Liability in a Sexual Abuse Case

Things You Should Know About a Sexual Abuse CaseSex abuse cases and human trafficking are rampant in the state of Florida. We got a call in our Lutz office recently from a victim of human trafficking. This is a very serious matter that speaks for itself. Your family is affected; the victim is affected emotionally and physically. The question the client asked us was, “Who’s liable?” Obviously, we have the perpetrator or the various individuals who were involved in the sex trafficking, but, in addition, there are also establishments, such as hotels and restaurants, that harbored the sex trafficking victim and may be liable.

Compensation For a Sexual Abuse Case

Damages for mental anguish and pain and suffering are at the forefront of cases involving sex abuse and human trafficking.

We spoke with them and their family, and the client’s question was, “What kind of damages am I entitled to?” The damages for pain and suffering are what we need to evaluate, and we offer a free confidential consultation to discuss the full extent of the damages you may recover in cases such as these.

Publicly Named During a Sex Abuse Case

We had a very interesting call from a client in Tampa recently. Unfortunately, she was the victim of sexual assault. One of her concerns was whether her name was going to be out there if we pursued a claim. Is it going to be a matter of public record? Generally speaking, a lawsuit is a matter of public record. If you are the victim of a sexual abuse claim, however, do not let that prevent you from pursuing your rights— the same thing goes for family members. There are various ways to protect the confidentiality of a victim’s identifying characteristics, including your name.
