Shediac Sexual Abuse Lawyer

If you were the victim of sexual abuse, no matter how far in the past your abuse took place, you may be eligible to pursue legal action. That is because, in this province, there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse claims. By pursuing a civil claim, you may be able to recover damages from your abuser and, depending on the circumstances of your case, from the organization that employed them or that introduced you to them.

Sexual abuse frequently occurs within the framework of a larger organization or institution. Perpetrators of this reprehensible crime often use their positions of authority within these organizational structures to prey upon the very people they have been hired to serve. As a result, the victims of sexual abuse are often children, teenagers, or members of vulnerable populations.

Sexual abuse is often committed by people who work or volunteer for a number of different organizations, including:

  • Schools
  • Religious institutions
  • Sports leagues
  • Extra-curricular programs
  • Summer camps
  • Detention centres
  • Psychiatric facilities
  • Foster care
  • And more

If an employee, authority figure, or volunteer at these types of institutions takes advantage of their positions of power, exploits the trust the people in their care have placed in them, or uses their victim’s dependence upon them to manipulate, coerce, or threaten them into engaging in non-consensual sexual activity, they have committed sexual abuse. If the leadership of these institutions learns about abuse taking place within their organization, they have a responsibility to report the crime to the authorities and remove the abuser from their position.

Unfortunately, in many instances, an organization’s leadership may prioritize saving their institution’s reputation or protecting their representative’s good name over protecting the young or vulnerable people in their care. By sweeping sexual abuse under the rug, an organization’s leadership, essentially, gives abusers permission to continue harming more and more generations of victims in a consequence-free setting. This form of contributory negligence is referred to as systemic, or institutional sexual abuse.

People who have been sexually abused often carry the burden of their trauma for years, or even decades. Overcoming the resulting emotional and psychological effects of suffering abuse can be a long, challenging, and expensive process.
