Sexual assault is traumatic and victims often wonder how they can get their life back. The physical and psychological damage can be devastating, and understanding your legal options can be overwhelming. Most victims don’t even realize that they can file a civil lawsuit against their attacker. While the criminal justice system punishes perpetrators, the civil justice system helps victims recover. A civil suit can provide compensation, hold negligent parties accountable, and provide options not available in a criminal court.
