Who Can I Sue for Sexual Assault in Jacksonville, Florida? 

First and foremost, if you have survived a sexual crime, please seek help from one of the many organizations here in Jacksonville, Florida. You may benefit from the counseling and support provided by organizations like the Women's Center (who also provide services to men). A lawsuit is a long and stressful process and your health and well being should be the main focus. 

If you decide to pursue a lawsuit, you may wonder who exactly you should sue. Of course, the first person to consider is the perpetrator. Often though, the person who committed the crime may not be the only one responsible for what happened. For example, if a person is assaulted at a bar, there may be reasons why the business should be held responsible. Was the assault committed by one of their employees? Were there previous incidents that were swept under the rug? Was there proper security? A lawyer can help review all the circumstances and advise you on whether there is a claim against any other parties.
