Survivors of Sexual Abuse Have the Option to Remain Anonymous
It’s common for survivors of abuse to refrain from taking their case to trial for fear of physical retaliation and shame. Fortunately, there’s a way for you to bring instances of sexual violence to light without making your identity known to the general public.
California Penal Code Section 293 allows victims of sexual assault and harassment to keep their names private when taking legal action against abusers. Our attorneys can help you understand the pros and cons of filing a lawsuit under an assumed name, but the final decision is ultimately yours to make.
Statute of Limitations for Childhood Sexual Abuse Cases in California
Recent legislation has made it possible for survivors of childhood sexual assault to file a lawsuit many years after their abuse occurred. Now, survivors have until their 40th birthday to take action against those who abused and mistreated them during their childhood.
The trauma of childhood abuse can cause victims to repress what happened to them. Some survivors may not remember what they went through until decades have passed. If you have recently realized that you were a victim of sexual crimes as a child, there is a five-year statute of limitations starting on the day that abuse was discovered.
Our Attorneys Handle Every Case With Empathy and and Compassion
Our team understands that victims of sexual crimes often experience depression, flashbacks, and post-traumatic stress disorder for years and even decades after their abuse. That’s why our lawyers never push clients to discuss triggering experiences or pressure anyone into pursuing a case they aren’t prepared to talk about.
When you’re ready to come forward, our compassionate lawyers will be here to listen to your story. Once they’ve heard what you have to say, they’ll focus their efforts on bringing your abuser to justice. Remember, no individual or institution is too powerful for us to take on. Our trial lawyers have gone up against some of the most prominent organizations and won.
