Sex Crime Attorneys

When someone is charged with a sex crime and they are found guilty in a court of law, many of us feel relief that this individual will not hurt someone again and that justice has been served. However, a criminal trial rarely addresses the well-being of the victim and the damage that has been done to their lives following these heinous acts. In these cases, it is often appropriate for victims to pursue restitution with a sex crime attorney for these matters with a civil suit against the liable parties.

At Manly, Stewart & Finaldi, our sex crime lawyers are dedicated to pursuing these types of claims and securing restitution for our clients. Our sexual abuse lawyers have recovered more than 1.5 billion dollars in relief for our clients and welcome the opportunity to confront large corporate and institutional entities in courtrooms to assert our client’s claims.

What Is Considered a Sex Crime?

Sex crimes can manifest in many different forms. Sometimes they are the sole action of an individual, other times they are the result of an institutional failing of a larger body.

Physical crimes include sexual battery, child molestation or any sexual offense that involves unwanted conduct. Sex crimes can also include non-physical offenses such as the possession of child pornography, online harassment or stalking.

Potential Sex Crime Compensation

At our law firm, our sex crime lawyers know survivors of felony sex crimes do not solely come to us because they want financial compensation. There are many important reasons to seek legal reparations for a sexual offense, such as justice, validation and peace of mind.

However, we also know how difficult it can be to get by with the costs of medical bills, therapy, prescription medications and lost wages from missed time at work. If a sex crime caused you any of these losses, you could be eligible for compensation.

  • Past and future health care expenses
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish and psychological trauma
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Lost income or ability to earn
  • Legal fees and court costs
  • Punitive damages

The civil courts allow plaintiffs to seek recovery for both economic (out-of-pocket) losses as well as intangible, noneconomic losses. As a sex crime survivor, your pain and suffering damages could be significant.

If your case goes to court, a jury may decide the amount of these damages based on factors such as how much the crime impacted you, the nature of the crime and testimony from witnesses close to you.
