Saint John Sexual Assault Lawyer


Despite the fact that anyone, regardless of gender, can and may be the victim of sexual assault, women are overwhelmingly overrepresented among sexual assault survivors. Across the nation, the people most likely to be assaulted sexually are young women, indigenous women, trans women, and women with disabilities.

Adults should have the power to control what happens to their own body. When someone perpetrates sexual assault, they take that power away from their victim. Through a number of non-consensual actions, perpetrators of sexual assault rob their victims of their power to control what happens to their bodies. Perpetraors of sexual assault may do this by forcing their own desires upon their victims through attempted or completed rape, forced kissing, grabbing, unwanted touching, sexual harassment, and other reprehensible, criminal actions. Often, perpetrators use physical violence, threats, or intimidation to force their victims to engage in non-consensual sexual activity

Even though many Saint John residents may imagine that most assaults are perpetrated by strangers with no pre-existing, personal relationships with their victims, in the majority of sexual assault cases, the opposite is true. Oftentimes, friends, family members, and other trusted figures in a victim’s life take advantage of their close relationships to carry out sexual assault.

Survivors of sexual assault may experience protracted emotional and psychological distress for years following their abuse. Many survivors develop serious, often disabling mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As a result of another party’s criminal actions against them, sexual assault survivors may suffer financial losses. The damages they may incur could include medical expenses, high costs of psychiatric treatment, lost wages, reduced future earning capacity, and more.

If you have been the victim of sexual assault, you are entitled to pursue legal action against your abuser.
