Oklahoma Sexual Abuse and Misconduct Lawyer
Unfortunately, there are too many victims of sexual misconduct in our world today. Many victims find it difficult to tell someone about their abuse and may even place blame on themselves. Most face a long struggle to recover and ongoing emotional side effects that can last for years and require intense therapy to overcome.
Victims need to know that while the criminal justice system will render punishment to the sexual misconduct perpetrators, the victims also have the right to seek civil damages to hold their abuser personally responsible for their misconduct. If other individuals facilitated in the sexual abuse or knew about the misconduct, but chose to do nothing to stop it, they also may hold some responsibility. In Oklahoma, the law allows the victims to sue not only their abuser but also the organization or the business that was negligent in allowing the abuse to happen.
