Port Hawkesbury Sexual Assault Lawyer


Despite a common misconception that sexual assaults are most frequently perpetrated by unknown assailants against strangers, in fact, the opposite is true. Sexual assault is most commonly perpetrated by people with pre-existing relationships with their victims. This means that the perpetrators of sexual assault can be the victim’s spouse, romantic partner, friend, family member, co-worker, colleague, or other person with whom they have a personal or professional relationship.

Just as anyone can perpetrate sexual assault, anyone can be the victim of sexual assault. However, across the globe, the overwhelming majority of sexual assault victims are women.

Survivors of sexual assault have the right to pursue both criminal and civil charges against the person who perpetrated the crime against them. As the result of a criminal conviction, a person found guilty of committing sexual assault could face incarceration. However, unless a sexual assault survivor pursues civil action against them, even if the perpetrator receives a criminal conviction, the victim will not be be awarded financial compensation for damages they have incurred as byproducts of their assault.

After enduring the trauma of being sexually assaulted, survivors often incur significant financial losses. These may be related to:

  • 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
