Sexual Abuse

In addition to the criminal law processes which seek to punish the sexual abusers, the civil justice system can be used to compensate the victims of sexual abuse. Often times, the predator and those entities and/or individuals who were aware or should have been aware of the abuse can be held accountable through the filing of a civil lawsuit. The sexual abuse survivor can file a claim and seek compensation for medical and psychological treatment and for pain, suffering, and emotional distress among other remedies.
