Sexual Assault

Anyone who has been a victim of sexual assault can attest to the fact that the pain does not subside even if the assailant is convicted. The emotional damage that results from acts of sexual violence cannot ever be simply brushed aside. But even if the pain would go away after an assailant is convicted, there would still be a major problem, as many sexual assault cases are not even reported.

If you have been the victim of sexual assault, you can take the aftermath into your own hands by pursuing a civil lawsuit. To find out more about what you can do to achieve justice, contact the Rhinelander personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.

Why Pursue a Civil Trial?

Aside from the fact that in the current criminal justice system the chances for justice in the case of sexual assault are slim, there are many additional reasons pursuing a civil personal injury case may be a good idea. Consider the following:

  • Monetary damages can be collected: if you win the civil case, you can be reimbursed for physical, emotional and mental damages that resulted from the incident
  • Settling: assailants may be willing to settle rather than have a potentially large monetary judgment put out against them
