Sexual Abuse: You are Not Alone
If you are an Irvine sexual abuse survivor, you very well may feel isolated and alone. The stark reality is that you are not alone. More than 50 percent of U.S. women report being the target of sexual abuse or sexual violence during the course of their lifetimes. Almost 25 percent of all men indicate that they have been the targets of sexual abuse or sexual violence during their lives. This is an extraordinary segment of the population.
33 percent of women report that they were the target of completed or attempted rape at some juncture in time between the ages of 11 and 17. Over 730,000 people in the United States report being raped or threatened with rape during the course of any given year. It is estimated that a considerable number of rape survivors do not report their experiences to law enforcement.
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center indicates that the lifetime costs of being a survivor of rape is over $120,000. These losses include everything from lost wages to medical expenses (including for mental health therapy). Part of obtaining justice and accountability as a survivor of sexual assault is obtaining suitable compensation for injuries, damages, and losses of all types.

How Does a California Sexual Abuse Case Work?
A California sexual abuse case can be a complex and challenging matter. The manner in which a California sexual abuse case is pursued depends upon the surrounding facts and circumstances underlying the case itself. By way of example, if a sex abuse case arose in a setting like a school or church, a claim might be filed with an insurance company. Ultimately, a California sexual abuse case may end up in court in the form of a lawsuit
The reality is that due to the complexities of a California sexual abuse case, there is a great deal of room for error. If a mistake is made in pursuing a claim, a survivor can forever be precluded for obtaining justice and accountability in a case. The surest way to prevent an unnecessary mistake in a claim or case is to retain the services of a skilled, seasoned Irvine sexual abuse attorney.
