Can a Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice for the Trauma They May Have Experienced By Courtney Rankin?

A civil lawsuit can serve as an avenue for victims seeking justice from the trauma of sexual abuse, especially when organizations are implicated. By initiating legal action, survivors can hold institutions that may have enabled or failed to prevent the abuse accountable for their actions. Civil suits allow victims to seek compensation for the physical, emotional, and psychological harm they have endured.

Additionally, these lawsuits contribute to raising awareness about the prevalence of sexual abuse and fostering a culture that prioritizes the safety and well-being of individuals over organizational interests. As a result, survivors gain a platform to share their experiences.  Thereby challenging the culture of silence surrounding sexual abuse and empowering others to come forward.
