Fighting For Victims Of Sexual Abuse
All victims of sexual abuse suffer devastating and lifelong memories. Unfortunately, this type of abuse is more common than most think, especially in medical care facilities – including drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, where residents are particularly vulnerable. That is why our legal team at Schimmel & Parks, APLC, is here to represent those who have become victims of sexual abuse while seeking treatment at rehab facilities.
If you or someone you love has been sexually harassed, inappropriately touched, or has felt violated by a health care professional or staff member of a rehabilitation facility, it is crucial you seek experienced legal counsel right away. At Schimmel & Parks, APLC, our lawyers are dedicated to fighting for those rights of those harmed by careless individuals. Based in Sherman Oaks and serving throughout California, we offer free initial consultations in these matters so that you can learn your legal options before being obliged to retain us.
Common Signs Of Sexual Abuse In Rehabilitation Centers
If your loved one is seeking help from a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, it is crucial you keep an eye out for potential signs of sexual abuse. Because many patients of these types of facilities are not completely coherent, they may not understand what has happened even if they have become the victims of sexual abuse.
Below are some common signs of sexual abuse:
- Bruising near private areas such as inner thighs, breasts and abdomen
- Irritation near the genitals
- Itching near the genitals
- Bleeding from the genitals
- Difficulty walking
- The presence of a new sexually transmitted disease
If these or other signs of abuse manifest, we can help pursue compensation – and justice.
