Property Owners Have a Responsibility to Protect You
Sexual assault injury cases are often
premises liability cases. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that parking lots,
ramps, stairwells, and other out-of-the-way places on their property are
adequately lit and secured to prevent violent attacks. If you were injured
under these circumstances, it is your right to pursue a
personal injury claim.
Hold Perpetrators Responsible for Their Actions
Anyone could become a sexual predator, but people in positions of authority
are more inclined to take advantage of those in their charge. Unfortunately,
this sometimes means that people entrusted with our care become predators
rather than trusted mentors or supporters.
When someone is in a position of authority over others, either in the workplace,
at school, or in a residence, they may feel as if they can manipulate
or overpower their subordinates. People who commit sexual assault often
think the victim will be too ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone and
they may even make an effort to encourage those fears. Sexual predators
may threaten their victims, tell them that nobody will believe them, or
try to play off the whole ordeal as if it was unimportant. In any case,
if you or someone you love was abused, you have a right to speak out and
Sexual assault perpetrators can take many forms, including:
- Teachers or Professors
- Pastors or Priests
Those responsible for sexual assault crimes, of any magnitude, can and
should be held responsible for the damage they cause. Because of their
position of authority over their victims, most sexual predators feel entitled
or above the law. Thankfully, our sexual assault attorneys have the experience
and knowledge necessary to persecute perpetrators to the fullest extent
of the law.
Our team firmly believes that individuals who take advantage of their students,
subordinates, or patients should face serious repercussions for their
wrongdoing. We understand how difficult it can be to come forward and
speak out against your abuser, which is why we want to provide you with
the voice you need to seek justice and fair compensation.
