Coral Springs Sexual Assault
Unfortunately, our society has a poor track record of helping sexual assault survivors. News stories are filled with assault survivors who are not believed when they come forward. All too often, the perpetrators of these attacks are allowed to walk with minimal punishment or with no punishment at all, sometimes due to technicalities or legal issues. In many cases, survivors are frustrated that they have come forward but have had little chance to secure justice on their behalf. A civil claim gives sexual assault survivors in Coral Springs and Florida another chance to seek justice as well as compensation for their injuries. Even if the perpetrator is never caught or is caught but is found not guilty, a survivor may be able to file a legal claim against the attacker and against any other liable parties. This allows the survivor to hold those accountable responsible for the attack and allows them to seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages, and more.

Sexual assault and rape are crimes, which is why many survivors choose to report their attacks to police. Many survivors report that seeking justice through a civil claim, criminal charges, and other means helps them heal and helps them feel that justice has been done in their cases.
The criminal system is unfortunately notorious for not helping victims of assault get justice. However, even in cases where criminal charges are never filed against the perpetrator and in cases where the perpetrator is never caught by authorities or is allowed to escape charges on a technicality, a civil claim allows survivors and additional way to hold responsible parties accountable in a court of law.
A civil claim can further help you seek compensation for your injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. Compensation can also help you pay for counseling or therapy, which can help you with the emotional aftermath of the attack. Finally, as you work through the healing process you may find that you need to spend time away from work or that you incur incidental costs-- such as the cost of traveling by taxi to visit specialists-- and these costs can also add up. Seeking compensation ensures that you do not face financial distress as you seek to heal from your injuries.Would You Like to Know More About Pursuing a Claim?
