Sexual Harassment Can Be a Personal Injury Claim

Talk to an Attorney if You Have Been a Victim of Sexual Harassment

With sexual harassment finally getting the attention it deserves in the national dialogue, Will Ferguson & Associates personal injury attorney Martin J. Chàvez offers some insight into what potential litigants need to know.

“If you are sexually harassed at work by a co-employee or supervisor and your employer was aware of the harassment and did nothing, you can definitely file a personal injury lawsuit against both your employer and the person harassing you,” Chàvez said.

“And if your employer wasn’t aware, you can still file a personal injury lawsuit against whomever harassed you. Sexual assault usually includes emotional distress as a result of the attack. That distress is also compensable through a personal injury lawsuit,” he said.

In New Mexico there are administrative avenues that someone who has been sexually harassed can pursue, but before taking action it’s wise to speak with an attorney to understand your rights and what impact administrative processes might have on your case if you decide to pursue a case. If you have questions, call Will Ferguson & Associates Personal Injury Attorney Martin Chàvez at 505-633-7070.
