Compassionate Sexual Abuse Attorneys

There are no words to describe the bodily, psychological, or emotional torment that sexual abuse survivors are forced to endure. This is especially the case for young children who were left defenseless and even unable to communicate the abuse they have suffered from. According to recent estimates from the Crime Victims Center (CVC), there are over 60 million childhood sexual abuse survivors in the United States. Child sexual assault survivors often fail to comprehend what they have endured and cannot realize that they did not do anything wrong. Oftentimes, younger victims do not even tell their parents because they are afraid of being punished. Even adult victims can feel blameworthy or humiliated for sexual assaults and fail to come forward about the transgression.

Unfortunately, far too many sexual abuse survivors suffer in silence, constantly feel ashamed, and may even blame themselves. Even long after the abuse concludes, the brutal emotional trauma can still have dire consequences on a survivor’s self-worth and overall well-being. It can take many years of rigorous psychological treatments, such as counseling and therapy, before victims can learn how to cope with their torments.

Common Types Of Sexual Abuse Common Types Of Sexual Abuse

Regretfully, sexual abuse happens all too often. For a very long time, this type of assault was ignored or disregarded because the abused were too frightened or humiliated to come forward. In recent years, we have witnessed that pursuing criminal charges and civil litigation against abusers are some of the best ways to keep them from harming others. Victims of abuse are also able to obtain monetary compensation for their pain and suffering as well as other damages. Sexual abuse can occur in various ways, such as verbal, emotional, or physical attacks of a sexual nature. While anyone can fall victim, children, spouses, mental health patients, and the elderly are the most vulnerable. With the support of the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s veteran, sexual abuse attorneys, you can hold your perpetrator liable in civil court, even if he or she was found not guilty in criminal court. Sexual abuse can comprise of the following:
