South Carolina Sexual Assault Lawyers
Sexual Assault Lawyers
A sexual assault is one of the more horrific attacks a person can go through, as it takes both a severe physical and emotion toll on the victim. Rapists and other sexual predators are usually prosecuted under criminal statutes. However, filing a civil suit for damages is an alternative or additional recourse that a victim can pursue. If the sexual predator gained access to the victims while acting in an official capacity for an employer, that employer can be found negligent and held liable for damages, as well. Sexual assault is an ongoing problem in South Carolina, and the personal injury lawyers at Joe and Martin Law Firm have the experience necessary to handle any case as serious as sexual assault.

We Handle Sexual Assault Cases With Care
Due to the serious and personal nature of the offense, our professional sexual assault attorneys are trained to accommodate the understandable sensitivities of rape victims. We handle all negotiations with the liable parties and their insurers on our client's behalf in order to keep them insulated from the stress of what could otherwise be extremely emotionally painful discussions. This helps facilitate a more peaceful recovery process and environment for our client. We can also send counselors to our client's home or treatment facility to discuss all matters of their case as to not inconvenience them during recuperation.
The damages following a sexual assault can require expensive and extensive medical care to heal the victim's immediate and long-term physical and emotional scarring. Treatment from paramedics and doctors as well as months of rehabilitation and therapy can create a mountain of exorbitant medical bills. We take your health as seriously as you do. That's why we can provide you with access to a wide network of medical experts as well as counsels and therapists that you may require after such a vicious experience. We, of course, provide all of this to our clients at no upfront fees or out-of-pocket costs. We are only compensated for services rendered after our clients receive the full financial compensation they deserve via a settlement or favorable trial verdict.
Building Your Sexual Assault Case
In a criminal trial, proving liability of a rapist or sexual predator requires evidence and facts to determine guilt. However, if the person on trial for sexual assault is not convicted in criminal court, they can still be tried in civil court as the standard for a finding of liability is lower. For a civil case, our firm employs private investigators to help obtain eye witness testimony, crime scene evidence, and other facts to support your claim. Many sexual assaults occur in a public or work environment and may involve multiple victims. These other victims can all testify in support of your claim.
