Reasons Some Sex Abuse Survivors Remain Silent

Survivors often suffer in silence after experiencing sexual assault or abuse. These survivors often stay silent for many reasons, including some of the following:

  • Fear of reprisal or retaliation
  • Fear of not being believed or other negative reactions
  • Fearing their accusations will not be taken seriously
  • Fear that the police won’t help
  • Perpetrator is someone they know; fear that this person will get in trouble
  • Not wanting family or others to know
  • Embarrassment
  • Denial of what happened
  • Having been threatened, intimidated, or warned to remain quiet

The Importance of Speaking Out against Abuse

If you’ve been a victim of sexual abuse or assault, the compassionate New York sexual abuse lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP are here to listen.

You could be instrumental in putting an abuser away so that they don’t hurt anyone else in the way that you were hurt.
