Hallandale Beach Sexual Assault
Unfortunately, sexual assault and battery in Hallandale Beach and Florida as a whole occurs far too often and as a society we do not do enough to help survivors of this type of crime. Although sexual assault and rape are crimes, in many cases perpetrators (even repeat offenders) get light sentences or are not convicted at all. For survivors, the civil court system offers another option for seeking justice.
The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have been aggressively and successfully litigating sexual abuse claims, insurance disputes, and personal injury cases for a combined total of over sixty years. If you have suffered an injury due to rape, sexual assault, or other attack, contact our law firm for caring and professional legal assistance, representation, and advice. Even if you are not sure whether you wish to file a legal claim, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free, no obligation case review to discuss your options.Seeking Compensation
If your injuries are significant, it is especially important that you get sufficient compensation. The cost of your injuries can be substantial. If you have been attacked, you will likely need to visit the emergency room, which alone can cost thousands of dollars. In addition, you may need to get medical testing as well as medical treatment for any sexually transmitted infections or other injuries you have sustained.
Since sexual attacks tend to be violent, it is not unusual for a survivor to have broken bones, lacerations, or even serious head injuries, soft tissue injuries, or concussions as a result of the incident. It can take weeks or months to heal from these injuries and in some cases these injuries are permanent.
Getting adequate and prompt medical attention can improve the quality of life and can increase the chances of a good recovery. However, medical care costs money and it is important that survivors have the financial resources they need in order to get the best medical care possible. Seeking compensation can be one way to ensure that you have the money needed to pay for the best medical treatment possible.Do You Have a Claim?
Some people think that they are not entitled to compensation in sexual assault cases. Unfortunately, many people don't know their rights and don’t know that they are protected under Florida law. Even if the perpetrator is never caught in your sexual assault case, you may have the right to seek a civil claim against other liable parties in your case.
If the perpetrator is caught, you may be able to seek legal claims as well as seek to have criminal charges pressed against the attacker. If you seek a civil claim, you may be able to seek compensation for your medical costs, future medical expenses, and other expenses related to your attack.
