Roofer Sexual Assault Lawyer In Los Angeles


When you hire a roofing contractor to install or repair the roof on your Los Angeles home, it is not uncommon to have some concerns about the project’s outcome. Homeowners might be concerned about the quality of the workmanship or the warranty on the roof, but rarely is there ever a thought for your personal safety. However, that can change in a fraction of a second when the roofer becomes aggressive, pushy, or abusive and makes unwanted sexual advances. It is essential for any sexual assault victim to understand that they have the right to file charges against their assailant.

As difficult as it may be to relive this traumatic experience, it is the only way to seek justice for the abuse you endured and begin to heal and move past this disturbing event. The team at DTLA Law is here 24/7 to discuss your case and help you determine how you would like to proceed in pressing charges and/or filing a civil claim against the person or persons who sexually assaulted you. Your DTLA Law roofer sexual assault lawyer understands how upsetting it is to take about the incident and will make your free consultation as simple and stress-free as possible. But it is vital to take action quickly to relate the event in as much detail as possible and to gather documents to support your case against the roofer who sexually assaulted you.

Crucial Steps To Take After A Sexual Assault

After being sexually assaulted by a roofer in your own home, you are sure to be very traumatized. However, it is crucial to understand that your safety and success in pressing charges and winning a civil lawsuit against the aggressor depend on your actions immediately after the assault. Follow these guidelines to ensure your safety and begin gathering evidence:

  • Call 911 to report the sexual assault. Request that a police officer comes to your home immediately to ensure your safety from further abuse.
  • Take photos of any injuries to your body and of the damage to your home from struggling with your assailant.
  • Complete a police report when the officer arrives at your home.
  • Seek medical attention to ensure that your injuries are documented by a medical professional and that you are appropriately treated for all physical injuries.
  • If the roofer who sexually assaulted you is an employee of a business rather than an independent contractor, report the assault to the company.
  • Contact a roofer sexual assault lawyer at DTLA Law Group as soon as possible for a free consultation.
  • Keep all records, medical bills, and any items that could be used as physical evidence, including torn or damaged clothing, sheets, blankets, or other things that could contain DNA if they were not gathered by the police who took your statement and completed the police report.

Understanding What Is Considered Sexual Assault

Victims need to understand that the definition of sexual assault has been formulated by the U.S. Department of Justice and is uniform across the entire country. The intent is very clear and defines the acts included in the more broad category of sexual abuse.

Sexual assault is any non-consensual sexual act, including when the victim lacks the capacity to consent. The specific acts considered sex crimes include:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Groping or unwanted touching

If you were an unwilling victim of any of these acts by a roofer working at your home, contact the DTLA Law Group immediately to explain your case and learn more about your legal options against your aggressor. We are here to help and listen as you begin to process the details of this unforgivable form of abuse you have endured.

Your Options Under The Law

As a victim of sexual assault by a roofer working at your home, you can legally file criminal charges and a civil claim. Clearly, the criminal charges would be punitive against the person who violated you. However, the civil charges are to pursue monetary compensation for damages. If the roofer was an employee of a company, there is the potential to file against the company for negligent hiring if the roofer has a previous record of abusive behavior or a criminal history of sexual assault. In addition, you can bring a civil case against the individual for financial compensation.

The Monetary Value Of A Sexual Assault Settlement

First and foremost, please understand that your DTLA Law roofer sexual assault lawyer will work diligently to get you every cent that you deserve for the heinous acts that you endured. Some of the most common types of compensation DTLA Law experts seek in a sexual assault case include:

  • Medical Expenses – This category covers any medical care related to the assault, such as emergency room care, surgery, treatment of wounds, medication, and all future treatment for physical injuries sustained during the sexual assault.
  • Lost Wages – If you have missed work due to your injuries or the trauma of your sexual abuse, the amount of your lost wages and any future lost wages due to trauma or ongoing medical care is part of the compensation amount requested.
  • Property Damage – If your clothing, home, or other possessions were damaged during the assault, you have a right to ask for compensation to replace the items.
  • Pain And Suffering Damages – In many sexual assault cases, the emotional trauma can be equal to or greater than the physical trauma you endured. PTSD, anxiety, fear, nightmares, emotional scarring, and psychological trauma are all evaluated as part of the pain and suffering related to your assault.
  • Punitive Damages – This added form of financial punishment can be requested and awarded by the court as a deterrent to the assailant. However, these funds are more difficult to secure and are typically only awarded to the most robust and well-prepared cases by a superior roofer sexual assault lawyer such as the ones at DTLA Law Group.
The Statute Of Limitations For Felony Sex Crimes

Until 2017, there was a Statute of Limitations of ten years on felony sex crimes in California, with just a few minor exceptions for victims under 18. However, on January 1, 2017, that time limit was removed. So currently, there is no time limit for reporting a felony sex crime committed after the first day of 2017. And while this is a huge step forward, it is not a reason to wait to seek legal counsel after suffering a sexual assault. On the contrary, the sooner you contact the roofer sexual assault experts at DTLA Law, the faster we can build the most thorough case possible to secure the settlement you deserve for your injuries and trauma.

Second Thoughts Deserve A Second Opinion

It can be challenging for many reasons to come forward and admit that you were sexually assaulted by a roofer working at your own home.

Our team understands how hard it can be to recall all the details and events of that day.
