If you suffered physical, emotional, and financial losses because of sex and human trafficking, a lawyer can help you with your civil case. When you call Newsome Melton, we can help you hold those responsible accountable for their actions. The National Conference of State Legislatures lists some state laws that we can use to hold businesses liable.
We understand that it is often difficult to identify traffickers and bring them to justice in criminal court, but filing a civil case gives you the opportunity to make an individual or group pay for their actions. We can also help you hold a business or agency liable if they facilitated the crime by turning a blind eye or accepting benefits without reporting suspected trafficking.
Call (888) 808-5977 today for a free and confidential case review with a member of our team and to sign up for legal support and representation.
When we review your case during your confidential consultation with a member of our team, we will begin the process of identifying all potentially liable parties. This can include those who benefited from the crimes and averted their eyes as you walked by—those who could have helped but never did.
Possibly liable parties include:
We will not hesitate to take on a case against any business or agency that played a role in causing your emotional distress.
The value of your case and the types of damages you can expect to recover depend on many factors.
We will gather evidence to document as many economic and noneconomic damages as possible before we take legal action on your behalf. As a part of holding the liable parties accountable, you are eligible to pursue compensation for a wide range of losses and expenses. This includes:
We can also help you recover damages through a wrongful death claim if your loved one passed away because of their victimization.
At Newsome Melton, our team of caring and compassionate human trafficking attorneys want to help you build a strong case and pursue a just payout on your behalf. Under the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2003, you have the legal right to hold those who made you a victim of human trafficking accountable for their actions.
