Sexual assault can occur when someone is the subject of inappropriate or unwanted kissing, touching, fondling, or rape. Often, people believe that once they have been the victim of sexual abuse, it may be impossible to collect compensation since the abuser has no assets. There are, however, instances where parties who did not play an active part in the abuse will be civilly liable because they had duty to prevent it. Cases like this will go hand in hand with negligent security cases, and often impose civil liability on multiple parties.
These are extremely complex cases and are often vigorously contested by churches, universities or other large organizations. Physical and mental health issues must be carefully considered. And cases for damages must be built by a law firm with the knowledge, experience and financial resources necessary to bring such claims to justice. Experts in the field of child psychology and sex abuse are often necessary. And fighting the opposing lawyers and insurance companies can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to force settlement negotiations or prepare a case for the courtroom.
