Sexual abuse is a very broad term that may be used to describe offensive and unwanted behavior such as conversations that may be portrayed as “locker room talk,” while the term abuse may also be used to describe the most atrocious and inconceivable sexual assaults. Perpetrators of sexual abuse and assault cause devastating suffering to their victims. These effects will often stay with the victim through their entire life. All sexual abuse carries with it physical and emotional consequences for the perpetrator’s victims.
Common Forms of Sexual Abuse
Sadly, there are many different acts of sexual abuse committed by people every day including but not limited to:
- Rape and Attempted Rape
- Domestic Violence and Marital Rape
- If you are married, non-consensual sex is still rape.
- Groping is far too common in society. Such behavior can cause significant anguish to victims and should not be taken lightly
- Date Rape
- While generally thought of as a crime that only happens on college campuses, date rape can be committed anywhere.
- Child Molestation and Sexual Abuse
- Children should be protected by adults. While inconceivable, disturbingly, there are grown-ups in society who sexually and violently prey on the most vulnerable of us.
- Sexual Harassment
- Harassment can be verbal, written, via the internet, or through other forms of communication.
- Elder Sexual Abuse
Unfortunately, those with access to vulnerable elderly adults sometimes prey upon them, even in a sexual manner.
How Can You Make A Sexual Abuser Pay For What They Have Done?
Far too often, cases of sexual abuse go unreported, leaving the abusers free to harm somebody else. Retaining a skilled and compassionate Sexual Abuse lawyer can help you navigate the frightening situation that has been thrust upon you. Assailants need to be held accountable whenever possible. Along with supporting you through these difficult times, our attorneys will pursue compensation from your attacker for the following types of damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills, including those incurred for mental health services
- Lost wages and income
- Permanent or temporary physical disability
- Punitive damages, awarded to victims as punishment of the perpetrator
Navigating the circumstances following a sexual attack or repetitive abuse can be intimidating, but having legal counsel by your side can help you to feel you are not alone.

Our attorneys are understanding, compassionate, and empathetic to your struggle.

Sexual Abuse Stats
Around 70 percent of reported abuse cases involve children under 17 years of age.
Sexual abuse victims come from every demographic, regardless of sex, age, race, or economic standing. Unfortunately, it is widely believed that the majority of sexual abuse cases are never reported, but it is commonly estimated that 8 to 20 percent of America’s population has been abused or molested, in some way, at some point in their lives.
Unfortunately, sexual predators use everyday activities as opportunities to commit sexual abuse and violence. Far too often, sexual predatory behavior occurs in locations where we, as parents, believe our children are safe. Some more common places of attack include:
- Foster Homes and Children’s Homes
- Hospitals and Doctors’ Offices
- Care Facilities
- After-school Programs
- Sports Teams
