Bridgewater Sexual Assault Lawyer


Regardless of gender, anyone can– and may– be the victim of sexual assault. The overwhelming majority of sexual assault victims, however, are women. And despite a common misconception that assaults are usually perpetrated by unknown criminals against random strangers, in fact, most victims of sexual assault have a personal, professional, or otherwise pre-existing relationship with their abuser. This fact may account for one of the many reasons the victims of sexual assault often choose to remain silent about the abuse they endured.

However, if you were the victim of sexual assault, you do not need to suffer in silence. Sexual assault survivors often incur financial losses as a result of the crime perpetrated against them. These financial losses can be substantial, as sexual assault survivors often require ongoing, long-term psychological counselling, psychiatric treatment, or other forms of guidance over lengthy periods of time. If you are an assault survivor, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

In this province, there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault claims. As such, no matter how far in the past your assault took place, you may be able to take legal action against your abuser in order to pursue financial compensation. By working with our sexual assault lawyers serving Bridgewater you may be able to file a civil claim against your abuser to recover damages you have incurred because of their criminal actions. These damages may include:

  • Psychological counselling
  • Prescription medication
  • Mileage for medical appointments
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capability
  • Failure to reach potential
  • Loss of interdependent relationship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more

While no amount of money will be able to change the past, by working with our Bridgewater sexual assault lawyers, you may be able to find a sense of closure and justice. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we are passionate about helping survivors of sexual assault in the local community receive the compensation they so justly deserve.

Whenever someone engages in non-consensual sexual activity with another person, they have committed sexual assault. These activities are not limited to violent actions like rape and attempted rape; they could include other forms of harassment including groping, grabbing, unwanted touching, and forced kissing. Consent is an agreement between two adults that is active, ongoing, and revocable. Committing any kind of sexual activity without consent could have long-term psychological and emotional repercussions for the victims of sexual assault.

Our Bridgewater sexual assault lawyers understand how difficult it can be to talk about this emotionally triggering subject matter. During a free, no-obligation first meeting with our sexual assault lawyers serving Bridgewater, assault survivors can feel safe to share their story with compassionate and sensitive professionals.
