A growing number of survivors of sexual abuse are looking to civil suits as a means to obtain justice and accountability.
Any survivor who wishes to institute a civil claim should be well-established in supportive therapy before starting the action. It is not a good idea to start a lawsuit shortly after recovering memories of abuse or acknowledging the issue of abuse in your life.
No case can be feasible unless the perpetrator is “lawsuit worthy.” Theoretical cases with no hope of collecting damages are not handled well by our judicial system and only serve to further disappoint, invalidate and frustrate victims. For these reasons most lawyers carefully screen victim recourse cases and only accept those with a good chance of success. When those cases are identified and successful claims are brought, victims can benefit from making their perpetrators financially and morally accountable.
