as one of many long-term consequences of sexual assault or abuse. Therefore, we take immediate action to help you cope with its short- and long-term aftermath.
We also act quickly because a statute of limitations defines how long you have to file your lawsuit. If you do not file within the allotted timeframe, you could lose the ability to seek compensation. Many factors can alter the filing deadline, so the best way to understand yours is to review your sexual abuse case with a member of our legal team.

We are Here to Help Victims who Have Been Sexually Abused
Any type or amount of unwanted sexual remarks, behavior, fondling, or touching is a form of sexual abuse. We help you fight for compensation if you suffered from one of these abuses or if you were victimized in one or more of the following ways:
- Sexual harassment
- Acquaintance assault
Forced, non-consensual sexual behavior is always against the law. When a person in a position of authority over you takes advantage of that influence, we help you hold them accountable for the impact of their actions.
