Who can be held liable in civil sexual assault cases?

First and foremost, the person who committed the sexual assault will be the person whom a civil case is filed against in most cases. In addition to the penalties placed on them through a criminal case, they can be held liable for the victim’s damages and costs. However, there are other parties who, although not playing a direct role in the assault, may be partially responsible for the situation which led to the assault. This can include property owners, managers, security companies, and more.
