Sexual Abuse Attorney in Hartford

Work With a Hartford Personal Injury Attorney

Sexual violence and abuse can be incredibly traumatizing for victims. Even if the incident may have been reported to local authorities, you still may be suffering from emotional stress and physical injuries. The Connecticut justice system is quick to penalize offenders, but what happens to victims? Sometimes restitution is not enough, and you may need to work with an attorney to help you receive significant compensation to deal with your injuries. At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, a Hartford injury lawyer can gather the details of your case and fight aggressively to obtain the compensation that you deserve.

An attorney can help you obtain compensation if you are experiencing:

  • Pregnancy as a result of rape
  • Depression
  • STDs or AIDS
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Flashbacks
  • Thoughts of suicide or bodily harm
  • Sleep disorders
  • Stockholm syndrome
  • Substance abuse

Most victims of sexual abuse and violence are women or young children; 1 out of every 33 victims is male. Victims of violence, especially younger children and young adults, often receive injuries in the course of the abuse. One of the first things a victim needs to do is receive medical attention from an emergency room or doctor, but these bills can quickly add up. Long-term monitoring may be necessary to ensure the mental well-being of the victim; unfortunately, psychiatric evaluations and therapy are not always covered under insurance policies.

What Occurs After the Assault?

Sexual assault and sexual violence victims may experience multiple complications as a result of an abusive incident or long-term abuse. These effects may require years of therapy, counseling, and monitoring by mental health care professionals, as well as medical doctors, to ensure the safety and well-being of victims. If you are a victim of sexual abuse, allow our Hartford person injury attorney to review your case and offer beneficial guidance.
