You can sue for sexual assault in Kentucky. The case will be against the person that committed the assault and other defendants responsible for safety. For example, if an assault takes place in a hotel the lawsuit will likely include the hotel for negligent security. If the assault took place on campus, bar, or place of work the lawsuit will include those defendants. A personal injury lawyer is the type of lawyer that works on the civil aspect of a sexual assault case. The Commonwealth of Kentucky will probably charge the defendant as well.
