Anyone who is the victim of a crime of sexual assault has the right to file a civil suit seeking compensation for injuries. Such injuries would be suffered as a result of the offense committed by the assaultor or others whose misconduct creates the conditions that allowed the crime to take place.

A simple example would be a lawsuit against the man who raped her and the landlord who refused to repair the broken lock at the front door of the building by the victim of a sexual assault in her home. Another example would be a massage therapist who assaulted a client without a license at a Day Spa or Wellness Center or where previous complaints were reported and the company failed to do anything about it or hired a therapist who knew they had a history of sexual assault in the past.

While the criminal justice system keeps criminal defendants accountable for their crimes against the government, they are held directly accountable to their victims by the civil justice system.

A civil lawsuit can provide for financial damages compensation as well as for emotional and physical injuries suffered by the victim of sexual assault. A civil suit gives the victims their "day - in-court," irrespective of whether a full criminal trial has taken place. If a criminal trial has taken place and the assaultor has been found guilty, this is also extremely helpful for your civil case.
