Sexual assault is a serious wrongdoing that can have lasting consequences for the victim. Bringing a sexual assault case to civil court can help you receive the compensation and justice you deserve, even if the accused has been cleared of criminal charges. Navigating the aftermath of an assault can be difficult and challenging, but the team at Whitner Law Firm is here to offer high-quality legal representation so you are aware of your options.
What Legal Action Can Be Taken?
When it comes to sexual abuse cases, both criminal and civil cases can be brought to court. The most important difference between criminal and civil cases is the amount of evidence required and who brings the case to court. When it comes to civil cases, the standard of evidence required is lower when compared to a criminal case.
A sexual abuse lawyer from Whitener Law Firm can help you navigate the complexities of the legal system and advise you on the best course of action while taking your needs and wants into account. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse by a member of a recreational or religious organization, we can help you with pursuing redress in these cases as well.
