Sexual Assault Attorneys in Los Angeles

Victims of sexual assault and rape have suffered an extremely traumatic experience, one that can be compounded by a culture of disbelief and victim shaming. Although it can be difficult to report these terrible incidents, doing so can help victims begin the journey toward healing and regain a sense of control in their lives.

Can You Sue Your Attacker After a Sexual Assault or Rape? 

While you probably know that reporting sexual assault and rape can result in criminal charges that go to court, you may not be aware that you can also launch a civil lawsuit against your attacker. The civil suit is there to seek compensation for both monetary and non-monetary damages. You may ask for compensation related to:

  • Medical bills resulting from the attack
  • Loss of wages
  • Emotional or psychological trauma, including the cost of therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other damages associated with the attack

With a qualified and experienced team of legal experts by your side, like the professionals at The Trial Law Offices of Bradley I. Kramer, M.D., Esq., you have the best opportunity to secure maximum compensation for the vicious attack you suffered.

What Should You Do if You Were the Victim of Sexual Assault or Rape? 

Although it is extremely difficult for victims to think about facing an attacker again following sexual assault and rape, it’s essential to seek medical treatment, file a report with the authorities, and submit to the collection of evidence. Taking these critical steps in the aftermath of sexual assault or rape is the best way to ensure that justice is served and that your attacker pays for their crime.

Your next step should be to contact a law firm that has experience fighting and winning cases like yours. While criminal prosecutors will handle a criminal case, you’ll need to partner with a reputable law firm if you want to pursue a civil case. When you meet with the lawyers at The Trial Law Offices of Bradley I. Kramer, M.D., Esq., not only will you receive a free initial consultation to discuss your case, but every interaction is confidential, and our experience handling cases like yours ensures you’ll always be treated with the compassion and respect you deserve.

Taking Your Sexual Assault to Criminal and Civil Court

Whether your attacker is convicted in criminal court or not, you can elect to pursue a civil tort claim related to sexual assault and rape. It’s important to understand the statute of limitations for filing such lawsuits, and they differ between criminal and civil litigation. A qualified lawyer can help you determine if you have a case and meet the legal requirements to file a civil suit.
