Sexual Assault Victims

Many recent high profile sexual abuse cases, particularly involving young victims, highlight the criminal liability abusers face. What is not immediately apparent, though, is the physically, mentally, and emotionally debilitating injuries abuse victims have sustained and are often forced to live with for the rest of their life. Sexual abusers, pursuant to the law, are not only criminally liable for their actions, but can also be held financially responsible for the injuries and economic loss caused by their actions.

Civil Liability For The Abuser And Potential Third Parties

8-in-10 sexual assault victims know the abuser. Nevertheless, whether the abuser is a teacher, clergy member, co-worker, family member, or even a stranger, in addition to criminal liability, they also face civil liability. Moreover, in some cases, third-parties such as schools, property managers, employers, and others may be held vicarious liable if their negligence enabled or aided the abuser. Even businesses may be liable for negligent or inadequate security if the abuse took place on their premises and should have been stopped.

Sexual Violence Is Unfortunately Common

A heartbreaking 1-in-4 girls and 1-in-6 boys are sexually assaulted in their youth. Child sex abuse is reported around 90,000 times a year, although the actual number of cases is likely much higher. Sadly, the effects of sexual abuse are devastating and often extend many years after the abuse ceases. Physical, mental, and emotional injuries stemming from sex abuse can last a lifetime. We hold any and all liable parties accountable for the damages they have caused.
