For many victims of sexual abuse, the trauma of their assault lingers for years. While some survivors are able to regain a sense of normalcy in their day-to-day lives, others are left with lasting emotional scars. Sexual abuse – whether perpetrated by a teacher, a coach, or a clergy member – is the ultimate betrayal of trust, and victims have the right to hold their abusers financially accountable in a court of law.

Victims have the right to seek monetary reparations from all those who are responsible for their suffering – including any organizations or institutions that enabled the abuse to take place.

What to do after a sexual assault
Victims of sexual abuse are often confused, frightened, and emotionally drained. Your own physical safety should be top priority. Reach out to a trusted friend or family member for help, report the incident to authorities, and get a SANE exam at a hospital as soon as possible. SANE nurses have special training in the psychological, medical, and forensic examination of sexual abuse and rape victims. The evidence provided in a SANE exam can advance your claim in a civil court proceeding.
