person holding up a #metoo sign | Sexual Assault Affects EveryoneSexual assault affects everyone. It affects men, women, and children from every socio-economic and cultural background. It knows no limits. In fact, according to RAINN, 1 out of every 6 women and 1 out of every 33 men have been victims of an attempted or completed rape. According to Child Protective Services, every single year, 63,000 children become victims of sexual assault. Even more concerning is that the real sexual assault statistics are even higher because many victims never come forward.

What is Sexual Assault in Colorado?

In the state of Colorado, sexual assault is addressed in Colorado Revised Statutes Sections 18-3-402: Sexual Assault, and 18-3-404: Unlawful Sexual Contact. It is defined as any sexual contact that is unwanted or performed without consent. This can include unwanted sexual touching, as well as being made to perform or being forced to endure unwanted sexual acts. It also includes sexual acts with victims who are incapable of understanding the sexual acts, such as a child or an intoxicated, unconscious, or mentally disabled individual. It also includes engaging in sexual activity while claiming to be performing a medical service, such as a pelvic examination or a massage. It also includes someone who has authority over another person, such as in a prison or hospital, and who uses that authority to coerce another into submission.

You Don’t Have to Suffer in Silence

Sadly, many sexual assault victims remain silent due to fear. They fear that speaking up may cause them to lose relationships or even their jobs. For many, the pain of reliving the traumatic event is simply too much to bear, so they remain silent. The ones who do speak up are sadly often met with disbelief or prejudice and they are often pressured into keeping silent to avoid bad publicity or to avoid “rocking the boat”.

You do not have to suffer in silence. If you have been a victim of sexual assault, it is important to know that you are not alone. At the Gold Law Firm, our sexual assault victims’ attorneys are ready to fight aggressively for you. We offer complete, compassionate, legal assistance every step of the way.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
