Victims of sexual misconduct often face a long struggle to recover from the abuses they experienced. In many cases, sexual misconduct victims are afraid to speak up about what occurred and may even blame themselves. Many victims suffer ongoing emotional after effects of the abuse that can last for months, years or even a lifetime.
While the criminal justice system punishes the perpetrators of sexual misconduct, some victims choose to hold their abuser personally responsible for their wrongful conduct. Victims may also want those who facilitated the misconduct or who looked the other way to be held accountable as well.
In Georgia, the law allows sexual misconduct victims to take legal action against their abusers by filing a civil lawsuit for monetary damages. It is also possible to sue organizations or businesses whose negligence or wrongful acts contributed in some way to the abuse.
