At Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner, we understand the devastating impact of sexual assault and abuse and are committed to fighting for the rights of survivors. Unfortunately, statistics show that a significant number of individuals in the United States have experienced sexual assault, with 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men affected in their lifetime. Many incidents go unreported for a long period of time due to intimidation or guilt imposed by perpetrators. This can make it impossible for the perpetrator to be criminally prosecuted.
Our legal team can help survivors pursue justice through civil claims against the abuser and any organizations that allow such appalling actions to occur. Pursuing a civil claim may help survivors find solace and attain just compensation while holding those responsible accountable for their actions.
We have experience handling cases involving abusers and their organizations, such as:
- Teachers, staff and schools
- Coaches and instructors
- Nursing homes and caregivers
- Healthcare providers and hospitals
- Clergy members
- Law enforcement officers
- Government employees
Sexual assault or abuse can take various forms, including indecent exposure, non-consensual physical contact, forced sexual acts, rape, and others.
Survivors of sexual assault may experience physical and emotional trauma, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and physical injuries. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can assist them in obtaining compensation for medical expenses, psychological treatment, and emotional distress.
We believe that survivors should not suffer in silence, and we are here to help them take back their power and begin their recovery journey. Contact us today for a free consultation and let us help you seek the justice you deserve.
