SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWYER LAS VEGAS, NV

Sexual Assault Lawyer Las Vegas, NV Trusts Provides Civil Justice for Victims of Sexual Assault

According to national statistics, a victim is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds in this country. One in three women will be sexually assaulted during their lifetimes. This means there are more than 320,000 victims, 12-years-old or older, who are raped or sexually assaulted each year. The majority of sexual assault victims are under the age of 30.

Two-thirds of sexual assault attacks are not reported to the police. Many victims of assault do not tell anyone about their attack, due to fear, shame or embarrassment. In many cases, even if the sexual assault is reported to police, the police drag their feet and do not bring criminal charges.  But, there are other ways to seek justice besides criminal court.

The effects of sexual violence on victims are often long-term and devastating. One of the most profound effects many victims suffer is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), with almost 95 percent of victims experience symptoms of PTSD during the few weeks following the attack. Nine months later, 30 percent of victims still suffer from PTSD symptoms.

The suicide rate for sexual assault victims is also high, with 33 percent of victims reporting they consider killing themselves, and almost 15 percent attempting it. Although many violent crimes can cause victims to experience moderate to severe symptoms of emotional distress, almost 70 percent of sexual assault victims report suffering from these symptoms, more than any other type of violent crime.

Whether or not the perpetrator responsible for the attack is ever arrested and prosecuted in criminal court, victims have a right under Nevada law to file sexual assault injury lawsuits against them in civil court. At Nadia von Magdenko & Associates, we aggressively advocate for sexual assault victims in obtaining the justice and damages they deserve for the losses they have suffered because of the abuser.

Damages Claimed in an Injury Lawsuit

While every case is different, there are certain damages that may apply to your case that a Las Vegas, NV sexual assault lawyer can pursue for you. These include:

  •       All past, present, and future medical bills for treatment of injuries sustained in the assault(s)
  •       Lost wages while the victim recovered from their attack, as well as any future income if the victim has suffered any physical or emotional disabilities and is unable to work
  •       Emotional anguish
