Sexual assault in Miramar and other Florida communities occurs every day and affects residents of all ages. In addition to the physical impact of sexual assault, many survivors also experience fear, depression, guilt, shame, and a host of other feelings.

Unfortunately, our society does not always treat assault survivors correctly. In some cases, survivors report that they were not believed when they reported the incident or found that the perpetrator was released on bail or received little or no punishment for the crime.
Many survivors turn to civil courts in order to get a measure of justice in their cases. Civil courts allow plaintiffs to seek justice from perpetrators and from other liable parties. Whether or not criminal charges have been filed and whether or not a perpetrator has been found guilty or even caught, a civil court provides another platform where survivors can seek justice as well as compensation for the pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages, and other losses they have incurred. If you have survived an attack, contact a personal injury attorney in your community to find out more.Injuries after Sexual Assault
Survivors are at risk of getting badly injured during a sexual assault. In addition to the emotional trauma of this type of violence, survivors are at risk of sexually transmitted infection, including HIV, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and more. Some of these conditions put survivors at an increased risk of life-threatening cancers or other ailments or put them at risk of sterility.
In addition, the attack itself is often violent, and can cause fractures, lacerations, and even permanent head injury or spinal cord injury. Someone who has survived this type of violence needs to go to an emergency room right away for a full physical evaluation and in order to get immediate treatment for any injuries they may have sustained. Survivors also deserve the full support of our society. Unfortunately, in many cases it is challenging for them to get it. Speaking with a personal injury attorney in Miramar or your community is one way to get an additional source of support.
