Criminal vs. Civil Case for Sexual Assault
As the victim of sexual assault, you may think a criminal case is your only option against the perpetrator. This is not the case. As a survivor, you likely suffered physical injuries, emotional distress, mental anguish or other damages that could qualify you to seek compensation through the civil justice system. A civil claim could give you the financial stability you need to move forward.
While a criminal case can sentence the Uber or Lyft driver to jail or probation for sexually assaulting you, a civil claim can lead to thousands of dollars in compensation for your losses. You may have grounds to file a claim not only against the assailant, but also against the rideshare company. If the company negligently failed to take steps to prevent the sexual assault, it could be liable for your damages.
