An Attorney Protects Your Legal Rights as a Sexual Assault Survivor
Each state has different requirements and statutes of limitations for filing a sexual assault lawsuit. A sexual assault is considered personal injury, and in Texas, the statute of limitations under TX § 16 is generally two years from the date of the incident. Certain factors, such as your age at the time the assault occurred, could affect the statute in your specific case.
A collegiate sexual assault attorney with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will evaluate your case and explain your legal options. If you decide to move forward with our firm, your lawyer and our team of investigators and paralegals can determine how we may hold the defendant accountable and seek recovery.
Liability in a Sexual Assault Lawsuit
Our goal is to help you pursue recovery from all liable parties. In the case of Dr. George Tyndall, for example, the University of Southern California (USC) should be held accountable for his alleged sexual assaults. As his employer, USC did not remove Dr. Tyndall from his job as a staff gynecologist at the student health center despite many complaints. That is why a lawsuit in this matter would name both Dr. Tyndall and USC as defendants.
How More Than One Party May Be Held Liable
There are other examples of multiple liable parties in a sexual assault lawsuit:
- The offender is a school professor, administrator, or other employee
- The offender is a member of a national fraternity
- If the assault took place where lighting and security was insufficient to protect you
