Milwaukee Sexual Abuse Lawyer

If you have suffered sexual abuse, you have the right to file an injury claim against your abuser and others who failed to protect you. A Milwaukee sex abuse attorney from our firm can help you get the justice you deserve.

No one should suffer sexual abuse. Everyone responsible for your abuse must be held accountable for their actions. Even those who failed to prevent your abuse can be held to account, and you can hold them financially responsible by filing a sex abuse claim in civil court.

You don’t have to go through the personal injury claim process on your own, though. You can get help with your case by partnering with a Milwaukee sexual abuse lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg.

Filing a Milwaukee Sex Abuse Claim

You may not realize that there could be others responsible for the sexual abuse you suffered. In addition to the perpetrator, those who failed to prevent your abuse may also be held liable for your damages.

For example, if you were sexually assaulted or abused at your place of work, your employer may be held liable for your damages.

Why would your employer be responsible for your sexual abuse in this example? Because employers have a duty to maintain a safe work environment for all employees. If employers fail in that duty, they may be subject to lawsuits.

The following is a list of institutions and organizations where sexual abuse commonly occurs:

You may not fully understand the damages you can seek after sex abuse. You’ve probably suffered greatly because of your abuse.

All of your losses, both financial and non-financial, can be accounted for in a personal injury claim. Here’s a look at common damages requested in Milwaukee sexual abuse claims:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Mental health treatment
  • Decreased quality of life
