Rape leaves not only physical reminders of the attack, but also often difficult emotional outcomes that make it challenging for victims to get back to everyday activities. It can be devastating to be attacked in this way, and can leave victims physically injured as well as emotionally devastated.
Flaxman Law Group has worked with many rape survivors and has helped them get the legal advice that they need. Many rape survivors assume that there is little that the law can do for them, outside of pursuing criminal charges against the perpetrator. This is not the case. You may have more legal options than you realize, even if your attacker is never found. To find out what options you have, you can always reach Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free, confidential, no obligation consultation.Sexual Assault Survivors in Hollywood Have Legal Options
Rape survivors often have more legal options than they realize after their attack. Depending on the specifics of the case, you may be able to launch a premises liability claim in Hollywood or your community, you may be able to pursue criminal charges, and you may have other legal options as well in pursuing justice as well as compensation in your case.
It is important for rape survivors to consider their future as well as their legal situation. Rape leaves not only emotional upheaval but also considerable expenses in its wake. Rape survivors may lose work because of the injuries that they have suffered and then may need counseling or therapy in order to deal with their grief and injuries. In addition, rape survivors also usually have considerable medical bills after their attack as they strive to heal from the physical impact of the assault. If you have contracted a sexually transmitted infection from the attack or have become pregnant, you may face a lifetime of costs as a result of the attack.Seeking Help After a Sexual Assault
There is no reason for rape survivors to have to pay for all of their injury costs out-of-pocket. If someone's negligence or recklessness has led to the attack, survivors have the right to pursue a legal claim in order to seek compensation as well as justice in your case. Even if the rapist is never caught, you can pursue compensation by speaking with a personal injury attorney about filing a legal claim.
