    Houma Sexual Assault Lawyer

    In addition to the physical injuries, sexual assault victims often experience depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating and sleeping disorders. They may be unable to function in social or stressful situations, which may prevent them from working. Victims may need compensation for medical bills, psychological counseling, and lost income.
