Victims of sex crimes are often unaware that they can and should go after the perpetrator using the civil justice system in Texas. Perpetrators are often punished criminally, but can also suffer consequences for their actions through a civil lawsuit. Criminal punishment of the perpetrator aids society by protecting others in the community, but it is often insufficient to help the victim of such a heinous crime recover from the damage done. Nothing can be more violating than to be the victim of a sexual assault. Not only does a sexual abuse crime result in physical injuries to the victim, but it also leads to emotional scars that can last for years. Many victims deal with the pain internally and are unsure where to turn. While a lawsuit cannot make the pain go away, it can help put the victim in a better place going forward.

When we are retained in a sexual assault case, we immediately gather all police reports and other records stemming from the event. We cooperate with the criminal prosecution of the defendant and are careful to protect the victim’s right to civil redress as the criminal side of the case plays out. Our attorneys and in-house private investigator will conduct a thorough investigation of the defendant and the circumstances surrounding the offense. In some cases, the defendant is incarcerated and we will serve them with a lawsuit in jail or prison.

We pursue this process diligently so that the matter can be concluded and the victim may gain a sense of closure from such a traumatic event.
