You Are Not Alone

Sexual abuse can make you feel completely powerless. While a lawsuit can't change what happened, it can be a first step on the path to recovery.

Did your abuse occur many years ago? 

Changes to Utah Law Offer New Hope for Survivors

Many survivors of sexual abuse do not act against their perpetrators because they do not feel that the legal system is on their side.

The state of Utah has recently extended the statute of limitations for sexual abuse cases to 35 years after your 18th birthday.

This change means you have more time to come forward and hold your abuser responsible for their actions.

Sexual Abuse  Can Happen Virtually Anywhere

The Effects of Sexual Abuse Can Be Lasting and Devastating

Changes in the laws here in Utah have made it easier for individuals who were abused as children to hold responsible parties accountable for their actions. 

Child sexual abuse can affect survivors for a lifetime and cause a range of emotional, mental, and physical effects. 

The long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse are staggering:

  • Female adult survivors are nearly three times more likely to struggle with substance abuse.
  • Depression, suicide attempts, and other psychiatric disorders are much more likely in adults who were sexually abused as children.
  • Obesity, eating disorders, and other physical health problems are also more common amongst survivors. 

Now you may be wondering if a lawsuit can really help...

Our Firm's Unique Approach  to Sexual Abuse Cases

At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, our attorneys understand the devastating, lifelong effects that sexual abuse victims suffer. 

We aggressively represent our clients so that they can receive the justice they deserve. While every case is different, victims of sexual abuse often suffer from depression, marital difficulties, problems with intimacy, self-esteem, and many other traumatic issues. These victims did nothing to deserve or cause these problems.

Even if the authorities did not investigate or decide to pursue criminal charges against the perpetrators of abuse, our attorneys are often able to obtain settlements for our clients. 

Thank you for all your help!

"I'm so glad I was referred here by a previous client. The attorneys were great and professional. Made something I thought would be stressful as easy on me as possible...Thank you for all your help! I appreciate all the support I received from everyone." Cristina H.

Worried about the idea of filing a lawsuit? 

Many Women Are Abused, But Very Few Come Forward

We Understand  That Coming Forward Can Be Difficult 

Sexual abuse victims are often hesitant to come forward about abuse even years after it occurs. Most often, victims worry about:

  • Lawsuits becoming a part of the public record 
  • Retaliation from the perpetrator 
  • Feeling ashamed 
  • Others denying that the abuse happened 
  • Others minimizing the gravity of the abuse 
  • The general consequences or repercussions of reporting abuse 
  • Not knowing what steps to take next 

No matter what the circumstances of your abuse are, we want you to feel safe, heard, and protected. In addition to legal representation, we can provide the resources and tools to help you feel more confident in pursuing a case. 

Most Cases Can Resolvewithout a Trial 

Individuals who have been abused need to understand that most of these cases resolve without having to go to trial. Our attorneys can often recover fair, just compensation in a settlement. 

However, the trial lawyers at our firm have the expertise and resources to win at trial when needed, and we are not afraid to take your case to court to achieve the results you need. 

For this reason, sexual abuse victims should call Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton immediately for a free consultation.

Take the First Step  Towards Healing

We know that financial compensation can never erase the pain and suffering you have experienced as the result of sexual abuse. 

However, a lawsuit can offer a way to bring the wrongdoing of an individual or an organization to light and protect others from suffering the same distress. 

If you decide to pursue a lawsuit, our team will stand by you every step of the way and dedicate our resources to achieving a satisfactory outcome. 

At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we can provide the level of attention, information, and support you need to feel supported and empowered throughout your case.

We recognize that pursuing a lawsuit is a big decision in any type of case, but can be especially overwhelming for survivors of sexual abuse. 

For many survivors, a civil lawsuit can offer a degree of closure, allowing them the opportunity to bring wrongdoing out of the shadows and prevent the same thing from happening to another vulnerable individual.

If you or a loved one was abused, you need a compassionate team with helpful resources behind you to achieve a satisfactory result. 

The attorneys at Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton have been representing residents of Utah since 1993.

There are no upfront fees for hiring an attorney from our firm.
