Why Do I Need a Lawyer to Handle My Sexual Assault Case?

When taking legal action, it is critical to have an experienced attorney on your side. Victims of assault often do not know their rights or all of the legal options that are available to them, so the first step is to consult someone who can help you figure out the best course of action for your claim. Your attorney will be by your side through the entire process and will make sure that your interests are represented in negotiations and in court.

Additionally, whether the sexual assault occurred at work or on campus means that different aspects of the law are applicable and an experienced sexual assault case lawyer will know how the law will be applied in your case. Finally, whether your sexual assault happened on campus or happened on the job, employers and colleges will likely spend a lot of money to try to put a stop to the litigation or settle for as little money as possible. Your attorney will work to make sure that your voice is heard and that justice is served.

Not every attorney has the experience and knowledge to represent you in your sexual assault case successfully, so be sure to choose a team with the right experience and resources to handle your case.

Campus Sexual Assaults

It is a sad statistic that college women are disproportionately the victims of sexual assaults. While Title IX’s sexual discrimination clause is supposed to protect college women from sexual harassment and sexual violence and lays the responsibility for investigating sexual assaults on college officials, too often now colleges either ignore the reports of sexual assaults or try to sweep it under the rug.

If your college did not actively investigate your sexual assault, tried to get you to retract your claim of sexual assault, or worked to destroy your credibility in reporting your sexual assault, then they can be included along with the perpetrators of the sexual assault in your claim.

Workplace Sexual Assaults

Although most companies have obligatory sexual harassment policies in their employee manuals, the reality is that, sexual harassment or sexual assault is still a frequent occurrence in workplaces across the U.S.

Because many companies only care about the financial stability of the business, and because perpetrators of sexual assaults are often executives at senior and mid-level management, you may find your report of a sexual assault dismissed or shrugged off, even by Human Resources. If your company did not take any action when you reported your sexual assault or they tried to shame you into quitting, pay you to be silent, or terminated you, then they are a culpable party to the sexual assault and can be included in your sexual assault claim.
