We Will Help You Confront Your Aggressors With The Full Force Of The Law
Have you been sexually assaulted or harassed? Most people believe their shot at justice lies solely with the criminal justice system. While law enforcement and the criminal courts work hard to ensure that sex offenders are swiftly dealt with, victims should consider civil action as a means to achieve the justice they deserve. Although the criminal justice system focuses on rectifying societal wrongs by punishing and isolating perpetrators of wrongful acts, it does little to redress victims. Victims still incur medical and counseling expenses to treat their physical and emotional injuries. The civil justice system is designed to compensate victims for the injuries they wrongfully sustained at the hands of others. To understand whether you qualify for remedies under the civil justice system, you should contact an experienced Plano sexual assault attorney for legal advice. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, our legal team has over five decades of collective experience representing personal injury plaintiffs, including victims of sexual assault and violence. Due to the traumatic nature of sexual assault matters, we take a compassionate approach to representation by holding you and your experiences in the highest regard for confidentiality and respect, all while aggressively advocating to bring your aggressor to justice.

Why Should You Have To Pay For Wrongs Committed Against You?
Recovering from a traumatic encounter with sexual assault or other violent offense exacts a heavy toll on the survivor. In many ways, sexual assault victims are just as traumatized as an amputee in a car accident. No matter how, and by whom, you were assaulted, we will fight for your right to hold your attackers responsible for your losses.
Types Of Sexual Assault
We have experience representing those who survived abuse involving the following:
- Childhood sexual abuse
- Statutory rape
- Sexual harassment and workplace misconduct
- Sexual assault or abuse
- Sexual molestation involving attackers holding positions of power and authority
Although many of these offenses have a criminal justice counterpart, the prosecution may not have enough evidence to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In contrast, a civil action for sexual assault and abuse only requires the plaintiff to prove the defendant’s liability by a “preponderance of the evidence.” Thus, in cases where evidence of the defendant’s culpability failed to rise to the high standard necessary for imposing criminal penalties, a civil court may easily find a sufficient basis to impose civil liability for rectifying the plaintiff’s injuries. Sexual assault defendants are liable for the plaintiff’s damages, including:
- Medical and therapeutic expenses;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Loss of earnings;
- Loss of future income; and
- Punitive damages.
