Boca Raton, FL Sexual Assault Lawyers

Standing Up for Survivors Since 1988

No one should have to experience sexual assault. Still, despite the fact that advocacy and awareness efforts have popped up from coast to coast, statistics show that a new sexual assault occurs every 68 seconds in the United States.

If you are a survivor of sexual assault, our Boca Raton attorneys at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen are here to provide you with the support you need to take legal action. We will listen to your story with a nonjudgmental, compassionate ear and effectively advocate for your rights in civil court.

Through a civil lawsuit, you could recover compensation for the damages you have suffered. While this cannot turn back the clock and stop the assault from happening, it can help you afford treatment/medical care and settle any related debts. Further, holding the perpetrator accountable may help you gain peace of mind and, thus, help you put the past behind you.

What Is Sexual Assault?

“Sexual assault” is defined as any nonconsensual sexual contact or act. In other words, it encompasses sexual harassment, sexual abuse, sexual battery, molestation, and rape.

A few examples include:

  • Sexual intimidation
  • Indecent exposure
  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Disparaging sexual comments and jokes
  • Attempted and completed rape
  • Nonconsensual sexual touches, regardless of where on the body
  • Making a person carry out a sexual act against their will, such as through coercion or the use of force/violence
  • Any sexual contact or act with someone who is unable to consent, such as a person under the influence of alcohol/drugs or under the age of consent

Sadly, many survivors report that someone they know committed the assault: spouses, former sexual partners, friends, roommates, classmates, coworkers, and even family members.

Gray Areas & Victim Blaming

It is very common for perpetrators of sexual assault to argue there was a gray area or blurred line, then try to use this argument to blame the survivor for what happened. What’s worse is that a survivor’s loved ones may also try to blame them. This is known as “victim blaming,” and it is deeply harmful—it often causes survivors to stay silent about what they have been through. The law is clear on its stance, however: A person is never to blame for being the victim of sexual assault.

If you or someone you love is struggling with speaking up—even if this is because the person is unsure whether they have a case—we encourage you to contact a sexual assault lawyer at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen. Our caring lawyers offer free consultations in which survivors can learn their rights and obtain clarity on what happened in a confidential, judgment-free setting. If you decide that legal action is something you would like to pursue, our team will also help you navigate the litigation process.

Please note: Our consultations are provided without any strings attached. If you do not want to move forward, you do not have to. Regardless, it is best to consult a legal professional sooner rather than later, as there are time limits on filing a lawsuit.

Work with Caring Sexual Assault Attorneys

Depending on the details of your case, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Typically, this involves monies for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and missed time from work and/or school, among other damages. Our Boca Raton team will aggressively advocate for you in the courtroom and boardroom to ensure that your rights are protected, that your compensation is maximized, and that the perpetrator is held accountable.
