Filing a Civil Lawsuit for Money Damages
Being a victim of a sexual assault may mean having to move to new housing. It may mean leaving school, leaving a job, or getting counseling. It may mean that you have medical expenses for physical injuries. It may mean you take a break from school. All of those things may cause you to lose income or spend money you wouldn’t have had to spend otherwise.
A civil lawsuit may be a way to get compensation for what happened to you.
