Sexual Abuse Claims in California

In California, victims of sexual abuse can seek justice in both criminal and civil courts. Civil lawsuits allow victims to hold the perpetrator personally accountable through a personal injury lawsuit, enabling the victim to recover compensation for the harm suffered.

Available Compensation

Victims of sexual abuse may be eligible for various types of compensation, including:

  • Medical Expenses: Any medical treatment related to the sexual abuse, as well as necessary psychological treatment or counseling.
  • Lost Income: If the sexual abuse results in the victim’s inability to work or loss of employment, the victim can sue to recover lost income.
  • Pain and Suffering: Sexual abuse is traumatic, and the pain and suffering may never entirely disappear. The law allows victims to sue for damages related to long-term psychological difficulties, physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish.
  • Punitive Damages: Separate from any criminal penalties, punitive damages are designed to punish the perpetrator through the civil judicial system. Courts often award punitive damages to defendants who intentionally caused harm to the victim.
