New York City Campus Sexual Assault Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for Young Adults Sexually Abused On College Campuses

Sexual abuse and assault have become more prevalent on college and university campuses and dormitories. In fact, according to the 2014 White House Report, one in five women are sexually abused in college, most often during their freshman or sophomore year. It is important to note that sexual abuse and assault is not limited to women only – men can also be the victim of sexual abuse and assault on college campuses.

The New York college assault lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. stand up for the rights of young adults who have been sexually abused or assaulted on college or university campuses. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our young clients and will do whatever it takes to seek financial compensation from those who caused them harm.

What College Sexual Assault Victims Need to Know

sexual assault in CampusSexual abuse and rape are historically underreported in the United States. Underreporting is even a bigger problem when it comes to assaults on college campuses. According to the Campus Sexual Assault Study, which is sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, only about 13 percent of victims of rape and assault victims report the crime to local law enforcement or campus security. Even more staggering is that only 2 percent of incapacitated assault survivors report the crime.

Unlike most other crimes, college sexual assault victims tend to blame themselves for the horrific crime they experience. This makes it harder for these victims to view what happened to them as a crime that they need to report. Other reasons for not reporting the crime also exist, such as believing that nobody will believe their side of the story, embarrassment and shame, not wanting their friends and family to find out, or being poorly treated or shamed by their college or the police.

Even more disheartening than the big problem of underreporting is the case of the students who found the courage to reach out to their school administration and being told to “just put it all behind” them and move on.

At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we believe you have the right to be heard and the right to bring your attacker to justice. Our New York college campus sexual abuse attorneys will investigate the facts of your case. Although college campus authorities are expected to conduct their own internal investigation regarding any accusations of abuse or rape, it is also important that you report any suspected issues to law enforcement as well.

In some cases, college administrators may not adequately investigate the crime in an effort to protect the campus’s image. Our legal team will aggressively work to bring these charges to light, prevent future abuse and harassment, and hold all parties involved accountable for any wrongdoing.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
