What Damages Are Available in a Sexual Assault Civil Case?
Every 98 seconds, someone in the United States experiences sexual assault. Young people ages 18 to 34 are at the highest risk of sexual assault (54%), as are females. Sexual assault is a pervasive problem around the world, but that doesn’t mean victims don’t have rights. A civil case could result not only in justice for your family but in financial awards for the following damages:
- Physical pain and injuries.
- Assault-related medical bills.
- The costs of emotional therapy.
- Emotional distress and mental anguish.
- Psychological trauma.
- Lost wages or capacity to earn.
- Lost enjoyment of life.
