Unfortunately, abuse is a big problem in our society. According to the CDC, one in seven children have experienced abuse or neglect in the past year and one in four women and one in seven men experience domestic violence during their lifetime. In addition, one in ten seniors will experience abuse.
Abuse is a crime and the criminal justice system can pursue perpetrators. But survivors may also have the option of seeking a civil claim in court. This can help them seek justice and it allows them to seek compensation for their injuries. If you’re an abuse survivor, we invite you to contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a compassionate, experienced Hollywood personal injury claims attorney.
