Shediac Sexual Assault Lawyer


The perpetrators of sexual assault rob their victims of the control they are supposed to have over what happens to their bodies. By engaging in any kind of sexual activity without their partners’ consent, the perpetrators of sexual assault violate someone else’s autonomy over their body. Doing so can be extremely harmful for the victim, both physically and emotionally.

The overwhelming majority of people subjected to sexual assault are women. That said, anyone can be the victim of sexual assault. Most commonly, sexual assault is perpetrated by someone with whom the victim is personally acquainted, like a friend, family member, colleague, or co-worker. However, strangers can sexually assault people they have never encountered before, or with whom they have no pre-existing relationship.

Sexual assault can be used as an umbrella term for any kind of unwanted sexual action. If a person engages in any kind of sexual activity without their partner’s consent, they have committed sexual assault. This means that, in addition to violent crimes like rape and attempted rape, sexual assault can refer to unwanted touching, forced kissing, groping, and other forms of harassment.

As a result of living through a traumatizing, often violent event, victims of sexual assault may experience the emotional and psychological fallout for years or even decades to come. Sexual assault survivors often develop serious issues related to their mental health, and may require extensive counselling and treatment to try overcoming the trauma they endured.

The necessary measures required by sexual assault survivors to properly address their mental health concerns are often costly. The process of psychological counselling can take years, and without adequate insurance coverage, can be unaffordable for people who truly need it.

Survivors of sexual assault often incur a host of financial losses as a result of being victimized by the perpetrator of a reprehensible crime. These financial losses are often 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
