Sexual assault can be one of the most difficult types of attacks to recover from. In some cases, survivors do not talk about the event due to the trauma that they suffer. In addition, the physical impact of this type of assault can pursue survivors for years to come. If you have been attacked in Miami or anywhere in Florida, it is important to get legal advice. You will want to pursue your options for compensation, justice, and healing.

Sexual assault can lead to far more than simply sexual injury. It can also lead to severe emotional trauma as well as devastating physical injuries. These types of attacks are often very violent and can lead to serious injury due to the attackers’ aggression and due to attempts at defense. Common physical injuries in a sexual assault can include:
- Spinal cord injury
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head injury
Some of these injuries – such as head trauma and some STIs – can be life-threatening, so it is important for survivors to seek medical attention for their injuries as soon as possible.How Much Will Your Injuries Cost?
Medical treatment can be very costly, as can the incidental costs and legal fees you may need to pay following the attack. If you have survived sexual assault or physical assault, you may need to pay for visits to the emergency room, surgery, medical tests, medical treatment, counseling, rehabilitation, and more. These costs can easily end up costing tens of thousands of dollars or even more.
In addition, you may decide to work with an attorney in order to seek compensation or in order to pursue charges against the attacker. You may have legal fees from these costs and you may need to miss time at work, which can deprive you of income. All of these losses can be substantial, which is why it can be good idea to speak with a personal injury attorney in order to review your options for pursuing fair compensation.
Florida law does allow survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence to seek compensation not only from their attackers but also from other potential liable parties. However, you will generally need to work with personal injury attorneys in Miami or your community in order to build a strong case for your claim.An Honest and Thorough Legal Review of Your Situation
