Compassionate Representation For Sexual Assault And Rape Victims in Wisconsin
For every sexual abuse and assault case that makes headlines, there are many more cases of sexual assault and rape survivors who have suffered quietly and never make the headlines. Our criminal justice system can punish perpetrators, and the civil justice system can hold negligent parties accountable and provide help for victims who are unavailable in the criminal courts. Many times a civil lawsuit may better compensate a victim for the immediate and long-term physical and psychological injuries caused by the perpetrator's actions.
GCW lawyers can help victims take a stand and take back their lives through the civil system. Please contact us if you need our help.
