Take a Stand – It May Help Your Recovery

For a victim of cyber-abuse, harassment, discrimination, or sexual assault, there may be therapeutic benefits in just standing up and fighting for justice through the law.

[T]he very act of being a plaintiff in a tort suit has the potential to provide therapeutic benefits.

The act of being a plaintiff in a tort suit also can aid specifically in the healing process for victims of violence.

Victims of violence usually desire redress for the injustice inflicted on them, and the quest for compensation can be an important part of the victim’s recovery.

Camille Carey, Domestic Violence Torts: Righting a Civil Wrong, 62 Kansas L. Rev. 695, 742 (2014).

Simply put, there can be mental and emotional benefits from standing up and fighting for justice when you have been a victim.

Though these statistics are presented in descending order , it should be noted — particularly in light of the FBI’s own caution — that a region’s ranking does not provide a complete picture and drawing inferences based on ranking alone may prove misleading.

Violent crime rates, particularly when more narrowly reduced to particular locales, may provide an indication of foreseeability and assist in a property owner’s assessment of what safety precautions are reasonably needed to prevent injuries to people on its premises.
