What Civil Courts Do For Sexual Assault Cases
Ohio’s criminal courts rarely offer closure and justice for rape and sexual assault because the prosecution must meet the burden of “beyond a reasonable doubt.” In civil court, we must prove two things: that your story is more likely than not to be true, and that you suffered harm because of it. This lower burden often allows victims to get necessary restitution, closure and justice that they may not otherwise be able to have.
As a part of your case, you may be able to get financial compensation for the events you suffered. This may mean coverage for medical care, therapy, time away from work, and pain and suffering. While nothing can undo your assault, this compensation can give you resources to access the necessary care for your recovery and provide for you throughout.
