How the Law Helps Sexual Abuse VictimsTo file suit under 18 U.S. Code § 2255 we must show that the defendant committed a sexual abuse crime, resulting in personal injury to the victim. We can use the defendant's criminal conviction. Not all sexual abusers or companies involved in sexual assaults get convicted of the crime. We understand that this often makes sexual abuse victims give up on filing lawsuits. In this case, we provide a solution using 18 U.S. Code § 2255.

- An advantage of 18 U.S. Code § 2255 is that it enables you to file for compensation ten years after the incident or ten years after turning eighteen if the sexual abuse occurred in your childhood.
- The court understands that sexual abuse is a traumatizing incident, and victims take a long time to heal.
- You can seek financial compensation of up to $150,000 even though the damages caused by the incident are not equal to that amount.
