Our legal guidance and support can ensure you receive physical and psychological health care. Recoverable damages for sexual assault survivors can include financial and non-financial compensation. Our law firm will help you hold the offender and any other liable parties financially accountable for the action or lack of appropriate action.

How the State of California Defines Sexual Assault
Sexual assault can take on a variety of forms. At Greenberg Gross, we are champions and advocates for individuals whose cases stem from the following types of assaults:
- Child pornography
- Child sexual assault
- Internet sex crimes
- Statutory rape
This list is representative, not exhaustive. If you or a loved one were victimized by any form of sexual assault, we can help. Our Sacramento sexual assault lawyer will fight to recover the financial compensation you are entitled to receive.
We Bring Compassion and Kindness to Your Case
Every civil lawsuit is the result of some form of physical, emotional, or financial harm or injury. Cases that stem from sexual assault can be more emotionally charged than others. Our client advocates are passionate about fighting for your rights when you need kindness and support the most.
Damages Our Law Firm Fights to Recover for You
Nothing can atone for the suffering you or someone you care about endured. We understand that. We pursue financial compensation for you with two goals in mind:
- Enabling you to obtain all the help you need to optimize your recovery
- Holding at-fault parties accountable for their past, current, and future actions
Every case is different, and we will carefully investigate your case to identify anyone who bears financial liability. It will vary on a case-by-case basis, but can include:
- Associates and relatives
- Church personnel
- Counselors and therapists
- Daycare employees
- Healthcare professionals
- Public and private staff
- Sports team and staff
- Employers and co-workers
- Property owners
We handle every aspect and all details of your case. We respect your privacy and wishes by handling all case-related communication on your behalf. We also handle evidence collection rather than taxing you or your family. You focus on your recovery. Our team will focus on building your case.
Any medical care you required as the result of a sexual assault can be recovered via your civil lawsuit. This includes all past, current, and future medical care including prescribed medications and assistive medical devices.
Mental Health Care Expenses
Mayo Clinic research cites sexual assault as one cause of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Your compensation request can include the costs of treating PTSD and other psychological care you require.
The trauma of sexual abuse can make returning to your usual work schedule difficult. In some cases, it can be impossible. We help you recoup the cost of all lost wages related to your assault and recovery.
Pain and Suffering
Every victim of sexual assault will handle their recovery in their own way. We pursue compensation for your traumatic memories, anxiety, depression, and loss of quality of life.
Why AB 218 Is Important to Your Sexual Assault Case
Recovering from the trauma of sexual assault takes time. Your physical and emotional recovery timeline should not impede you from pursuing compensation. Recently, the state of California enacted Assembly Bill (AB) 218.
It extends the filing deadline on sexual assault civil cases, giving victims until:
- They turn 40 years old (22 years after they turn 18 years old)
- Five years from the date psychological harm was discovered
If the original statute of limitations in your case expired, AB 218 also benefits you. It allows you up to three years to file a lawsuit against the assailant. We understand that correctly interpreting the filing deadlines can be complicated. We take the mystery out of your case and ensure your right to recover compensation does not run out of time.
