Edmundston Sexual Assault Lawyer


Survivors of sexual assault often feel the emotional and psychological impact of their assault for years, or even decades. When this reprehensible crime is committed against another person, the perpetrator robs their victim of their control over what happens to their body. This violation can have long-lasting repercussions, and often has adverse effects on a sexual assault survivor’s overall quality of life.

Also referred to as sexual battery, sexual assault can encompass multiple examples of non-consensual actions, behaviours, and indecent overtures. Perpetrators can– and often do– use violence, threats, or other intimidation tactics to force themselves upon victims without consent. Rape and rape attempts are examples of sexual assault, as are forced kissing, unwanted touching, grabbing, groping, and other forms of harassment. Any kind of sexual act performed without their partner’s consent is sexual assault. While the perpetrators of these crimes may give little thought to the consequences of their actions, their victims may develop severe, debilitating mental health issues and experience financial distress as a direct result of their assault.

The financial losses sustained by survivors of sexual assault are often related to psychological counselling and psychiatric treatment required to try overcoming the emotional distress arising from the crime committed against them. If the insurmountable mental health issues they have developed because of their assault make it impossible for victims to continue working, they may sustain financial losses in the form of lost wages. Plus, if victims cannot continue growing at work, pursuing educational opportunities, or completing vocational training, they may experience a reduced earning capability, resulting in even more lost money as a direct result of their assault. Other examples of damages commonly sustained by sexual assault survivors include:

  • 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
