The victims of sexual abuse in any capacity have suffered a heartrending trauma that may have a severe, lasting impact. While we cannot undo the trauma they have had to endure, we can assist with a civil lawsuit to provide justice and to hold the perpetrator and/or other responsible parties accountable for what happened. A compassionate personal injury attorney could help.
Here at Libbey Law Offices, our Anchorage sexual abuse lawyers are passionate about representing the victims of abuse and fighting for the compensation they need to continue healing and moving forward from this tragedy. Survivors’ rights have been violated egregiously – and we want to help right the wrongs against them.
Civil Action for Sexual Abuse Cases
Those who have been sexually abused have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator whether or not he or she has been charged, convicted, or acquitted through the criminal justice system. Civil cases are entirely separate from criminal cases, and the burden of proof is often lower in civil cases.
If you are seeking justice for abuse you have endured, our sexual abuse attorneys in Anchorage are capable of building a strong case on your behalf. We will listen to your story and familiarize ourselves with the details of your case before pursuing action.
Even if there is no police report or criminal charges, you are entitled to pursue a civil lawsuit and seek damages for the wrongs against you.
You may eligible for compensation for:
- Lost wages: If you missed work or had to leave a job due to abuse, compensation can cover your lost income
- Medical expenses: If you required medical treatment after the incident or need ongoing counseling, you may recover compensation for these expenses
- Pain and suffering: Alaska law allows victims to sue for their emotional distress and physical pain
- Punitive damages: Punitive damages may be awarded to punish the offender for his or her harmful actions
