It is possible for survivors of sexual abuse to secure compensation for their harms in civil court. In addition to pursuing damages from the assailant who committed the acts, victims may be able to sue other entities and organizations that bear responsibility for facilitating the abuse. Successful litigation can provide victims with closure and financial assistance to cope with their physical and emotional injuries.
