  • What Is Sexual Assault?

    Sexual assault is more than rape. Many people may not report a sexual assault because they don’t believe that what happened to them is an assault in the eyes of the law or they think the authorities won’t believe them. Others may not report a sexual assault because they are afraid of public scrutiny.

    First, sexual assault means any nonconsensual act that is defined by federal, state, or tribal law, even if the victim cannot consent to the sexual activity. Rape and sexual assault are rarely crimes of passion. They are about gaining control over the victim. The most important thing you should know is that it is never the victim’s fault that they were sexually assaulted or raped.

    Our sexual assault lawyers understand that keeping your case as confidential as possible is necessary. While you might have to go to trial to testify against your abuser, you are helping save others from being sexually assaulted by the same person — because they are likely to do it again.

    If you have been assaulted and are hesitant to discuss such personal matters with the police, you can request an officer of the same sex to take your statement. While discussing sexual assault is not comfortable, it is imperative that you file charges against the perpetrator, whether you know them or not.

  • Criminal and Civil Claims

    While sexual assault is a crime, the burden of proof in criminal court is high. The assault must be proved without a reasonable doubt. However, this crime may also be prosecuted in civil court. Even if the perpetrator receives a sentence in criminal court, you may be able to sue them in civil court for compensation. You could receive remuneration for:

    • Medical treatment related to the assault
    • Psychological trauma
    • Loss of employment or wages
    • Emotional counseling
    • Any other damages caused by the assault

    In some cases, you may also be able to sue a third party for sexual assault. For example, if you were assaulted at work, you may be able to sue your employer for not completing a thorough background check on the person who assaulted you. You may also be able to sue a business such as an apartment complex that failed to provide proper lighting or other security measures.

    Additionally, if you were sexually assaulted, this may have an effect on your spouse. You may be able to sue on behalf of a spouse who suffers from anger, loss of sexual intimacy, fear, and resentment. These feelings cause a rift in your marriage and could even destroy the relationship. In some cases, punitive damages could be quite high.

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
