Victims of Sexual Assault
Pittsburgh Abuse Litigation Attorneys – (844) 383-0565
In Pennsylvania, a victim of sexual assault or sexual abuse can file a lawsuit for damages against the offender. The civil claim operates separately from any criminal cases, which means the plaintiff could be assigned compensation even if the state never pursues criminal charges against the person who committed the crime.
Compensation you can seek in a sexual assault lawsuit includes:
- Any medical costs associated with injuries suffered during the assault.
- Any wages lost while recovering from the assault.
- Noneconomic damages, such as emotional trauma and mental harm.
- Punitive damages if the offender has been convicted for the crime.
