Michigan Sexual Abuse, Rape & Molestation Lawsuits

Rape and sexual assaults are very serious crimes which carry heavy penalties in light of the physical and psychological harm they cause to the victims.  While a criminal prosecution often succeeds in punishing the offender and, hopefully, in deterring others from committing the same crime in the future, prosecutions do not always do a good job of providing compensation to the victim for her injuries.  Sometimes a civil lawsuit may better compensate a victim for the immediate and long-term physical and psychological injuries caused by the perpetrator's actions.

Michigan Sexual Assault Lawsuits

Unfortunately, too often, victims of sexual assaults do not realize they can file a civil lawsuit against the attacker.  There are a variety of legal theories under which the victim can sue the attacker.  These legal theories include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • False imprisonment
  • Intentional infliction of emotional distress
  • Negligent infliction of emotional distress
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Defamation, which includes libel and slander
  • Violation of stalking statutes or aggravated stalking statutes
  • Negligent transmission of a sexually transmitted disease
  • Wrongful death

Do You Need A Michigan Sexual Assault Lawyer?

The most important thing for a victim of a rape or sexual assault to know is that they do not have to rely on the police or prosecutor to punish the perpetrator.  They can initiate a lawsuit themselves and seek compensation for their injuries.  This compensation could include an award for the psychological suffering the assault caused them to experience.  A well-qualified lawyer will be able to evaluate which legal theory to use in light of the facts of the assault and the evidence available to prove it.
