New York Sexual Abuse or Rape Law Attorney

Getting Rape and Sexual Abuse Victims the Legal Help They Deserve

It is very difficult for victims of rape or sexual assault to deal with their emotional injuries. The horrendous experience will leave both physical and mental scars that will forever stay with the victim. Although there is some sense of relief when their attacker is caught and criminally indicted, victims may still not get the closure they need to move on with their life.

Although getting money damages may not be the central focus, it will allow the victim to feel whole while also preserving the safety of other victims who suffered the same injustice at the hands of the attacker.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our New York sexual abuse or rape attorneys provide legal assistance to victims of sexual abuse, assault or rape victims and try to provide as much support as possible to our clients as possible.

Legal Rights of Victims of Rape and Sexual Abuse

Regardless of who commits an act of rape or sexual abuse, it is a criminal action that deserves punishment. Rape is legally defined as intercourse that is non-consensual and committed by any degree of physical force or intimidation. An individual may be raped even if they are unable to make a rational decision due to the effects of intoxication, as long as the sexual act was committed without their consent. It may also happen if the victim has had any type of pre-existing relationship with the attacker.

In addition to criminal prosecution, victims of rape and sexual abuse may also have the right to bring a civil lawsuit against the attacker. Additionally, in many cases, they may also bring a civil suit against the owner of the property where the incident occurred.

Filing a Civil Claim on Behalf of Victims of Sexual Abuse and Rape

It is imperative that victims of sexual abuse or rape never blame themselves for the incident. It is never something the victim did or did not do that ultimately caused the attack. This is important because most victims blame themselves for the attack, thinking that if they had done something differently or did not partake in a certain action they would not have been attacked.

We understand that rape and sexual abuse cases are delicate matters that deserve compassion and empathy.
