Legal Help For Victims Of Dr. Michael Tyshkov
Were you or a loved one sexually assaulted by Dr. Michael Tyshkov, a prominent pediatrician in Summit, New Jersey? Our experienced New Jersey sex abuse attorneys are here to help. You are not alone. We understand the powerful and painful emotions associated with sexual assault. You may be feeling a complex mix of anger and fear, shock and embarrassment. These are natural reactions to a terrible trauma. You did nothing wrong.
This was not your fault. You were taken advantage of by someone you trusted. You did not deserve what happened to you. The only person who deserves blame is the man who abused you and the medical practice that failed to stop the misconduct. We believe that you deserve justice. While Dr. Tyshkov is now being held accountable for his alleged misconduct by the criminal justice system, he has yet to be held to account directly to his victims.
Your Rights As A Sexual Assault Survivor
As a survivor of sexual assault, you have powerful legal options. Thanks to New Jersey's strong tradition of civil law, you may be eligible to pursue a private civil lawsuit against Dr. Tyshkov and his medical practice. This is your right as a survivor in New Jersey. You have the power to hold your abuser accountable in a court of law.
We can help you prepare and file your civil lawsuit. In a lawsuit, you can secure valuable financial compensation to support your recovery. Many sexual assault survivors benefit from years of therapy and other costly services. We believe you deserve to be compensated for the harm that was caused to you. You don't have to go through this process alone.
Note, however, that time may be limited. While New Jersey's legislature has passed monumental new legislation to extend the state's statute of limitations for sexual misconduct crimes, some claims may still be restricted by older statutes. Don't hesitate to explore your legal options. The time to act is now.
