While recent media attention makes it seem like there is a spike in occurrences of school sexual assault, these reports merely give insight into an alarmingly common problem. Statistics from the official White House website reveal that 19% of women have reportedly been sexually assaulted since entering college, and the real number is likely much higher. While not often reported, it is estimated that a large percentage of men are victimized by this crime as well.

Recent reports in the media have revealed an alarming truth – in many instances of sexual assault, the school is more concerned with defending their reputation and income than with the interests of their students. Victims of sexual assault are often afraid to come forward with claims, as they often experience backlash from other students.
Pursuing financial compensation may seem opportunistic, but we believe it is the minimum you are owed after experiencing sexual assault. When schools put their financial interests ahead of your health and safety, you need to send a message they will understand. By holding them legally accountable for their negligence, you may be able to help protect others from experiencing the same ordeal.

Many people fail to realize the truly devastating impact sexual assault can have. In addition to physical harm, this criminal act can leave deep emotional scars that may impact the rest of a victim’s life.

In many cases, we can help you pursue civil claims against the perpetrator, the school, and associated groups like fraternities.
