New York Sexual Abuse Information

Have You Been Sexually Abused?

Sexual abuse, also known as sexual assault, is unwanted sexual contact without that person's consent. Sexual abuse, occurring at most any age, leaves an array of emotional scars that can last a lifetime and damage the victim's quality of life.

Sexual Abuse Legal Actions

You should consult a New York lawyer experienced in sexual abuse civil cases. Your lawyer can form your case, determine the amount of past, present, and future damages for counseling and other treatments, punitive damages, and serve as your representative in negotiations with the perpetrator. If your perpetrator is convicted criminally, that can help your case.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Sexual Abuse Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
