Serving Victims of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault Throughout Missouri
Victims of sexual abuse and sexual assaults often sustain emotional scars or other injuries that can last a lifetime. Some of the conditions that arise from these traumatizing experiences are Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, depression, and anxiety. Flashbacks can haunt victims of sexual abuse, despite the constant battle to suppress these memories. Many people who have been through this often feel lost or confused. The idea of recuperating financial compensation is probably the last thing on a victim's mind. No amount of money can ever truly right such a dreadful and disgusting wrong. However, recovering damages may help a victim and their families pick up the pieces and put their lives back together. If the abuse or assault was committed by a sexual predator, legal action may help prevent the wrongdoer from harming someone else.
At the law office of Holder Susan Slusher, LLC, we recognize that it can be extremely difficult for a victim to come forward and take legal action. If you or a loved one has been a victim in a tragic case of rape, molestation, or abuse, you should consider contacting an experienced attorney that will only have your best interest at heart.
There Is Still Hope for Children And Adult Survivors
No one ever wants to discover that their child has been the victim of rape, molestation, or sexual abuse. The pain and suffering can be unbearable for the entire family. Where does a parent begin in helping their child and family heal? Rebuilding trust and relationships can be a long road for a victim of sexual abuse. It can take several years for a victim to trust anyone again, especially if the abuse takes place at a government, faith-based, or traditional institution such as: clergy, boy scouts, foster care, or residential care.
In the aftermath of a sexual abuse or sexual assault, there are many steps that need to be taken to begin both the emotional and physical healing. A civil lawsuit may be one of those steps and picking up the phone to call an attorney may be the most difficult part of that step. When you are ready to make that call, please know that we will be there for you when that time comes.
