Tamarac Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is traumatic, whether it occurs on a date or occurs on a dark street and involves strangers. This type of attack leaves survivors with trauma, physical injury, as well as potential exposure to HIV and other STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections). If you have been sexually assaulted, you will want to consult with a personal injury attorney in Tamarac or your community to get legal advice and representation.

Under civil laws, you may be qualified to have fair compensation provided to you if your assault was caused by someone's negligence, wrongful act, or recklessness. In many sexual assault cases, the perpetrator is obviously someone who can be pursued in a civil claim. However, there may be other liable parties in your case as well.
Even if the perpetrator is never caught, for example, you may have a claim against the property owner of the property where the attack took place. If the property owner was negligent in providing a reasonably safe area or if the property owner failed to take steps to keep visitors safe after learning of assaults in the area, he or she may be held partly liable for the attack. To find out whether you qualify for civil claim or whether you can pursue compensation in your case, contact a personal injury attorney to find out what options exist in your specific situation.Why Seek Compensation After a Sexual Assault in Tamarac or Your Community?
Many people who have survived a sexual assault or focus on healing from the emotional and physical aftermath of the violence. Many do not realize that they have the right to seek compensation for their injuries or choose not to seek compensation. However, there are several good reasons why filing a civil claim after sexual assault can make sense:
- It can allow survivors to seek justice
- It can allow survivors to hold all liable parties liable, even those that are not being held criminally responsible
- It can mean another way to seek justice against the perpetrator who may not get a strict sentence through criminal courts
- It can allow survivors to seek compensation so that they can pay for medical care, counseling, rehabilitation, lost wages, and the many other expenses that they will face
- It gives survivors a voice
- It ensures that those who are liable for an attack make important changes, potentially preventing other attacks from occurring
