Sexual Assault/Sexual Abuse

Sexual assault or abuse is one of the most traumatic experiences an individual can face. Many individuals often blame themselves and find they can’t move past the attack. This often leads to the need for long-term counseling and other medical or psychological treatment.

Pursuing Civil Remedies for Sexual Assault/Abuse Victims
Most people understand the criminal proceedings which follow a rape attack or sexual abuse incident. However, most victims of assault do not realize that they can hold their attacker financially responsible in a civil lawsuit. In addition, if the attack occurred on commercial property (such as in a parking garage or parking lot) as a result of insufficient lighting or negligent security, the property owner might be held financially responsible according to premises liability laws. A property owner who knows or should know of a danger to visitors to his premises has a duty to make this property safe.
Our lawyers fight for justice by pursuing full compensation for the medical bills and emotional trauma caused by the attack. Sexual assault or abuse may cause an individual to suffer from serious physical or emotional injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Difficulties with intimacy and trust
- Other physical, psychological or emotional damage
