"Nearly 1 in 5 (18.3%) women and 1 in 71 men (1.4%) reported experiencing sexual abuse at some time in their lives." - cdc.gov
An abuser in a case against a victim for sexual assault is usually prosecuted in a criminal court. If found guilty a sentence is imposed which entails jail or prison time. The best opportunity a victim has at recovering any monetary damages is in civil court by suing the defendant, or the entity that covered up or allowed the abuse. A victim of sexual abuse may be able to sue for assault, battery, emotional damages such as Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, physical abuse, or other types of personal injury.
If you’ve been the victim of sexual abuse and need to recover monetary damages for your loss, call our office today.
