Shelburne Sexual Assault Lawyer


When a person is sexually assaulted, the resulting emotional trauma can be debilitating. Being robbed of one’s bodily autonomy in a violent, dehumanizing act of sexual aggression can cause survivors of sexual assault to develop long-lasting psychological issues that could disrupt the course of a victim’s entire life.

As a direct result of the crime perpetrated against them, people who were sexually assaulted are often required to go to great expense to try overcoming their resulting emotional and psychological trauma. The overwhelming mental health issues that arise after being violated sexually by another person can be so severe that victims are forced to abandon educational opportunities, vocational training, or employment opportunities, all of which can lead to a loss of future income and reduced future earning capacity. Sexual assault victims might be unable to comfortably afford the high costs of much-needed counselling services and other necessary costs related to their mental health.

If you were the victim of sexual assault, you might be entitled to compensation. By working with our sexual assault lawyers serving Shelburne, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against your abuser or the organization that employed them or introduced you to them, depending on the circumstances of your case. By pursuing civil action against the criminal you assaulted you, our Shelburne sexual assault lawyers may be able to help you recover damages you have accumulated as a result of being victimized. Depending on the impact your traumatic incident has had on your overall quality of life, our sexual assault lawyers serving Shelburne may be able to help you recover financial compensation for a number of economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Psychological counselling
  • Prescription medication
  • Mileage for medical appointments
