Helping Sexual Assault Victims in Dothan, Alabama
Seek Experienced Legal Representation from Our Skilled Crime Victim Lawyers
Sexual assault is considered one of the most horrible and traumatic experiences
in a person’s life. The emotional damage suffered by a victim is
often more pervasive compared to the physical scars. While the cost associated
with therapy and counseling can run significantly high, there is no price
for the emotional pain and suffering a victim incurs from the incident.

Our Firm Can Recover Damages from Sexual Assault
Although a guilty verdict in a criminal case may increase the chances of
succeeding in a civil lawsuit, victims can still pursue civil action even
if criminal charges were ever filed. The standard of proof is not as high
in a civil case in comparison to criminal court. To hold the perpetrator
responsible for sexual assault, the plaintiff must demonstrate that it
is “more likely than not” that the perpetrator committed the
criminal offense, rather than prove guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt”.
Our firm can handle the following types of sexual assault cases:
- Sexual abuse
- Domestic violence
- Child sexual abuse
- Date rape
- Elder abuse
Remember, “sexual assault” is not considered a course of action.
Applicable legal theories to hold a defendant liable include assault or
intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Ready to Help You Get the Justice You Deserve Today
Just because criminal charges will put the perpetrator behind bars, doesn’t
mean they will provide any financial remedy to the victims for medical
costs and emotional distress. Our legal team works on a contingency basis,
which means you do not have to pay for our services unless we win your
case. While you focus on recovering from the incident, we can fight for
your entitled compensation.
