No one deserves to be a victim of sexual assault. If you have ever been assaulted, it will likely haunt you for the rest of your life. There is no way to completely remove that harm, and we know it. But at Crain Brogdon, our Dallas sexual assault lawyers are dedicated to helping people like you recover.
Will legal action restore your sense of safety? No, but the money you get in compensation can help you better access the resources you need during your recovery and after. Medical bills, lost wages, and counseling all cost money. And recovery is that much more difficult if you are drowning in bills.
We understand your hesitancy to speak to someone about your assault. All we can say is that our Dallas sexual assault injury lawyers truly care about your well-being. If you are ready to speak about your assault, Crain Brogdon is here for you.
After suffering the trauma of sexual assault, you need a compassionate sexual assault lawyer in Dallas, TX, by your side. Call Crain Brogdon at (214) 522-9404 to schedule a free, confidential consultation with an attorney that cares.
Speaking about your trauma is one of the hardest parts of taking legal action against someone who has abused or assaulted you. No matter how much evidence there is of the assault, there will be people who refuse to believe it happened or, even worse, blame you for it. Lawyers and critics will tear your life apart and air all your “dirty laundry” just to invalidate your claims. It is unconscionable behavior that disgusts every attorney at our law firm. When we represent you, we do everything we can to shield you from these actions. You are not the perpetrator of this horrid act and shouldn’t be treated like you are.
One of the best ways to prevent opposing counsel from ripping your life apart is with incontrovertible evidence of the sexual assault. The more evidence we can pile up, the more likely the other party will agree to a settlement. To successfully gather this evidence, we will need you to be honest and open about your experience.
Our Dallas sexual assault lawyers understand how traumatic it can be to relive those moments. We will do everything we can to make that discussion as painless as possible. And once we have enough information, we will diligently investigate your case until we have enough evidence that we feel confident in the outcome of your case.
But regardless of how much money we get you, that is only half of what you need from our Dallas sexual assault lawyers. You also need non-monetary resources. Our attorneys can direct you to doctors, counselors, and other assistance services that will ease your pain after being assaulted. The more help you receive, the more likely you will return to a normal life. If you need anything, just ask, and we’ll do our best to help.

Sadly, sexual assault is all too common in Texas. While it can happen at the hands of a stranger, it most often is caused by someone you trust. Some of the most common sources of sexual assault are:
These are people that you interact with daily and trust to support or assist you. When they engage in this behavior, they aren’t just violating you physically — they are violating the trust you gave them. The emotional pain is often as brutal as the physical pain and may even be worse. And your relationship with an individual who assaulted you can make it almost impossible to take legal action against them. You may fear losing your job if you report sexual abuse in the workplace or losing friends if you report a clergy member.
That is one of the challenges we deal with regularly at Crain Brogdon. We take into account your concerns and desires when we take your case. If you love your job, for example, we will do everything we can to help you keep that job, even while holding involved co-workers or bosses accountable. It is a tricky line to walk, but an experienced sexual assault lawyer in Dallas, TX, at Crain Brogdon knows how to balance the competing desires of a client.
The most devastating moment for any parent is when they first realize their child has been sexually assaulted. If you are a parent, you know you would gladly accept any amount of suffering to protect your child from that pain. Unfortunately, some would assault children and are in positions of authority over them. Clergy, teachers, and scout leaders are just some that might use their position to sexually assault a child. The abuse may go on for months or years, especially if your child can’t or won’t speak about it.
If you are a parent concerned that your child has been sexually assaulted, contact Crain Brogdon immediately. Our sexual assault attorneys have experience working with children and can investigate your case without causing additional harm to your child. We just need you to recognize the signs and act. Some common signs to look for are:
The damage from child sexual assault can never be fully corrected, and money alone won’t solve the problem. But we will direct you to the therapeutic resources to help your child and fight to get you the money to pay for those services.
It can be hard to ask questions about sexual assault because doing so often requires admitting to a stranger that you were assaulted. By sharing answers to some of the most common questions we get, hopefully, we can make this a little less difficult for you.
How Long Do I Have to Report Sexual Assault in Texas?
If you were abused as an adult, the statute of limitations requires you to take legal action within five years of the assault. However, if you were assaulted as a child or your child was assaulted, you have 30 years to act.
Do I Have to Tell My Employer If I Was Sexually Assaulted at Work?
If you want to make a personal injury claim against someone at your workplace or against your employer, you need to inform them eventually. However, you should consult with a sexual assault attorney in Dallas first to ensure your rights are protected.
Will My Assault Become Public Knowledge?
That depends on what you want. If you want to keep it secret, we will do our best to limit what others can say about it publicly by including non-disclosure agreements in any settlements. Unfortunately, if your case goes to trial, it will become a public record, as will everything that is said in the courtroom.
Is My Case Likely to Go to Trial?
The vast majority of sexual assault cases end in settlement. This usually means the perpetrator doesn’t acknowledge their guilt, but you should receive a sizable amount of money in return. Typically, we push for a trial only when the other side refuses to agree to fair terms.
Will the Free Consultation be Confidential?
Yes, anything you say to us will be confidential, and we will do our best to hide your identity.
If you have other questions, please feel free to ask any of our attorneys, knowing that we will do our best to answer you fully and compassionately.
When you are at your most vulnerable, you need someone who will support you through your difficulties and make life better. At Crain Brogdon, we are confident that our Dallas, TX, sexual assault lawyers are those people.
If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted, you deserve compassionate representation from a law firm that you can trust. Call Crain Brogdon at (214) 522-9404 to schedule a free, confidential consultation with an attorney that cares.
