Abuse is Not Always Physical

When we think of abuse, physical abuse automatically comes to mind. However, physical interaction does not have to occur to classify an event as abuse. Common forms of non-physical abuse include:

  • Abandonment
  • Humiliation
  • Intimidation
  • Harassment
  • Enforced social isolation
  • Verbal assaults/threats
  • Financial or material exploitation

Emotional and psychological abuse can be just as damaging as physical abuse, and for some, can leave deeper scars that may last a lifetime. Emotional abuse and neglect, can for instance, lead to social anxiety, trust issues, fear of being alone, fear of being in a relationship, fear of the opposite sex, depression and more.

In many cases, victims of emotional abuse become so broken down that they become too afraid to seek help. Don’t let this happen to you. No matter who the abuser is, how long it has been going on, or how afraid you may feel, we can and want to help you.

Our consultations are completely confidential. We will discuss your circumstances and help you develop a legal strategy that best suits your individual needs. Don’t wait any longer. Contact our abuse attorneys for help today.
