Sex assault is a crime.
Victims of sexual assault suffer traumatic and often lifelong injury.
Sex assault is an assault upon a victim’s person . . . whether it is harassment, unwanted touching or contact, or rape. . . simply, a sexual act of any kind without a victim’s consent.
Sexual assault may involve children, juveniles or disabled adults, who cannot consent to any sexual contact with an adult because, under the law, the adult was in a position of trust, or where the ages of those involved means that there is no possible legal consent to any sexual contact.
Victims of sex assault need the representation of good lawyers to counsel, advise, assist, and pursue litigation against those responsible. Assault often involves persons known to the victim and is a betrayal of trust, and often a betrayal by other individuals or businesses whose negligence makes them responsible as well for the sexual assault . . . and liable. We, at Frederick | Ganderton, litigate sexual assault claims against the perpetrators of the assault, as well as all others who also bear responsibility , and liability, for the sex assault, which includes businesses, schools, organizations, churches, and others who negligently failed to protect the victim by hiring a perpetrator, failing to supervise a perpetrator, retaining a perpetrator despite knowing better, and even assisting the perpetrator through inaction or, worse yet, covering up.
