If you are sexually harassed or physically touched in a sexually offensive manner in or outside of your workplace, then you may have a claim against the perpetrator and/or his or her employer for sexual harassment or assault. We can help you recover damages for your emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of income, if any, and associated mental health expenses. Punitive damages are often assessed in these cases.
