Surviving sexual assault can leave one with traumatic injuries both physical and psychological. It is well known that a criminal conviction can be pursued against the perpetrator, but unfortunately a conviction may not provide the monetary compensation a survivor needs in order to cover losses like pain and suffering, medical expenses, and wage losses.

Civil Law Suit – An Additional Option in a Sexual Assault Matter

A civil lawsuit against the perpetrator can provide the monetary compensation a survivor needs. A civil lawsuit, unlike a criminal prosecution, allows the survivor to control the case including deciding whether to move forward with a trial. It also only requires proving that the perpetrator is more likely than not liable for the injuries and damages, which means that they were 51% or more at fault, instead of the beyond a reasonable doubt standard required by the criminal system.

A Team That Recognizes the Difference

At Hawks Quindel, we understand that deciding to pursue compensation for sexual assault is not at all the same as pursuing a different personal injury claim. We recognize that deciding to pursue a case for sexual assault whether though the criminal system or civil system is not an easy decision to make. Because of that, if you do decide to pursue a civil law suit, our team will seek to obtain the compensation you are entitled to with the diligence and delicacy required in these cases.
