Assert Your Legal Rights after a Sexual Assault

You can seek compensation from a person who committed a sexual assault under a variety of civil liability theories, including assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, violation of stalking statutes, negligent transmission of an STD, or wrongful death. The compensation may include an award for any psychological suffering caused by the assault. When a defendant is found guilty in a criminal proceeding, the focus in the civil claim will be on the amount of damages. However, even if the defendant is not found guilty, you may have a chance to secure compensation.
