Compassionately Representing Both Children & Adults
Far too often, people in positions of power – be they priests, coaches,

of civil claims involving sexual assault. We know how to uncover evidence,

Damages in Sexual Abuse Cases
Sexual assault can cause lifelong damage. On top of the physical injuries
they suffer, victims often bear permanent emotional scars and require
extensive therapy or ongoing mental health care. By taking legal action,
you may not be able to undo the trauma, but you can obtain the compensation
you need to start to heal.
Potential damages in a sexual abuse lawsuit include:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and PTSD
- Therapy costs
- Present and future medical care
- Punitive damages
Perhaps the most challenging aspect of a sexual assault civil claim is
that there are usually no liability insurance policies involved. This
means you may have to pursue compensation directly from the perpetrator
– who may not have many assets or much wealth – rather than
a powerful insurance company. For this reason, it can be difficult to
collect in some cases – but at The Villari Firm, PLLC, we do not
let that stop us from pursuing the financial compensation you deserve.
