REVIEW MY CASE

If you are unsure of where to turn, you can start by talking with an experience and skilled Dallas accident lawyer who knows the law and how it applies in your case.

Your Safety and Well-Being Come First 

Anyone who has been sexually abused or assaulted at work can benefit from focusing on the following priorities: 

  • Getting away from the danger: The last thing you want is to suffer continued trauma and abuse. The dynamics of work relationships may make it difficult to remove yourself from danger—perhaps you’re afraid of losing your job or being criticized for being “too sensitive.” Remember that the law is on your side. If your employer turns a blind eye to the abuse or threatens to fire you, they have broken the law. 
  • Getting better: What do you need right now to feel better and heal? Seeking medical treatment for your physical and mental well-being is of the highest importance. You may also find comfort in confiding in trusted friends and family members. Do whatever you need to do to feel safe and empowered. 
  • Keeping records of everything: If at all possible, keep detailed records of when you were assaulted, who was present, and, as difficult as it may be, the specific nature of the assault itself. Save emails, text messages, and other communications you have with the abuser, your manager, your Human Resources representative, and anyone else you have discussed the matter with. These records can prove pivotal in any potential litigation that may arise. 
  • Seeking legal help: You may know that you have rights, but perhaps are unsure of how to assert those rights. You can start by talking with a lawyer who has experience handling workplace sexual assault claims. With strong legal representation, you can take the first step to turning the tables on your abuser, holding all liable parties accountable, and seeking a fair and just amount of compensation for the hardships you have suffered. 

Take Control of the Situation 

One of the most devastating aspects of sexual assault in the workplace is the sense of powerlessness it inflicts on victims. With a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney in your corner, you can seize power in the situation and use the law to hold the perpetrator (and anyone who aided or enabled him or her) fully accountable for their actions. 

With more than 65 years of combined experience, the Dallas sexual assault lawyers at Crowe Arnold & Majors, LLP, are proven allies for people who have suffered harassment, abuse, and other wrongdoing in their place of employment.
