Sexual Assault and Related Injuries

Sexual assault is an umbrella term that covers many different types of sexual misconduct. In general, “sexual assault” can include any of the following:

  • Rape
  • Attempted rape
  • Fondling, groping, and any unwanted touching
  • Forced kissing
  • Penetration of any kind (with objects, fingers, etc.)
  • Sodomy
  • Forcing the victim to touch the attacker
  • Forcing the victim to perform any sexual act on the attacker
  • Making sexually explicit jokes or comments
  • Showing the victim inappropriate images
  • And more

Sexual assault can lead to significant harm. Victims could suffer physical, mental, and emotional harm. Some examples of the harm that could occur include injuries to reproductive organs, injuries to genitals, sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancies and related complications, fractures, lacerations, scrapes, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, depression, anxiety, panic, etc. In addition, victims of sexual assault can be at higher risk of self harm as well as substance abuse.

Can I File a Lawsuit?

Yes, you could be eligible to file a lawsuit. Many people might mistakenly believe that they may not have the right to sue for injuries sustained during a protest because they are willingly in a protest. The right to protest is a constitutional right. If you are injured while you are protesting, you may have the right to sue based on the details surrounding the incident and the harm that you suffered.

Who can I sue? The answer to this question may vary based on the details of your claim. You may have grounds to sue any of the following:

  • The protest organizer – specifically if the organizer incited, directed, or ordered violence.
  • The attacker – you could sue the attacker for negligent or intentional acts
  • A government entity – if the incident happened on government property, the government entity could be liable for any harm that occurred on the premises associated with negligence, including but not limited to a lack of security, poor maintenance, etc.
  • A property owner – if the incident occurred on private property, then the private property owners could be liable for any harm that occurred on the premises caused by negligence such as hazardous conditions on the premises, a lack of maintenance, a lack of security, etc.
  • Law enforcement agencies – if the incident occurred due to the use of excessive force, a lack of action, or any sort of negligence, law enforcement agencies could be liable. The same applies to security guard companies.

What does this all mean? If you were sexually assaulted while you were at a Columbia encampment, you could have grounds to sue. If your attack occurred due to the poor conditions in the university, such as the lack of security, or because of the inaction of local law enforcement, you could have grounds to sue the University and possibly even a law enforcement agency.

Our sexual abuse lawyers here at the Downtown L.A. Law Group are ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to pursue your claim.
