No one has a right to force you into sexual activity. Whether in your Colorado workplace, on a date or while you are out in public or at a party, etc., you have every right to be free from sexual abuse. If you have fallen victim to a sexual assault, your life may never be the same. Many individuals can relate to the emotional and physical trauma that occurs when such crimes are committed.
It’s understandable that you might not want to talk about the sexual assault committed against you, or even think about it. However, it’s also understandable that you want justice. State law provides resources to recovering victims of sex crimes by allowing them to file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court.
Statutes of limitation have been lifted
In the past, there was a set time within which you would have to file a personal injury claim regarding a sexual assault. Those laws have changed. If your assault occurred on or after Jan. 1, 2022, the statutes of limitation have been removed. Recovering assault victims often fear retaliation and experience other issues that cause them to hesitate in filing a claim.
You do not have to handle your sexual assault claim on your own. At Shafner Law, in Colorado, an experienced legal team stands by, ready to provide effective guidance and strong support to help you seek restitution for damages you have sustained. An attorney can speak and act on your behalf, making the litigation process less stressful, and helping you pursue recovery of the compensation you deserve.
