Sexual Assault & Rape

Hundreds of thousands of women each year will be the victim of a sexual assault.  Most of these crimes go unreported and unprosecuted.  While it may be difficult to obtain a criminal conviction against the attacker, they can be held civilly responsible by filing a personal injury liability lawsuit against them for damages.

 

Frequently, the person who was the attacker may not be collectible because he has no assets or is in prison.  Sometimes, other parties may be liable for his criminal conduct.  Employers, bars and cruise ships, may have the legal duty to take proper precautions to prevent these attacks from taking place.
