New Glasgow Sexual Assault Lawyer


Sexual assault refers to more than violent crimes like rape and attempted rape. Any sexual activity perpetrated without their partners’ consent is considered sexual assault. Examples of assault include groping, grabbing, forced kissing, non-consensual touching, and other forms of harassment.

Being assaulted can have long-lasting effects on a victim’s quality of life. Whereas perpetrators of sexual assault may be able to go about their lives as if they have done nothing wrong, their victims may carry the emotional burden of their trauma for years, and even decades to come.

As a result of being victimized by a sexual abuser, the survivors of assault can develop severe mental health issues, including pervasive feelings of anxiety, depression, shame, low self-esteem, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Often debilitating in nature, these serious mental health issues can impact a sexual assault survivor’s ability to maintain romantic and/or social relationships, complete educational opportunities and vocational training programs, and even perform the duties of their jobs. As such, because of an abuser’s criminal actions, an innocent person could be forced to deal with enduring emotional trauma and incur financial losses, as well.

To try grappling with their traumatic experience, sexual assault survivors may develop self-destructive coping mechanisms. Those who have the courage to seek professional help in the form of psychological counselling and/or psychiatric treatment, and who have the financial wherewithal to do so are often required to pay out-of-pocket for these necessary services. Counselling is frequently an ongoing– and expensive– process. It can take years to fully address traumatic experiences, and by seeking out these important, life-saving services, survivors of sexual assault often spend a significant amount of money.

If you were the victim of sexual assault, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Damages in sexual assault claims could be economic and non-economic in nature, and might 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
