Dallas Sexual Abuse Attorney: Do You Have A Sexual Assault Case?

Have you or a loved one been a victim of sexual assault, sexual exploitation, or sexual abuse?

Sexual assault, abuse, and exploitation have a tremendous impact on survivors and their families. Representing adult and child victims of these sex crimes brings unique legal challenges which are different from other personal injury cases. If you are in need of a Dallas sexual assault attorney, contact us right away for a free consultation.

What to Expect from a Sexual Assault Case

Unlike a criminal case, which is brought by the State to prosecute the perpetrator with the goal of incarceration, in a civil case victims can directly bring legal action against not only their abuser but also the institutions and organizations that aided and abetted the perpetrator in gaining access to the victim in order to recover monetary compensation for their damages.

In civil cases, victims have control of the process with the opportunity to obtain closure by holding the abuser and other responsible third parties accountable for the harm caused. Usually, the victim is able to pursue a case using a pseudonym. This means reporting the abuser, and pursuing a civil case against the abuser usually does not require revealing your information to the public.

If you or your child have suffered sexual assault, sexual abuse or sexual exploitation in an institutional setting, one of the first things to do is to report the abuser to law enforcement – it is important to make sure other potential victims are not at risk.

Sexual Assault Claims Against Doctors and Healthcare Workers

When we go to the doctor, to the hospital, or trust a long term care facility, such as a nursing home, to care for our loved ones, we expect that they are receiving the best care possible. Our worst nightmare would be to find we or someone we love was sexually assaulted.

If you or someone you love was sexually assaulted by a doctor or healthcare provider, we may be able to help.

In the interest of transparency, these cases are very difficult to pursue. Not only is it a challenge to show any kind of proof that the doctor or healthcare worker performed an inappropriate act on someone who was unconscious or is unable to communicate effectively, like an elderly person with certain conditions, but, also, the law is not favorable towards these types of claims.

However, we at Van Wey, Metzler & Williams try to help everyone we can and we will listen to the facts of your case to see if it could entitle you to financial compensation.

"I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers"

April of 2023, we finally reached a conclusion to the case and it was wildly successful by all accounts from those I know who live this profession in and out, every day. I can’t lie; "winning" my case didn’t make my loss less painful or my world bright and shiny. But having a team of attorneys that care and that explored every avenue of redress helped me feel like I was heard and valued and that my loss was unique and individual and worth pursuing. I honestly don’t believe I could have gotten a better result with any other lawyers. It’s not easy and it’s never simple to fight a system legally entrenched to quash due process in cases of potential culpability. The good news is, I didn’t have to. Luke and the folks at Van Wey, Metzler, Williams did the hard work and heavy lifting. I would recommend their representation without hesitation!
