By Your Side After A Sexual Assault On Your Campus
For most college students, the education that they receive after high school isn’t limited only to classroom instruction. Living on campus gives these young adults the freedom to explore their independence and develop a sense of self in a safe environment.
Sexual assaults deny victims these opportunities. And, unfortunately, it is common for institutions to deny survivors a voice when sexual assaults occur within classrooms, facilities, residential halls or elsewhere on campus.
At The Nelson Law Firm, I am here to help you find your voice and share your story. I am a steadfast supporter for assault survivors in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. I am not afraid to challenge institutions or individual offenders after they have violated your dignity and your body.
Holding Aggressors Responsible
Although your aggressor may try to convince you otherwise — you are not responsible for your sexual assault or rape. Your actions, your clothes and your words did not cause your assault. The individual responsible for this crime is the person who hurt you physically, sexually and emotionally.
As your advocate, I will counsel you on your best options for filing claims against:
- Fellow students
- Fraternities or sororities
- Professors or teaching assistants
- Coaches, athletic trainers or college athletes
- Resident advisors or dorm
- Other college faculty and staff
I understand you may feel overwhelmed by what you have experienced. When you meet with me, what you choose to share with me will remain confidential until you decide to move forward. Please know that my office is a safe place. Whether you need my assistance with filing a report on campus or filing your claim in court, I am ready to support you.
