Sexual Abuse Information From The Abel Firm

"I Was Sexually Abused, Now What?"

Were you Sexually Abused? How The Abel Firm Can Help You

Sexual abuse in any form is an assault. It victimizes survivors, causing lasting physical and emotional harm and lasting psychological and emotional damage. When this occurs, it is important to seek help from a San Francisco Sexual Abuse Lawyer.

Victims of sexual abuse have a right to financial compensation under state law for the trauma they have endured. Although a verdict or settlement cannot change the past, it can help survivors regain their lives.

If you or someone you love has been sexually abused in any way, it is essential to seek the advice of an experienced California sexual abuse lawyer. The skilled and compassionate attorneys at The Abel Firm have years of success in gaining justice for sexual abuse survivors. Contact a member of our team for a free and confidential case evaluation.

People who have suffered sexual abuse can feel paralyzed and powerless. They may be burdened with feelings of shame, guilt, or responsibility; fear of not being believed; shock and other trauma responses; conditioning by the perpetrator; disability; and sometimes, a lack of understanding that they’ve experienced abuse.

The sooner the victim (or loved one who recognizes signs of abuse) reports abuse to authorities and seeks legal counsel, the sooner the case can proceed. California law, AB 218, which took effect on January 1, 2020, allows victims of childhood sexual abuse to file a lawsuit until they are 40 years of age or up to five years after they discover the psychological trauma they’ve suffered is due to abuse.
