The real impact of sexual assault in Illinois

Even between people in Illinois who are already intimate partners, sexual assault can and does occur. Those who are involved can be impacted in many ways, and it is important to note that a lot of the injuries that they suffer may still linger long after the incident is over. It is not as if they simply have instant injuries that will always heal quickly and easily. For example, some people who have been victimized in this way have reported things like:

-- A general feeling of anxiety.-- Battles with depression and a low sense of self-worth.-- A lack of positive self-esteem.-- Suicidal thoughts and desires.-- Potential suicidal attempts.-- Complications with future pregnancies.-- Lingering gastrointestinal disorders.-- Gynecological complications.-- STDs, or sexually transmitted diseases.

While the physical injuries are important to note, the fact of the matter is that the mental and emotional injuries may last far longer. It is crucial for victims and those around them to understand the full impact of these injuries and to know that these ailments, though they are often invisible to the eye, are just as real as anything else.

If you have been sexually assaulted, or if a loved one has suffered from such an incident and perhaps passed away as a result, you need to know how your rights have been violated and what legal options you have. To learn more about this, we encourage you to visit our site at your earliest convenience. We will be happy to provide you with the information that you seek.
