The terms “sexual abuse,” “sexual violence” and “sexual assault” are all encompassing and refer to a myriad of crimes that involve non-consensual abusive sexual behavior. Such behavior is often committed by using force or by taking advantage of a person who is vulnerable and unable to defend him or herself. Anyone can become a victim of sexual abuse, including women, men and children. Our Albuquerque sexual abuse personal injury lawyers help victims of sexual violence recover compensation in the aftermath of any of the following types of crimes:
If you experienced unwanted sexual contact that is not mentioned on the list above, it does not mean you do not have a case. Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC seeks justice for any individual who did not give sober, voluntary, informed, enthusiastic, honest, mutual and verbal consent to a sexual advance of any kind.
You are probably aware that you have legal options following a car crash, slip on someone else’s property or accident involving a defective product. Like each of the aforementioned incidences, sexual assault is not your fault. Also like with each of the aforementioned incidences, you have the right to pursue legal remedies through a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator. Instead of filing a personal injury case, however, you would file an “intentional torts” case.
Though the standard of proof is lower in civil cases than it is in criminal cases, you may still find yourself feeling vulnerable, scared and unable to adequately assert your stance in front of a judge and the defendant. Our Albuquerque, New Mexico, law firm will do that for you. For the assistance you need pursuing the compensation you need to get on the road to recovery, contact Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC today.
