What to Know About Human Trafficking Cases
There are many misconceptions surrounding human trafficking. Get answers to frequently asked questions and learn what kind of outcomes you can expect.
Where Does Human Trafficking Generally Happen?
Human trafficking networks can happen almost anywhere. These networks can focus on sex trafficking, or they can involve labor trafficking, which forces vulnerable people to work for no or little pay.
In either case, these organizations tend to thrive in a few select industries. According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, the most common venues and industries for sex and labor trafficking include:
- Hotels and motels
- Domestic work
- Agriculture and farm work
- Traveling sales teams
- Restaurants and food service
Although anyone can become involved in human trafficking against their will, certain groups tend to be more vulnerable. For example, children in foster care, homeless children, and people with limited English skills are more susceptible.
Who Can Be Held Liable for Human Trafficking?
It isn't always possible to pursue criminal cases against human trafficking organizations. However, you may be able to pursue a civil case against the offenders. Depending on your case, handlers, customers, businesses, or websites that profited from trafficking advertisements could be held liable for damages and suffering you endured.
How Much Compensation Could I Recover?
If you file a civil suit, you may be eligible for financial compensation. In many cases, you may be able to recover economic damages such as medical, psychiatric, and other expenses. You may also be able to seek compensation from businesses that profited from human trafficking. When you pursue a human trafficking lawsuit, you can also get peace of mind knowing that you've helped deter these horrific crimes.
When Should I File a Human Trafficking Law Suit?
Experiencing human trafficking is traumatic and life altering. You should always seek legal action or get legal advice as soon as you're able.
Each state has its own deadline for legal action, known as statute of limitations. Waiting too long could mean that you miss the deadline and can't recover the full compensation you deserve.
