How do you sue your abuser?

When people face material and psychological damage or physical injuries, the law provides for the right of these persons to claim compensation for such damage, in the form of money, to pay for medical costs, lost wages, physical pain or psychological suffering and in certain cases, to punish the abuser. The court initiates the civic trial at the request of a person who claims the defence of a violated or contested right, freedom or legitimate interest.

To file a lawsuit in court, you will most likely need a lawyer. You can call the Women’s Law Centre or other organisations to obtain assistance in identifying a lawyer that would represent your case.

Below, we provide you with an overview of some useful actions to take when filing a civil case against the abuser.
