Bathurst Sexual Assault Lawyer


Everyone is entitled to have control over their own body. When someone perpetrates sexual assault, they take that control away from their victim. By engaging in any kind of sexual activity with another person without their consent, a perpetrator of sexual assault can cause their victim to sustain years’ or even decades’ worth of psychological damage and emotional distress. Often, in order to properly address their trauma, survivors of sexual assault are required to go to great personal expense.

The financial losses incurred by survivors of sexual assault can be substantial. People who have been victimized may only be able to truly face their trauma by working with a professional in the field of psychology or psychiatry. This important work is a process that can take many years. The cost of therapy and counselling can be expensive; it is a vital, potentially life-saving service that many victims of sexual assault cannot afford.

Even if a survivor of sexual assault has the financial stability to pay for their mental health services out of pocket, the emotional and psychological trauma they acquire as a direct result of their assault may have adverse impacts on their ability to maintain social and romantic relationships. Additionally, they may find it impossible to continue working, pursue educational opportunities, or complete vocational training. If this is the case, because of the effects of another person’s criminal behaviour, sexual assault survivors may incur financial losses related to lost wages or a reduced future earning capability.

In addition to these financial losses, sexual assault survivors may incur other economic or non-economic damages, including:

  • Mileage for medical appointments
  • Failure to reach potential
  • Loss of interdependent relationship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more

Any non-consensual sexual activity is sexual assault. Also referred to as sexual battery, sexual assault can include violent, aggressive, unwanted acts perpetrated against another person, including rape and attempted rape. However, other non-consensual actions and behaviours can also be included in the definition of sexual assault. These may include forced kissing, groping, unwanted touching, grabbing, and other forms of harassment.

If you were the victim of sexual assault, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
