Sexual assault is both a crime and an injury for which you may be entitled to financial recovery. If you were sexually abused in college, you could be entitled to recovery of medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. A lawyer with our firm can help you pursue recovery and will protect your rights.
Why Many Sexual Abuse Survivors May Want to Consult a Lawyer
Our firm represents sexual abuse survivors.
Every survivor should consult a sexual abuse lawsuit lawyer. Reasons to do this:
- To make their voice heard and add their story to others harmed by sexual abuse.
- To seek recovery for damages that they may be entitled to receive.
- To shine a light on dangerous policies or behaviors that may enable a sexual abuser.
- To strengthen their personal recovery by telling their story to a safe and confidential listener.
It is your right to seek legal counsel to hold an offender accountable for your physical, emotional, and financial losses.
How We Can Help
Most people do not have a legal background or experience to fully protect and exert their rights. It is also difficult for many sexual abuse survivors to communicate with the defendant or with the defendant’s lawyer.
D. Miller & Associates, PLLC can help you with:
- Resources and staff who can investigate and evaluate your case.
- Proper valuation of your damages both current and future.
- Deep understanding of the necessary evidence and testimony in a sexual abuse lawsuit.
- Communication with the defendant and/or the defendant’s lawyer.
- Contingency-based legal representation.
Be Aware of the Statute of Limitations
Each state has its own statute of limitations that limits the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit within this time, your complaint will be dismissed. In Texas, Texas Civil Code- Chapter 16 limits victims to two years to act.
There are a couple of factors that may influence the statute of limitations for your specific case:
- Your age at the time of the sexual assault
- If you were previously incapacitated
- New evidence that may affect your case
The law is complex, and it is best if you have a lawyer to protect your rights.
