FAQs: Dallas Sexual Assault Attorney Answers Your Questions

Our local attorneys are here to answer your questions. If you are in need of legal advice or still have questions, call our local office today.

Who Can Be Liable For Sexual Assault In Texas?

In Texas, there is the possibility of third-party liability. If a business, medical facility, or other organization has failed to keep you safe and prevent the sex crime from happening, they could be found liable. Additionally, if businesses fail to provide proper security or background checks, they could be found liable for the sexual assault.

Our lawyers will investigate your case and the circumstances to help determine who may be responsible, in addition to the offender.

What Is Considered a Sex Crime Under Texas Law?

In Texas, there is a wide variety of sex crimes. Our attorneys take on the criminal defense lawyer in all types of sexual assault cases. These crimes may include:

  • Rape
  • Sexual Assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Child pornography
  • Child prostitution
  • Indecency with a child
  • Inappropriate student-teacher relationships

What is the Statute of Limitations In Texas?

Like other states, Texas has a statute of limitations for sex crimes. The statute of limitations defines the length of time you can file a legal action. This varies by state, age of the victim, civil and criminal lawsuits.

For a criminal lawsuit when a victim is 18 or older, there is a 10-year statute from the day the offense took place. In a civil lawsuit, the statute is 5 years after the incident for those 18 or older.

If the victim was a child, Texas law has a longer statute and the victim's age and type of offense are factored in. For certain sex crimes, there is no statute of limitations while for others it ranges from 10-20 years after the victim's 18th birthday. To know the specifics of your case, contact our team today for a free consultation.

Why Hire A Child Molestation Lawyer: Free Consultation

Our attorneys realize that hiring a lawyer and pursuing a lawsuit for the sexual assault you experienced does not heal the pain you suffered. Instead, filing a civil lawsuit aims to help alleviate the financial burden of your healing process. This aims to cover medical expenses, therapy sessions, and loss of quality of life.

We believe in building an attorney-client relationship where you can trust us with your representation.
