The Effects of Sexual Assault on Victims
Sexual assault can consist of groping, inappropriate touching, unwanted kissing, attempted rape, rape, etc. There are various physical effects that victims could suffer. These physical effects could include the following: fractures, scrapes, lacerations, bruises, organ damage (specifically to reproductive organs), sexually transmitted infections, injuries to genitals, etc. In addition to these physical effects, victims could also be left suffering from mental and emotional trauma, including but not limited to the following: depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, fear, etc. Without a doubt, the physical, mental, and emotional effects of sexual assault can be lasting.
If you suffered sexual assault, you could have grounds to file a civil lawsuit. Without a doubt, you could sue the individual that assaulted you; however, you could also have grounds to sue other parties that could be liable in one way or another. Typically, you can sue the property owner for a sexual assault that occurred on their premises; normally this is for the failure to identify and address any hazards present on the premises that could contribute to sexual assault (like poorly lit areas, lack of security, lack or surveillance, isolated areas, etc.). You could even sue a property owner for their negligent hiring, if one of their employees attacked you. Who else could be liable? Depending on the situation, you might also be able to sue the security guard company for the negligent hiring, supervising, training, etc.; this applies when a security guard is an attacker as well as when a guard fails to act to prevent an attack. Of course, it is also possible for your employer to be liable under some circumstances (like if another employee attacked you, if they failed to hire security, etc.).
