Help for Sexual Assault Victims in Sacramento
Seek Justice with a Proven Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney
Sexual assault is a crime and those accused and convicted face serious prison time, registration as a sex offender, and a lasting criminal record. While these penalties go a long way in punishing the guilty, they do little for the victim's left in the wake of their offenses. Even worse, sexual crimes can be difficult to substantiate and charge, leaving many offenders unpunished and victims unrecognized.
Whatever the case may be, victims of sexual assault also have the option to have these crimes recognized in civil court. Here, they cannot only seek compensation from the offenders and the institutions that fostered their crimes, but seek the justice and recognition they deserve. At Ross Nott, Attorney at Law, I have more than two decades of experience in civil law and, as a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, have the prowess to aggressively seek relief on my clients' behalf both in and outside the courtroom.
You do not have to let these actions against you or your loved one stand. Contact my firm today to request a free consultation with a dedicated Sacramento personal injury lawyer.
Sexual Assault & Civil Actions
Too often, we see sexual assault crimes not just committed by individuals, but fostered and enabled by institutions that allow this behavior to occur in the first place. For victims, that means the scope of responsibility extends beyond the individual offender and that legal action can be taken to hold these larger, responsible bodies accountable.
- Some examples of civil defendants in sexual assault cases include:
- Religious institutions
- School districts
- Property owners (who should have provided security)
- Hospitals, nursing homes, or other medical facilities
If you have been a victim of this crime and wish to hold the negligent parties responsible for the safety that they failed to provide you, contact my firm today. Even against large defendants with considerable legal resources, I am ready to assert the needs of my clients and ensure that their voices are heard in light of these unacceptable crimes.
