Civil Cases for Sexual Assault (and Criminal)
As a sexual assault survivor, you likely suffered physical injuries, emotional distress, mental anguish, or other damages that could qualify you to seek compensation through the civil justice system. A civil claim could give you the financial stability you need to move forward. While a criminal case can sentence the ridesharing driver to jail or probation for sexually assaulting you, a civil claim can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for your losses. You might have grounds to file a claim not only against the assailant but also against the handyman company that sent the perpetrator to your home.
If the company negligently failed to take steps to prevent the assault, it could be liable for your damages. Talk to a lawyer about your sexual assault claim. You do not have to go through this alone. Partner with a sexual assault lawyer to fight for your success.
