FLORIDA CHILD MOLESTATION VICTIM LAWYERS

What is a crime victim compensation lawsuit in Florida?

A child molestation victim compensation lawsuit is different from a criminal case in that it does not require the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed a crime. Instead, in a civil lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant is liable for the damages claimed.

If you are considering filing a child molestation victim compensation lawsuit in Florida, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney who can help. In a civil claim, a lawsuit may be brought against all parties who contributed to the incident. This can include the perpetrator, any business or organization who may have contributed to the incident, and any person or organization who may have failed to prevent the incident.

For example, if your child was molested at school, you may be able to file a claim against the school district for negligence. If your child was molested by a clergy member, you may be able to file a claim against the church or religious organization.

The amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive will depend on the facts of your case. It is important to speak with an experienced child molestation victim compensation attorney who can help you understand your legal options and pursue the compensation you deserve.

How a Civil Claim is Different than a Criminal Case for Child Molestation Victim Compensation

In a child molestation civil claim, the plaintiff does not typically need to prove that the defendant committed a crime. Instead, the plaintiff must generally prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant is liable for the damages claimed. This means that it is not necessary to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed a crime. The civil case often focuses on the crime itself, like how it happened, why it may have happened, and who could or should have prevented it.

 

In contrast, in a criminal child molestation case, the prosecutor must typically prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed a crime. If the prosecutor is unable to meet this burden of proof, the defendant will be found not guilty and will not be subject to any criminal penalties.

However, even if the defendant is found not guilty in a criminal child molestation case, the victim may still be entitled to compensation in a civil claim.
