Have you been the target of a sexual assault in Las Vegas? Whether this happened to you while on vacation or in your Las Vegas home, it’s unacceptable. The law gives you the right to seek justice not just in criminal court, but also in civil court. A Las Vegas sexual assault lawyer can help you hold the perpetrator financially accountable.
Van Law is a Las Vegas personal injury law firm that has been advocating for victims’ rights for nearly 14 years. We founded our firm with the firm conviction that people who are hurt by the negligence or cruelty of others deserve an advocate who is willing to go the distance to hold wrongdoers accountable. Sexual assault is devastating to live through, and we want to help victims assert their right to collect damages.
Why Should I Take My Las Vegas Sexual Assault Case to Van Law?
Suffering through a sexual assault is a nightmare that no one should have to endure. If you have survived a sexual assault, it’s important to have an advocate who will be as compassionate with you as they will be tough on whomever assaulted you. Our lead attorney, Sandy Van, is an experienced attorney who is dedicated to fighting for client rights.
Our entire team, including our sexual assault attorneys, believe in getting justice for our clients in Las Vegas. When you bring your case to us, you know you will get a firm that wants the best for their clients and is willing to fight for it. This is the kind of representation you will get from Van Law.
What Can a Las Vegas Sexual Assault Lawyer Do for Me?
Criminal charges are not the only penalty that people who commit sexual assault can face. As a victim, you also have the right to demand financial damages for the wrong they did to you. A Las Vegas sexual assault lawyer from our team can help establish that the perpetrator caused you to suffer both economic and non-economic damages when they assaulted you.
We can do that by gathering evidence in your case, consulting with mental health professionals, and making sure to file your case before the expiration of the statute of limitations in Nevada. Additionally, our attorneys can negotiate directly with the lawyers representing the defendant in your case. If those negotiations do not bear fruit, we will put our skills to work preparing both you and your case for trial.
At trial, we will represent you with determination and focus. We will present the strongest case possible to the courts in asserting your right to demand compensation from the perpetrator(s).
There May Be More Than One Liable Party in Your Case
There can be more than one person who is responsible for damages in a sexual assault case. Sometimes, during the evidence-gathering process, we discover that the sexual assault could have been prevented if not for the negligence of a third party who may not have committed the assault.
If, for example, the person who assaulted you was an employee of a company or government agency that knew they had a history of sexual assault but didn’t take adequate steps to prevent the assault from taking place, the company or agency may share liability with the perpetrator. Or perhaps a casino didn’t make sure that your room was secure.
If we find evidence of negligence by another party contributed to your sexual assault or made it easier for the perpetrator in your case to assault you, we will name them in our damage demand also.
What Are the Damages in a Sexual Assault Case?
Sexual assault cases can cause the victim to suffer both physical and mental trauma. Obviously, the cost of any medical attention made necessary by the assault would be part of our economic damages demand. The same would hold true for the cost of transportation to medical facilities from the scene of the assault or any mental health care you may require to aid in your recovery.
However, the economic damages are only part of the equation. Sexual assault victims have the right to demand compensation for the pain and suffering or mental anguish brought on by the assault. A Las Vegas sexual assault lawyer from our firm can assist you in tabulating both your economic and non-economic damages. Then, we’ll demand that amount from the liable party and do our best to get you the compensation you deserve.
How Much Is a Las Vegas Sexual Assault Case Worth?
Sexual assault cases have several different variables that can impact their value. Additionally, Van Law has been representing victims long enough to know that no two sexual assault cases are exactly alike. That’s why it would not be appropriate for us to estimate the value of your case without a complete picture of the facts.
We strongly suggest that you reach out to our office for a free consultation. Let us hear your side of the story and take some time to consider the merits of your case. Then we will be in a better position to advise you on the potential value of your case. Remember, this consultation is not only free, but also comes with zero obligation. You will still be free to consult with other sexual assault attorneys. We just want the opportunity to earn your trust.
