Sexual Assault Claim
SEXUAL ASSAULT CIVIL LAWSUITS & RAPE CASES
LEGAL PASSION. EXPERIENCE. PERSONAL TRUST.
In the vast majority of cases, rape, sexual assault civil lawsuits can be file without disclosing the name or identity of the victim. As a former Florida Bar Crime Victims’ Rights Committee Chairperson of the Public Law Interest Section, I can tell you that sexual assault and rape lawsuits have been of benefit to other victims of rape, sexual abuse, and molestation, who’ve been subject to similar assault and harassment.
There are many unique varieties of reparations and claims for losses that you may be entitled to as part of a sexual assault personal injury lawsuit, including economic (tangible) and non-economic (or intangible) losses and damages such as, to name a few, the following compensatory damages:
— Medical Expenses & Hospital Bills;
— Pain & Suffering;
— Loss of Reputation & Embarrassment;
— Physical and Emotional Pain & Mental Anguish;
— Loss of Enjoyment of Life.
Mark has more than 30 years of experience in personal injury law.
Legal theories of torts and personal injury law concepts may allow for holding more than one individual liable for a sexual assault and abuse case, including the doctrines of negligent hiring; inadequate or negligent security; vicarious liability – as well as others that may also apply depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident and the consequences resulting from it.
An important aspect you may be worried or have concerns with, in terms of sexual lawsuits, are the potential personal-life implications, such as questions about your sexual history and personal background, dressing habits, etc. These questions about your personal life – with a few rare exceptions – have no weight upon a sex crime victim’s right to have safety and make personal choices; state and federal rules of evidence have certain elements designed to protect personal life details of rape and sexual assault victims.
Be that as it may, in these cases, it is particularly critical for you to be candid with your sexual assault lawyer and divulge all concerns and things that may be relevant in a prospective sexual assault claim. This disclosure should include details and past experiences such as (to name a few): Drug and Alcohol Use; STD’s Psychiatric History; Credibility Issues such as having provided false information to Law Enforcement Officials in the past; Criminal Record – if you have one – and other details of this particular nature.
In the initial stages of the litigation process, even before filing a personal injury civil lawsuit for sexual assault, there are more than a few important details and facts about your personal case that may be in custody of law enforcement officials, police investigators, or sex victims’ unit crimes detectives.
As a result, in some cases, you may have to wait some time before you are able to obtain that evidence, or perhaps until the state’s prosecution is over – if sexual assault criminal charges are indeed filed against the alleged perpetrator.
After a potential criminal prosecution process is over, then you may proceed to sue for sexual assault and your attorney can file a lawsuit on your behalf to seek compensation of your physical injuries and mental anguish; in cases of child sexual abuse and molestation, you may be able to recover compensation for your child’s physical and mental injuries, as well as for your emotional suffering, losses, and damages related to the unfortunate sexual transgression that your child was a victim of.
Ethical. Aggressive. Compassionate… Let Mark’s experience and personal attention to detail guide you.
While certain parents only wish for the want the sexual offender and perpetrator to be jailed, a civil litigation process can also be used to right a wrong that goes beyond the individual who perpetrated the sexual assault and child molestation acts.
In the past, for instance, on behalf of a child who was sexually assaulted by a school system worker, I was able to obtain – as part of the conditions of a sexual assault settlement – that the company who employed the individual who committed the heinous acts agree to new and improved policies, procedures and practices (such as better background checks and enhanced supervision techniques) designed to prevent future sex abuse cases and similar unfortunate episodes.
If you or a loved one (particularly children) have been victim of a rape, sexual abuse, sexual assault, or a harassment and/or molestation incident, then you should ask a Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney about your legal rights.
