Sexual Assault and Abuse Cases in Civil Court

Sexual assault is a crime with severe criminal consequences for the perpetrator, such as jail time or sex offender registration. However, as a victim, you can also pursue justice through a civil lawsuit against your assailant and potentially others who may be responsible for the circumstances of the assault.

Victims can sue not only the perpetrator but also other parties who might have contributed to the incident. For instance, if the assault occurred at work, the employer could be liable for failing to maintain a safe environment. Even without intent, an employer who neglects to act on safety concerns raised by employees may bear responsibility.

Other parties who might be held liable include:

  • Landlords
  • School districts
  • Clergy members and religious institutions
  • Supervisors of extracurricular activities
  • Private organizations
  • Daycare providers
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Government entities (e.g., public housing authorities)

Proving a Sexual Assault Case in Las Vegas

According to NRS §200.366, sexual assault is defined as non-consensual sexual contact. A Las Vegas sexual assault lawyer at High Stakes Injury Law can help you build a strong case. We start by thoroughly investigating the incident and collecting crucial evidence.

Evidence may include:

  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Physical evidence (e.g., rape kit results)
  • Photos of injuries
  • Surveillance footage
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony from medical professionals
  • Relevant voicemails, emails, and text messages

Filing for Damages

After establishing fault and liability, we will compile evidence of your damages. “Damages” refer to the losses and suffering you have endured due to the assault. Your lawyer will calculate a fair compensation amount based on your total losses, which may include:

  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Costs of mental health treatment
  • Physical therapy expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Your lawyer will handle the paperwork and court proceedings, aiming to secure the financial compensation you need to move forward.

Financial Compensation for Sexual Assault

Victims of sexual assault face long-term consequences beyond the immediate trauma. Physical injuries from the assault can result in chronic pain, scarring, and mobility issues, potentially requiring extensive recovery time or leading to permanent damage.

Psychologically, victims may suffer for years, and financially, they might incur significant costs for medical and mental health care while losing income due to their inability to work. At High Stakes Injury Law, we are committed to securing the compensation you deserve for these hardships.

Call us today at (702) 444-3228 to discuss your case with a compassionate and dedicated member of our legal team. Let us help you seek the justice and compensation you deserve.
