Sexual assaults are devastating experiences which often have physical and emotional effects that last a lifetime. Sexual assault describes any type of sexual activity the victim did not agree to, whether the abuse occurred once or more than once. If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse, you should file a criminal charge with the police. After that, you can also contact a personal injury attorney who can help you file a civil lawsuit against the attacker in order to attain monetary compensation for the damages related to the physical and mental injuries incurred during the assault. With regard to sexual assault which occurred while the victim was under the supervision or care of an organization or institution, the victim can hold them responsible for being negligent and failing to protect the victim.
