Richmond Sexual Abuse Lawyers

The emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions for survivors of sexual abuse can be devastating and long-lasting. As a result of being taken advantage of by a trusted authority figure or by someone upon whom they were dependant, victims of sexual abuse often develop debilitating mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The symptoms of these and other resulting mental health disorders can lead to physical, social, and financial challenges.

Many survivors of sexual abuse rely on unhealthy, self-destructive coping mechanisms in order to try grappling with their trauma. Sexual abuse is one of the greatest determining risk factors for:

  • Alcoholism
  • Substance abuse
  • Personality disorders
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal ideation
  • And more

Symptoms of mental health disorders developed after being sexually abused could make it difficult for survivors to complete their education or vocational training, find stable employment, or pursue career advancement opportunities. In addition to the costs of psychological counseling, psychiatric treatment, prescriptions, and other necessary treatments, survivors of sexual abuse may incur financial losses related to lost wages, failure to reach their potential, and reduced future earning capabilities.

If you are a survivor of sexual abuse in Richmond, it is important to know that there are resources available to you to help you cope with your emotional and financial burden. By working with our Richmond sexual abuse lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against your abuser and any other parties or entities who might be responsible for the damage done to you.

In addition to individual abusers, organizations and employers may also be held liable for sexual abuse if they are found to be contributorily negligent. For example, an employer may be held liable if they knew or should have known that an employee was engaging in sexual misconduct and failed to take appropriate action to stop it.
