If you are a victim of sexual assault, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the offender in civil court – in addition to pursuing criminal prosecution.

  • Rape

Civil Lawsuits Based on Sexual Assault

Sexual assault victims can file a personal injury lawsuit against the perpetrator of the offense(s). Although there is no “cause of action” – or legal theory – called sexual assault in civil law, you may use civil assault or battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress as your causes of action.

How to Prove the Offender Liable for Sexual Assault

To hold the offender liable for sexual assault, you must show that it is “more likely than not” that the perpetrator committed the misconduct. This is legal concept is known as a “preponderance of the evidence.”

In some cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit against another party besides the perpetrator. For instance, if the offense happened at a place of business, school, place of worship, or any other institution, that entity could also be held liable for allowing such a crime to occur.
