Miami Lakes Sexual Assault

Trauma, Injuries, and Sexual Assault in Miami Lakes and Florida

The reality is that being attacked can be not only traumatizing but can also be financially distressing for survivors. After sexual assault, survivors may need to pay for:

  • Counseling or other forms of care to deal with the trauma the assault
  • STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) testing and treatment
  • Medical bills
  • Lost time at work as they recover
  • Incidental costs
  • The costs related to property damage, if property was stolen or damaged during the attack

These costs can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars, especially if the assault was very violent and resulted in severe injury. In these cases, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney in order to review all legal options.

Sexual assault survivors may be able to pursue legal claims not only against the perpetrator of the crime but also against other liable parties. In these cases, all too often there are multiple negligent parties that may have contributed to the crime. For example, a property owner may not have warned employees or users of the property about sexual assaults in the area. Or, a property owner may have failed to provide a safe environment by refusing to maintain good lighting in a remote parking area. In these cases, the property owner may be held partly liable for the incident, even if the perpetrator is never caught. Pursuing justice in this case may involve pursuing a civil claim in order to seek financial compensation as well as justice against those who were responsible for the assault.
