For individuals who have experienced sexual assault, it is undoubtedly a horrific experience that is both devastating and life-altering. Every 92 seconds, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. At some point, the legal ramifications of sexual assault need to be considered. Law enforcement agencies and sexual assault lawyers act as “gatekeepers,” determining whether sexual assault charges are to be brought, and have sole discretion on whether or not to pursue charges.
Although sexual assault is a violation of criminal law, it may also provide a civil course of action for victims seeking to recover from damages. Sexual assault lawsuits can entitle victims to financial compensation if they can prove their case in court.
