New Waterford Sexual Assault Lawyer


There is no statute of limitations on sexual assault claims in this province. Therefore, if you were the victim of sexual assault, regardless of how far in the past your assault took place, you may be eligible to pursue legal action against your abuser.

Any con-consensual sexual activity is sexual assault. Consent refers to a clearly understood, active, and revocable agreement between two adults. Even if consent has been granted by the participants in a sexual encounter, any partner has the right to stop the activity if they no longer wish to proceed. If a partner continues the sexual activity after consent has been revoked, they have committed sexual assault. In addition to violent crimes like rape and attempted rape, sexual assault could refer to any kind of unwanted sexual activity, including groping, grabbing, forced kissing, and other types 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.

The survivors of sexual assault may develop serious mental health issues as a result of the trauma they have endured. In addition to the emotional and psychological challenges they may endure, 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. By working with our sexual assault lawyersserving New Waterford 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
