Pursuing sexual abuse and assault injury claims in Illinois

Sexual assault and sexual abuse are two of the most humiliating and emotionally difficult crimes to endure. Most victims of sexual abuse are far more concerned about recovering their peace of mind, sense of safety and emotional health following such a tragic experience, than recovery personal injury damages. However, many victims of sexual assault and abuse have the legal right to pursue such an action in court.

At the Klest Injury Law Firm, we have helped numerous victims of sex crimes recover financial compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, medical costs and other damages caused by the criminal that committed the crimes against them.

It is important for victims of sexual abuse to remember that if they fail to act swiftly to pursue personal injury damages against their attackers in civil court, they could be barred from doing so forever. Indeed, every civil action is subjected to statutes of limitation, which means that victims only have a certain period of time within which to file a legal claim.

The managing attorney at Klest Injury Law Firm played an important role in co-authoring the Illinois 2003 Child Protection Act, which gives victims more time to file civil lawsuits relating to sexual abuse damages. However, relatively short statutes of limitation still apply to certain kinds of sex crimes. As such, victims need to know how statutes of limitation apply to a case before waiting to pursuit it any longer.

Although it may be difficult to make the decision right now, it is important that victims of sex crimes are aware of their potential right to recover financial restitution in civil court and how much time they have to do so.
