National Human Trafficking Lawyers
What Is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking is one of the largest illicit industries in the world, and an estimated 30 million people are victimized each year.
According to the United States Criminal Code, human trafficking occurs when one person uses deception, fraud, abduction, or other coercion to force another person into labor, which often takes the form of prostitution, agricultural work, or other forced servitude. Human trafficking may also refer to any instance in which persons are transported, recruited, received, or otherwise exploited for such purposes. Anyone can become a victim of human trafficking, though women, children, and low-income individuals tend to be the most vulnerable.
What to Do if You Have Been a Victim of Trafficking
If you have been exploited by a trafficker, you may be able to bring a civil lawsuit against them in order to remedy your pain, suffering, and other damages. You may also be able to take action against any parties who were complicit in your being trafficked, including hotel staff, so-called “johns,” websites that facilitated trafficking, and any other group, person, or entity involved in the process.
In addition to helping you file civil lawsuits against offending parties, we may be able to counsel you and help you access essential resources while you get back on your feet. If you are in immediate danger, we may also be able to help refer you to law enforcement and take necessary precautions to keep yourself safe.
