How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   Child sexual abuse takes away so much from the survivors and families impacted. Our society still struggles to find ways to repair the harm done by individual perpetrators and institutions that have covered up child sexual abuse.

Institutional sexual assault is a deeply distressing and reprehensible act that can have severe and lasting effects on its victims. Beyond the physical harm, the emotional and psychological trauma inflicted is profound. The violation of trust is a central component of this heinous crime, as victims often find themselves betrayed by the very institutions or individuals meant to provide support and protection. The breach of trust can lead to a profound sense of vulnerability, shame, and isolation. Survivors may struggle with feelings of guilt and self-blame, further exacerbating the emotional toll. Rebuilding trust becomes an arduous journey, as the trauma experienced can impact relationships, mental health, and the overall well-being of the victim. Addressing and preventing institutional sexual assault requires a comprehensive approach that not only holds perpetrators accountable but also focuses on providing support and healing for the survivors.
