For too long sexual assault has been causing pain and suffering where victims don't feel heard. The abuse has been covered up and survivors have been intimidated or silenced. In reality, if you have been sexually abused, you have options and a powerful voice. By speaking out you can help others and enact a change. Some of the many types of sexual abuse cases and victims we have represented include:
The Catholic church and other religious organizations in Little Rock, Arkansas, and across the country should be safe havens where children and adults can learn and grow. Unfortunately over the last few years, child sexual abuse in the Catholic church has become more prominent. The abuse has been hidden and victims have been silenced. If you or a loved one has been sexually abused by a member of the Catholic Church or other religious organization, we want you to be heard.
As a child, you also expect schools to be a safe place to learn and make friends. Perpetrators of sexual abuse get positions of power in schools, where they have interactions with children. This can include teachers, coaches, or other members of staff or visitors. Molestation can lead to poor school performance and other behavioral issues. Our law firm aims to hold perpetrators accountable and protect future children from a similar experience.
Sports are another place where abuse has been in the news over the last few years. Coaches and staff need to be properly vetted to ensure no criminal past or accusations from previous employment. Coaches are often one-on-one with athletes and children look up to them for training. Unfortunately, this close contact can be misused by perpetrators who take advantage of the child with the promise of excelling or better training. Sexual abuse can happen across many sports, with some of the most recent in the news including gymnastics, wrestling, swimming, and diving.
Our law firm represents all types of sexual abuse cases. Our lawyers are here to make sure you are heard. By speaking out against your assault, you can help others avoid a similar situation. Whether it was rape, abuse, or sex trafficking, legal action can be taken to hold the criminal or third party accountable. Contact us today to learn more from an experienced attorney in a free consultation.
We understand that you may have questions about filing a sexual abuse civil lawsuit, prison sentences for perpetrators, financial compensation you may be able to receive any medical treatment after being sexually abused. Our attorneys have answered some of the most common questions we receive. If you or your family has other questions do not hesitate to call our office today for a free consultation around your case. We look forward to building an attorney-client relationship with you.
A criminal lawsuit has the goal of charging the perpetrator with the crime, taking them to court for a judge or jury to convict. This will likely result in prison sentences as part of the penalty.
A civil lawsuit aims to help the victim receive compensation for the crime that was committed. One of our experienced attorneys will be able to help guide you through the law and help determine which type of lawsuit is best suited for your specific case.
Children who have been sexually abused may exhibit behavioral changes. These changes can also be common in adults who have suffered abuse or rape.
Sexual abuse can cause different injuries and lasting effects for every victim. Some of the most common our clients have suffered include:
It is possible to hold a third party liable for your sexual abuse and injuries. Owners of the business, medical facility, or schools can be negligent in their hiring process or supervision and thus be held liable in a lawsuit.
In Arkansas, there is no time limit or statute of limitations on sexual indecency involving a child. Sexual assault in the first degree or second degree involving a minor also has no limit. Contact an attorney to learn more about the specifics relating to your case.
If you or a loved one has recently survived an act of sexual violence or child sexual abuse, we understand the anguish, frustration, and uncertainty you may be feeling. It’s difficult to know how to respond in the aftermath of such a traumatic and heinous crime. That’s why our lawyers take pride in helping guide survivors of sexual crimes through the difficult recovery period following their attacks.
We understand the importance of building an attorney-client relationship and the personal nature of your case. While financial compensation cannot undo the pain you have suffered, it can help pay for professional services in counseling, physical therapy, and other expenses. We will fight for you and hope to take the pressure off of your shoulders.
