Queens Sexual Abuse or Rape Law Attorney
Representing Rape and Sexual Abuse Victims and their Families
Victims of rape and sexual assault have a very difficult time emotionally recovering from their attack. Even when the attacker is caught and criminally indicted, victims may not feel whole. While civil legal action cannot take away the wrongdoings and suffering caused by a rape or assault, it provides an avenue for the victims to get closure and justice and monetary compensation while also preserving the safety of other women from suffering the same injustice.
At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our sexual abuse or rape lawyers provide legal assistance to victims of sexual abuse, assault or rape and try everything we can think of to successfully win our cases so that our clients can move on with their lives.
Victims of Rape and Sexual Abuse Have Rights
Rape is a crime of violence, regardless of who committed it. It is defined as non-consensual intercourse committed by physical force, threat of injury or other intimidation. Rape can occur if the victim was unable to make a rational decision because of the effects of drugs or alcohol, thus resulting in sexual acts without the consent of the victim. Rape can also occur in situations where the victim had a pre-existing relationship with the perpetrator.
Victims of sexual abuse or rape may have the right to bring a civil lawsuit against the owner or manager of the building in which it occurred as well as any other person or entity who is responsible for the abuse having taken place.
