On the Therapeutic Benefits of Being a Plaintiff

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.

If you’re ready to stand up and fight, we can help.
