Veterans Sexual Assault Attorney
Military service may result in a variety of personal harms leading to disabilities. A sexual assault is a very private matter that many people feel uncomfortable in discussing with others. Feelings of shame, regret, embarrassment, and even anger occurs after such a traumatic and life-changing event. Those feelings are compounded when the sexual assault occurs while someone was in the service. Most of the time, these assaults go unreported due to either embarrassment or fear of retaliation.
After someone suffers a sexual assault, many times they continue to relive the event and may even suffer from the residuals. The individual may suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder, or one of many depressive disorders.
