Sexual assault awareness and prevention required year-round

Awareness is increasing, but the fight is nowhere near over

April was first named Sexual Assault Awareness Month in 2009. Since then, awareness has grown on just how large the problems of sexual assault and child abuse are. However, the problem continues. The following statistics are a sad and frightening reminder of how much work remains to be done:

  • According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), every 8 minutes a child is the victim of sexual assault
  • Every 98 seconds someone is sexually assaulted, according to the Department of Justice
  • Youngest people are at the highest risk of sexual assault, beginning at age 12
  • One of every six women in America has been the victim of attempted or completed rape

Legal options for victims

Victims of sexual assault may be able to help promote safety through civil lawsuits. By holding accountable institutions which allow sexual assault to occur, whether college administrations, athletic institutions, church group or any other organization, victims can help hold those responsible for allowing abuse to occur accountable.

Year-round advocacy needed

We applaud the efforts of the numerous groups and individuals who worked hard in April, and continue to do so throughout the year, to promote safety and increase awareness of sexual assault and child abuse.

Of course, the message is needed year-round. Fortunately, numerous organizations work diligently around the clock to help victims of sexual assault and to raise awareness of how to prevent sexual assault from occurring.

Client Reviews

Ben and Nate are great guys. They walked me through the whole process, from beginning til the end. The receptionist and very nice. Answer all my questions and concerns. I will refer them to anyone. Their not like other lawyers that talk around the topic. They tell you just how it is or how they believe it will be. Thank you guys so much.

Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!

Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.

When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it's hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn't offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
