Advocating for Human Trafficking Victims

While it is crucial that those committing these crimes against human rights are prosecuted, it is also vital that victims are cared for and given full restitution for the egregious damages they have suffered. An experienced Houston human trafficking lawyer well-versed in personal injury trial law is dedicated to helping victims hold those responsible and complicit in what happened to them fully accountable.

Human Trafficking Attorney in Houston, Texas Representing Victims Nationwide

According to the Department of Justice, Texas has the second-highest number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. Due to its proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border, Houston has become a major hub for trafficking. Our team at Perdue & Kidd in Houston is passionate about helping victims of human trafficking obtain justice through civil litigation claims. Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience and are fierce advocates for our clients. Co-founding lawyers Jim Perdue, Jr. and Donald Kidd set the tone by insisting on focusing on individual clients and applying personal injury law with honesty and integrity.

Human Trafficking Statistics

Human trafficking is not about the movement of illegal immigrants as many might suppose. It is the application of force, fraud, and coercion to use another human being for profit. The Polaris Project provides statistics that show what is happening in today’s human slave trade:

  • About 68% of victims are forced into labor trafficking
  • About 20% are in sex trafficking
  • About 10% are coerced into labor and sex trafficking
  • Texas has the second-highest numbers of human trafficking
  • All 50 states in the U.S. have reported human trafficking activity
  • Human Trafficking is estimated to generate $150 billion annually worldwide

If Human Trafficking is a Criminal Act, Why File a Civil Suit?

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA) states that full restitution is mandatory for all victims of human trafficking. People committing crimes to profit off of victims will face criminal punishment and while that is appropriate, what is done for the victims? That is where the civil suit comes in. Just and substantial restitution should be paid by not only the direct perpetrators of the crime but all of those who capitalized on it, permitted it to happen or in any way supported the trafficking trade.

After investigating a human trafficking case, we often find one or more of the following complicit in the activity:

  • Spas
  • Massage Parlors
  • Strip Clubs
  • Hotels and Motels
  • Private Homes Hosting Brothels or Prostitution
  • Trucking or other Transportation Companies
  • Newspapers or Magazines with Ads 
  • “Dating” Websites
  • Website Operators
