Contact our law office, Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to speak with a compassionate attorney during a free consultation to discuss your legal options, which may allow you to recover a monetary settlement.

Sexual Abuse Takes on Many Forms

Abuse and assault are often used interchangeably. When preceded by the word “sexual,” these acts refer to any unwanted, undesired sexual activity, which can include:

  • Child sexual abuse
  • Rape
  • Clergy abuse of a sexual nature
  • Inappropriate sexual remarks or touching
  • Having sexually explicit photos or videos of yourself disseminated online

The list above is quite brief and far from exhaustive. Really, any non-consensual sexually oriented activity could be added to the list above. So, if you’ve been mistreated, consider reaching out to our firm to discuss what happened and whether you have a viable civil case.

Sexual Abuse Has Long-Term Impacts on Victims

Much like any other traumatic event, a sexual assault can leave a lasting, negative impression on victims. One of the most common impacts is how such an occurrence affects a person’s mental health. It’s not uncommon for victims to receive the following diagnoses:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Many victims may additionally pick up unhealthy habits after a sexual assault, such as overeating, drinking alcohol, doing drugs, and cutting. It’s not uncommon for those who are sexually abused to also become suicidal.

While mental health treatment can help victims, finding the right practitioner who offers the right type of therapy that can help can be costly. This is where it can be helpful to have an attorney like ours on your side to assist you in paying for this care as well as any other damages you may have.
