Statute of Limitations in a Sex Abuse Case
We got a call in our Lutz office the other day from a client who asked a very good question: What is the statute of limitations for a sexual abuse or human trafficking claim? The statute of limitations in the state of Florida is very specific with regard to these claims: you have until seven years after you’ve reached the age of majority (which in the state of Florida is 18 years) to file a claim. There are also other factors that may influence how the statute of limitations is applied in Florida.
If you are the unfortunate victim of a human trafficking or sex abuse case, give us a call for a free consultation and evaluation of your claim.
Cost of a Sexual Abuse Claim
Sex abuse and human trafficking are rampant throughout the state of Florida. It’s an unfortunate and tragic situation. We had a caller the other day who called us in our Tampa office and asked, “How much will a case cost me?” She had a case where she had been the victim of human trafficking and was very concerned about financially funding this type of case. The answer to that, generally speaking, is our law firm will advance the cost of investigation.
If you have a claim, we will advance those costs in order to pursue your claim. Most of the time, these cases are handled on a contingency fee basis; this means if we do not recover any damages for you, we will not get paid. Give us a call and we’ll offer you a free evaluation of your case.
Choosing The Right Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Sex abuse and human trafficking is rampant in the state of Florida. It’s a very unfortunate set of circumstances. If you have a case like that, or if a loved one has a case, and you want to hire an attorney to investigate a civil liability claim, you need to have an attorney that’s going to speak with you directly. Communication is critical. These cases are very fact-intensive. Investigation is usually required, and you want someone who you can trust. The way you build the trust and rapport with the attorney is by speaking with them.
