Learn more about how we can help you in your time of need.

1. You are able to seek compensation for your attack.

We’re civil court attorneys, and though you may also be facing your abuser in criminal court, you could still be entitled to compensation for the attack.

This could be for many things: medical expenses if you were injured in the attack, psychological expenses so you can seek therapy or treatment to help you cope with the attack, and even punitive damages and attorney’s fees.

2. We are in your corner.

We may not fully understand what you’ve been through, but you can bet we will be here to support you every step of the way. We understand that facing your attacker in either criminal court or civil court can be emotionally trying, and we’re here to help you and support you.

We want to help you get your life back to normal in any way possible, and if that includes getting financial assistance to speak to a therapist or seeking attorney’s fees for your criminal case, we are on your side 100%.

3. You can sue more than just the perpetrator.

Depending on how and where the incident occurred, you may be able to seek damages from more than just the person who attacked you. In some cases, if the incident took place at a school, place of business, or other establishment, that entity (for instance, the perpetrator’s employer) could be liable in a negligent supervision claim.

If you’ve been the victim of a sexual assault or abuse, please seek medical and psychological treatment immediately. It’s important to have emotional support at this time in your life to help you cope with your experience and move forward from it.

Let us help you get the compensation you deserve to cover all expenses incurred as a result of your attack so that it doesn’t need to cause you more stress than it already has. Call The May Firm sexual assault attorney today.
