When a sexual assault happens at work, it can be devastating. This is a place where you spend a large amount of time, and you should feel safe and be able to trust those around you. When the assault involves someone you work closely with–and maybe even have to report to– it can be especially difficult to understand, and you may be left with feelings of betrayal, confusion, embarrassment, shame, shock, anger and distrust.
Unlike other injuries that are covered by workers compensation, when you are assaulted at work you have a right to sue for any damages you suffer.
How We Can Help
We understand how overwhelmed and distraught you may feel after a workplace sexual assault, and our compassionate lawyers are here to offer guidance and legal support. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case, answer all your questions and let you know your legal rights. We are here to help you get the compensation you may deserve for your injuries, pain and suffering and lost wages.
We will help preserve evidence to prove the assault and also investigate whether management had enough information to know that there was a possibility of sexual assault. We have found in our experience that often there is enough evidence or complaints and management should have taken steps but did not.
