Sexual Abuse Related:
The criminal court system is designed to punish perpetrators of sex abuse, however, this does not heal the emotional scars of victims that can last a life time. No amount of financial compensation can completely heal these wounds, however, seeking compensation can help victims of sexual assault and abuse move forward with their lives by helping pay for counseling or other medical related expenses.
In order to obtain financial compensation, victims of sexual crimes must file lawsuits in civil court. Not only does filing a lawsuit give the victim an opportunity to regain financial compensation, but it can help prevent the person who did the crime from harming another person. Our Fresno and San Diego attorneys at Wagner and Jones understand the difficult situation of our clients and have experience in pursuing legal action against those who have sexually abused them. We take special steps in handling the sensitivity of the case and emotional issues of our clients as well as protecting them as much as possible.
