Pompano Beach Sexual Assault
Sexual assault in Pompano Beach and Florida affects far too many people each year, causing injuries and emotional trauma. As a society, we must do everything we can to protect vulnerable residents from sexual abuse and assault and we must do all we can to hold perpetrators and other liable parties fully accountable for their crimes. The criminal justice system can help, but is often hindered. Tougher laws against perpetrators would help, but until stronger laws are passed many survivors of sexual assault find that they can seek justice by turning to the civil courts as well as the criminal courts.

Getting fair compensation means you can seek quality medical attention and treatment to recover as fully and quickly as possible. Many survivors of sexual assault do not even consider the possibility of seeking compensation for their injuries. However, the treatment and medical costs of this type of violence can be substantial. In some cases, survivors sustain permanent head injuries or contract sexually transmitted infections that will result in a lifetime of medication use or treatment. In almost all cases, someone who has been assaulted will need to visit an emergency room in order to get tests and treatment – an expense that can add up to many thousands of dollars alone. They may have to lose time away from work as they heal and may need to get therapy or counseling for the emotional trauma the event. There's no reason for survivors to have to pay for these costs alone, especially since these costs can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars or even more.Florida Laws and Sexual Assault
Florida law does allow survivors of assault to pursue compensation as well as justice through the civil court system. Survivors can seek a legal claim against any liable parties, including the perpetrator of the attack.
If a sexual assault survivor qualifies, they may be able to file a legal claim against the property owner where the attack took place, against the perpetrator, and against any other liable parties. Seeking a civil claim allows a survivor to seek justice as well as compensation for their medical bills and other expenses. To find out more, survivors of assault will want to consult with a personal injury attorney soon after their injury in order to find out what can be done to seek maximum compensation for their injuries.
