Advocating For The Victims Of Sex Trafficking
Many Ohio residents are shocked to learn that Toledo is a major hotbed for sex trafficking in the United States. Our location and interstate highway system make this an epicenter for illegal activity.
At Williams DeClark Tuschman Co. L.P.A., we fight for the victims of sex crimes. Our attorneys will strongly advocate on your behalf and help you find the justice you deserve. We understand both the physical and emotional scars victims suffer and will be available for you each step of the way. Let us help you move past this dark time and toward a better future.
Filing A Civil Claim Against Responsible Parties
In addition to filing a criminal claim for your abuse, you can also file a civil claim for damages. Damages are intended to compensate the victim for the physical and emotional pain suffered from the abuse. This can include ongoing “pain and suffering,” such as long-term emotional distress and anxiety.
You can file a claim against your abuser and against third-party contributors whose actions indirectly perpetuated the trafficking. This could include businesses that allowed trafficking to take place on company property or failed to provide adequate security measures. Hotels, motels and truck stops are common offenders.
Companies should not be allowed to turn a blind eye to the suffering of others. We will help you hold them accountable for their lack of action. Speaking up can help prevent these groups from harming other innocent victims in the future.
Protecting The Vulnerable
Young people and immigrants can be especially vulnerable to the trap of sex trafficking. Toledo ranks highly as one of the main hubs for youth sex trafficking in the United States. These populations may be lured in with false promises of friendship or assistance. Our team helps these groups find their voice and the protection they deserve.
