Glace Bay Sexual Assault Lawyer


It can be difficult to talk about assault. In Glace Bay, many survivors of sexual assault suffer through the lifelong ramifications of their trauma in silence. Pursuing a civil claim against the person who committed assault can feel like an emotionally taxing, expensive, and ultimately futile process. However, with the proper assistance, survivors of sexual assault can find accountability and restitution, regardless of how far in the past their assault occurred.

That is because there is no provincial statute of limitations on sexual assault claims. Even if your assault took place years in the past, our sexual assault lawyers serving Glace Bay may be able to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.

Our Glace Bay sexual assault lawyers appreciate that no amount of money will be able to change the past or undo the emotional damage that has been done to you. But our team of sexual assault lawyers serving Glace Bay are passionate about bringing perpetrators of assault to justice, and helping victims pursue the compensation they a rightfully owed.

In the context of civil claims, sexual assault is also referred to as sexual battery. These umbrella terms encompass a range of actions committed without the consent of the other participating parties. Whenever someone engages in non-consensual sexual activity with another person, they have committed sexual assault. Therefore, sexual assault can include a host of reprehensible actions, including rape, attempted rape, forced kissing, grabbing, unwanted touching, and other forms of sexual harrassment.

Survivors of sexual assault often sustain psychological injuries as a result of the trauma they have endured. In many situations, the mental and emotional repercussions of being assaulted are long-lasting, difficult to overcome, and profoundly impactful. In order to fully recover from their trauma, sexual assault survivors often incur damages related to psychological counselling, psychiatric treatment, or other forms of counselling. Additionally, if the mental health issues arising from the assault committed against them make it impossible for victims to continue working or pursue educational opportunities, they may sustain financial losses related to lost wages or reduced future earning capabilities.

If you were the victim of sexual assault, by working with our Glace Bay sexual assault lawyers, you may be able to pursue a claim for damages you have incurred as a result of your assault. These damages may include:

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