Sackville Sexual Assault Lawyer


Survivors of sexual assault often carry the emotional and psychological burden of their traumatic experiences for years, and even decades. While the people who victimized them may be able to go the rest of their lives without giving their crime a second thought, sexual assault survivors may suffer a diminished quality of life as a result of being assaulted.

In order to try overcoming their trauma and reckoning with the crime that was committed against them, sexual assault survivors may require the assistance of various professionals. However, the process of undergoing psychiatric treatment or psychological counselling can take years. Without sufficient insurance coverage, assault victims grappling with the mental health issues they developed in response to their assault may struggle to afford these necessary, potentially life-saving services.

As a matter of fact, the survivors of sexual assault frequently incur a host of financial losses because of the crime perpetrated against them. After being robbed of their control over what happens to their bodies by a sexual abuser, assault survivors are often required to go to great expense to reckon with their trauma, and could lose significant amounts of money in direct relation to the abuse they endured. Sexual assault survivors often incur monetary losses related to:

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

If a person engages in any kind of sexual activity without their partners’ consent, they have committed sexual assault. Consent is an active, evolving, clearly understood agreement between adults that can be revoked at any time throughout the sexual encounter by any partner.

The overwhelming majority of sexual assault victims are women, however anyone can– and may– be the victim of sexual assault, regardless of their gender. Sexual assault could refer to violent crimes such as completed or attempted rape, as well as other forms of harrassment, including forced kissing, groping, or unwanted touching.
