How a College Sexual Abuse and Assault Lawyer Can Help

There are many benefits to hiring an attorney for your college sexual abuse or assault case. You will have the mental freedom to focus on recovering while your lawyer handles complicated legal matters for you, such as collecting evidence and negotiating for maximum compensation from an insurance provider. A lawyer can conduct an in-depth sexual assault investigation, hire experts to testify, and take other measures to build the strongest possible case against a college or university in Illinois on your behalf.

What Should I Do if I Am a Victim of College Sexual Assault?

If you get sexually assaulted on a college campus or in off-campus housing, know that it is not your fault and you are not alone. Help is available. Start by telling someone about the incident, such as a trusted friend or family member. Report the sexual assault to your college’s Title IX Officer. In an emergency, notify law enforcement such as the campus police department.

Get medical care if you have any physical injuries or for a sexual assault forensic exam. This type of medical exam can collect evidence of the attack and your attacker. Seek mental health services to help you cope with the trauma of sexual assault, such as therapy, counseling, and support groups.

To prepare for a civil claim, gather as much information about the assault as possible, such as a description of events, incident reports, medical records, photographs, and witness statements. When you are ready to seek justice through the legal system, bring your evidence to a free consultation with one of our attorneys.
