Recovering For Mental Trauma Of Stalking
Today, social media and other technological advances have provided stalkers with tools that enable them to learn a lot about their victims and escalate their stalking efforts. The crime of stalking involves an individual making you feel unsafe or threatened by initiating contact, or attempting to communicate with you after you have told the individual to stop. Stalking should not be taken lightly, as it often leads to other crimes such as rape, assault, kidnapping, or murder. You can seek a protective order against the stalker. However, sometimes this is not enough to prevent further attempts by the stalker.
Our experienced crime victim lawyers can help you bring cases against those that knew there was a stalking issue and did nothing to prevent this from occurring. We have seen cases before where the victim lives in fear of their life and suffers mental anguish to the extent that their life is ruined. As a result, we can help analyze the circumstances of your case and identify responsible parties who were negligent in stopping the crime. Contact us today for a consultation.
