Why File a Civil Lawsuit for Sexual Assault in Michigan?
Any form of sexual assault is a serious crime that can result in severe physical, emotional, and psychological harm. Offenders should be prosecuted in criminal court to be punished for their actions. However, while this may result in steep fines and jail time, it does not always lead to restitution paid to the victim.
That is where a civil case comes in. In civil court, we can help you sue your attacker or any third party who is responsible for the attack, such as a landlord or store owner who failed to keep their premises safe. To win the case and recover compensation for your damages, you will need to demonstrate the offender’s wrongdoing according to a preponderance of evidence standard. This means that you must show that the sexual assault was more than 50% likely to have occurred.
When you take civil action against your attacker or another responsible party, you may recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
