Civil vs. Criminal Sexual Assault Proceedings

During a criminal case after a sexual assault, a prosecutor must prove that the accused person committed the sexual assault beyond a reasonable doubt. If a prosecutor succeeds or if the defendant pleads guilty, potential penalties can include imprisonment, probation, fines, and registering as a sex offender. While criminal cases are focused on punishing the offender and protecting others, a criminal conviction does little to provide any compensation for the harm you suffered.

We know that nothing can erase a traumatic event like a sexual assault, but financial compensation can help survivors cover their expenses and find a sense of justice. Such compensation is available through the civil court system. Unfortunately, in addition to participating in the criminal case, survivors must also file a case in civil court to seek compensation for their many losses.

Injuries and Losses Caused by Sexual Assault

In some situations, survivors of sexual assault are left with physical injuries and emotional trauma. Injuries that can result from such sexual assault include:

  • Abrasions or lacerations
  • Sexually-transmitted diseases
  • Unwanted pregnancies
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Sexual assault injuries can result in numerous losses for a victim. You can seek compensation in a civil injury claim for:

  • Medical bills for emergency treatment
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Costs for terminating a pregnancy
  • Costs of pregnancy, childbirth, and adoption
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Expenses for psychological or psychiatric treatment
