What Are My Legal Options After Sexual Assault?

Breit Cantor Grana Buckner

In the aftermath of sexual assault, it is imperative that you get the medical attention you need and take time to recover. After you have received medical care and are stabilized, you may wish to take action against the person who assaulted you by holding them accountable for their actions in a court of law.

In many cases, bringing perpetrators to justice helps survivors of sexual assault find closure and regain a sense of safety. Though the prospect may be scary, speaking up about sexual violence and assault can keep the person who hurt you from doing the same to others and make the world a safer place.

Speak up today and get the help you need. Call (888) 635-9500 to speak to a sexual assault lawyer in Richmond.

Filing a Civil Lawsuit Against a Perpetrator

Filing a civil lawsuit against the person who sexually assaulted you may be a good option in your case if you have experienced significant suffering, emotional distress, medical expenses, and other highly personal costs. Civil litigation allows you to recover damages from the person who hurt you and keep them on the hook for the tangible and intangible costs created through their abuse. By taking your attacker to court, you may be able to obtain compensation for:

  • Mental health counseling
  • Medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional distress—and more.

Given the appalling and highly distressing nature of sexual crimes, judges and juries tend to side with victims and award, particularly high damages. This is often essential for sexual assault victims seeking to get their life back and regain normalcy through mental, medical, and personal care.
