Why do you need a sexual assault lawyer?

Date: Aug 12, 2016

Emotional, physical, or sexual assault can be incredibly hard to come to terms with. While the last thing on anyone's mind is money, a compensation settlement may be available to help you obtain the support services you need you need to come to terms with what has happened.

The compassionate and professional compensation lawyers at Gerard Malouf and Partners have both the experience and knowledge needed to find a successful resolution to your case.

Can I file a lawsuit?

Victims of sexual assault will often file a lawsuit against the perpetrator through the civil court. However, it is not only the perpetrator who can be sued, it also includes organisations and establishments that were privy to the abuse in some way.

Gerard Malouf and Partners have made a number of successful claims for compensation against a variety of organisations and individuals. Some of these include: 

  • State and federal community service departments, such as the Department of Community Services in New South Wales.
  • Religious organisations, including specific denominations such as the Catholic Church.
  • Educational and scholastic organisations, including public, private and boarding schools
  • Professionals in positions of trust, such as teachers and doctors.
