Omegle Sexual Abuse Lawyer



Omegle is a website where people chat through texts and live videos online for free. Since the website doesn't require any form of registration, it has been inundated by sexual predators by coercing site users into recording explicit videos. Victims often experience trauma that can stop them from speaking up immediately. At Dolman Law Group, we assist victims in filing lawsuits against sexual predators on Omegle. We understand that it may take time before you decide to file charges, and we believe that victims who share their painful experiences deserve the best Omegle sexual abuse lawyer.

5 Facts You Should Know About Omegle

  • Users in Omegle chat anonymously—they don't know each other by real names or identities.
  • The website randomly matches users, so you could be paired with anyone. 
  • The website has options to talk through text or videos, view people's lives, and exchange information in an unmonitored area.
  • The unmonitored section contains nudity and explicit content.
  • This site is mainly for adults, but children over 13 can use the website with their parents.
Omegle's website can match children with adult predators because they have no way to accurately determine their user's information. As a result, teens and adolescents are being sexually targeted online.  If you experience sexual abuse through the Omegle website, Dolman Law Group is here to help you file charges and pursue compensation for damages. We know the best way to ensure you receive compensation for damages faced by sexual abuse.

How the Law Helps Sexual Abuse Victims

To 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.
  • This law allows a sexual abuse victim to seek compensation for physical and emotional damages, even though the defendant was acquitted of the crime.
  • 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.
The only requirement is that there is proof of tort. You can also seek financial compensation for applicable litigation costs.

What Are the Elements Under 18 U.S. Code § 2255?

We understand that healing from sexual abuse may take time. 18 U.S. Code § 2255 allows and enables you to:
  • File a lawsuit on sexual abuse years after the incident.
  • Seek compensation even if the defendant is acquitted of sexual abuse crime.
  • Seek financial compensation for physical and emotional damages.
  • File for punitive damages to prevent Omegle from allowing sexual abuse on their website.
This law also eliminates the hindrances sexual abuse victims encounter when reporting an incident years after its occurrence. The physical and emotional damages include shame from the sexual abuse through the website. They also entail the trauma you undergo when thinking of the incidence and rejection from friends or family members. Dolman Law Group will assist you in seeking the best compensation through 18 U.S. Code § 2255.
