Why The Civil Justice System is Crucial for Sexual Abuse Survivors

Every 73 seconds, someone is sexually assaulted in the US.

Every nine minutes, one of those individuals is a child.

Only 5 in every 1000 perpetrators end up in prison.

Very often, the ONLY way victims can expose predators, prevent crimes and get justice is by filing a civil lawsuit.
