Sexual Assault Victim Lawyer in Florida Dedicated to Empowering Survivors and Fighting for the Justice They Deserve
Sexual violence affects thousands across the United States every year. Traumatic repercussions from a rape or sexual assault can reverberate long after the event, altering lives and silencing voices. At RTRLAW, we understand the profound impact such experiences have on victims, and we’re deeply committed to helping sexual assault survivors find their voice, reclaim their power, and seek justice.
Understanding the Prevalence of Sexual Violence
In addition to the physical pain and injuries incurred from rape or sexual assault, the emotional and psychological trauma and helplessness that a victim suffers, sometimes for the rest of their lives, is almost incalculable. Victims of sexual violence often require initial hospitalization following the attack and extensive professional counseling and support from friends and family members, social workers, and strong advocates, including personal injury attorneys.
To understand the prevalence of sexual violence better, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center reports that:
- 20% of U.S. women experience rape during their lifetimes (one in three victims of rape experienced it for the first time between the ages of 11 and 17);
- 25% of U.S. men experience some form of sexual violence in their lifetimes (one in four victims experienced it for the first time between the ages of 11 and 17);
- 81% of women and 43% of men experience some form of sexual harassment and/or assault in their lifetimes; and
- The estimated lifetime cost of rape is $122,461.00 per victim.
RTRLAW’s experienced and qualified personal injury attorneys and caring, compassionate, and helpful legal team offer our clients the support they need to deal with the physical, emotional and psychological tolls from a rape or sexual assault. In Florida, if the assault happened at a hotel, parking garage, or other commercial location (e.g., office building, school, restaurant or night club, church, etc. ), whether due to a lack of safety and security measures at the premises or another form of negligence, our attorneys will fight to hold those accountable and get our clients the compensation and justice they deserve.
Offering Comprehensive Support for Victims
RTRLAW’s commitment goes beyond traditional legal representation. We understand the multifaceted challenges that victims of sexual violence face and provide a holistic approach, ensuring that survivors receive comprehensive support throughout their journey to justice, including:
- Immediate Assistance: In the aftermath of an attack, a survivor’s health and safety are paramount. RTRLAW guides and advises victims, to ensure they’re in a safe environment and seek timely medical care, which are crucial for both well-being and evidence collection.
- Legal Aid: With deep legal experience in personal injury law since 1988, RTRLAW’s attorneys are prepared to navigate the complexities of Florida civil law. We understand the importance of acting swiftly, especially given the statute of limitations on sexual assault claims in the state. We’re also well-versed in the implications of “Donna’s Law” for child victims and can provide clarity and guidance on these matters.
- Empathetic Counsel: Beyond the legalities, we recognize the emotional and psychological toll of sexual violence. At RTRLAW, we don’t just represent you in court; we stand with you, offering a supportive environment to address any concerns, anxieties, or fears.

Extending our Services to Diverse Cases
At RTRLAW, we recognize that sexual violence manifests in a myriad of situations, affecting people from all walks of life. Our extensive experience in handling a wide variety of cases uniquely positions us to offer targeted guidance and advocacy tailored to each specific circumstance, such as:
- Rideshare Service Assaults: With the surge in popularity of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft, we’ve unfortunately seen an increase in related assault cases. Our attorneys are well-equipped to navigate the complexities and hold these companies accountable for any negligence, ensuring survivors get the justice they deserve.
- Educational Campus Incidents: Sexual violence on educational campuses, spanning from preschools to prestigious universities, is a significant concern. Whether it’s a case of student-to-student abuse, misconduct by faculty or staff, or a lack of security at the facility, RTRLAW is committed to safeguarding the rights of survivors and promoting safer learning environments.
- Youth & Religious Organizations: Institutions like sports teams, youth clubs, community groups and religious bodies should be pillars of trust and safety. Regrettably, breaches in this trust occur. We’re dedicated to bringing such abuses to light, ensuring that organizations are held accountable and that preventative measures are established.
- Workplace Harassment and Assault: Sexual violence isn’t restricted to personal settings. The workplace can become a ground for such incidents, from subtle harassment to overt assault. Our team is adept at handling cases that intersect with employment law, ensuring survivors’ rights are protected and that workplaces are held to the highest standards of safety and respect.
- Failures of Mandated Reporters: Professionals who are required by law to report suspicions or knowledge of abuse but fail to do so can cause significant harm. We are committed to holding such individuals or institutions accountable, ensuring that future potential victims are better protected.
