How Oresky & Associates, PLLC, Can Help if You’ve Been Sexually Assaulted in Queens

Sexual assault can be one of the most traumatic experiences imaginable. A guilty verdict in a criminal case could potentially provide some peace of mind knowing the perpetrator will be punished, but that can do little to directly help you and the consequences you are still likely dealing with daily.

Oresky & Associates, PLLC, can help you explore your legal options and possibly file a civil lawsuit seeking compensation for all of your harm and losses. Other parties aside from the person who committed the assault could also be liable, depending on the situation. When you hire our Queens personal injury attorneys to help with your case, we’ll be able to:

  • Investigate your case to determine every liable party, every source of compensation, and the available evidence in support of your claim
  • Hire experts to strengthen your case and provide testimony on your behalf if needed
  • Take care of all the paperwork, negotiations, and communications related to your case while you rest and recover
  • Keep you informed of your legal options as your case moves forward

How Oresky & Associates, PLLC, Can Help if You’ve Been Sexually Assaulted in Queens

How Prevalent Is Sexual Assault in New York City and the United States?

At the onset, it is important to remember in this context that many, if not most, sexual assaults go unreported. As a result, any statistics regarding sexual assault could be significantly lower than what is actually the case or may only be estimated.

According to data from the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), an American is sexually assaulted every 68 seconds on average. RAINN also states that 433.648 people in the United States general public over the age of 12 were sexually assaulted yearly, on average, in a recent four-year period.

The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault (NYCAASA) has provided statistics on the subject pertaining to NYC specifically. According to NYCAASA research, nearly 50.000 women are the victims of rape alone annually in the city. Rape is only one form of sexual assault, so the actual number of sexual assaults in the city is likely much higher.

What Is My Queens Sexual Assault Case Worth?

Personal injury cases contain so many variables that it is near-impossible to evaluate your case’s worth before speaking with you. This is especially true for sexual assault cases. Assigning a dollar value to things like pain and suffering as well as emotional distress is difficult, and those aspects of the assault could make up most of your claim. That said, it’s worth mentioning the following factors that generally influence the value of most cases:

  • The types of injuries and harm you have suffered and their severity
  • Whether you’re expected to fully recover from the assault
  • The extent to which you’ve had to miss work
  • The costs associated with treating your injuries

The cases that involve the most serious injuries that most heavily impact the victim’s day-to-day life tend to be worth the most, but the matter is significantly more complex than that. The best way to find out how much your case might be worth is to schedule a free consultation with one of our Queens sexual assault attorneys.

What Kinds of Damages Can Sexual Assault Victims Obtain in Queens, NY?

Sexual assault victims in Queens can aim to collect economic damages as well as non-economic damages for their injuries. Punitive damages might also be available in some cases.

Economic Damages

Economic damages reflect the financial consequences of the assault, such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages and income
  • Decreased earning capacity
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Rehabilitation and counseling

Non-economic Damages

Non-economic damages reflect the other types of harm you have suffered that aren’t financial in nature, like:

  • Pain and suffering
  • PTSD
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages could also be awarded, hinging on the facts of your case. These damages are meant to “punish” the at-fault party for their conduct rather than compensate you directly (though they still do, ultimately).

Our Queens Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help With Any Type of Sexual Assault Case

Sexual assault is an example of a sex crime, encapsulating a broad range of sexual conduct under New York law. Some of the types of sexual assault cases our attorneys can help with include, but are not limited to, the following:

How Do I Prove Liability for Sexual Assault in Queens, New York?

Establishing liability for a sexual assault in Queens is much different in the civil context than it is in the criminal context. The prosecution has the burden of proof in every criminal case and must assert every element of the assailant’s guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.” This is the most strict burden of proof threshold currently in the law.

The injured victim has the burden of proof in the civil context, and the threshold is “by a preponderance of the evidence.” This means you’ll need to show that it is more likely true than not that the at-fault party sexually assaulted you. Even if it is only 51% likely that the person is liable, you can still win the case. This is why it is possible to win your civil case even if the person who assaulted you is acquitted in criminal court.

Depending on your case’s facts, other parties could possibly be held liable for your damages aside from your assailant. New York premises liability law mandates that certain property owners keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. If they fail to do so, they could be held liable for harm that occurs as a result.

For example, if a nightclub owner fails to provide adequate security for their patrons and an assault occurs, the owner might be held accountable for the incident. This same line of reasoning can apply, in one form or another, to most premises in the state.

Contact our legal team today to learn about who could be liable for your sexual assault-related injuries.

How Long Do I Have To File a Lawsuit for Sexual Assault in New York State?

New York State has laws on the books that set deadlines for when lawsuits must be filed within its jurisdiction. The amount of time you will have will depend on the type of party you are looking to sue and under what cause of action.

For example, by default, you have one year from the date of the assault to file a lawsuit against the person who assaulted you. However, if the person is convicted in criminal court, you’ll have up to seven years instead.

New York’s general personal injury statute of limitations applies if you intend to file a premises liability lawsuit. In those cases, you will have three years to file your lawsuit.

Because of the variability involved in these deadlines, it’s best to reach out to our law office if you’re unclear on how much time you have in your situation. We can let you know during your free case review.
