1) The emergency room. It is important to visit an emergency room quickly after an assault takes place so that doctors can test for any sexually transmitted infections as well as for any injuries that may have been sustained during the attack. Emergency room physicians are also trained to gather evidence, which can be important in the event that you decide to file charges or decide to pursue a claim.
2) Doctors and clinics. Clinics or your family physician can help you with long-term healing, including treatment for any injuries that you have sustained. Doctors and clinics also refer you to support groups and other local resources.
3) Support groups. Advocacy groups and support groups can help you meet other people who have survived attacks and can help provide a way to get support as well as counseling and other services if you are suffering from trauma following the attack.
4) Personal injury attorneys. A personal injury attorney can help you file a legal claim if you qualify. This can help you seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills (including future expected medical expenses), lost wages, property damage, and any other losses you have suffered as a result of the attack.
