Yarmouth Sexual Assault Lawyer

When the perpetrators of sexual assault violate their victims’ boundaries, they rob another person of their control over what happens to their body. Being sexually assaulted can have long-lasting emotional and psychological repercussions. People who were victimized may, indeed, carry the burden of their trauma with them for the rest of their lives.

Women account for the majority of sexual assault victims. That said, anyone can and may be the victim of sexual assault. Sexual assault refers to any kind of non-consensual sexual activity. When someone engages in any form of sexual activity with another person without their consent, they have committed sexual assault.

The survivors of sexual assault may develop serious mental health issues as a result of the trauma they have endured. In addition to the emotional and psychological challenges they may endure, sexual assault survivors often incur financial losses as a result of the crime perpetrated against them. These financial losses can be substantial, as sexual assault survivors often require ongoing, long-term psychological counselling, psychiatric treatment, or other forms of guidance over lengthy periods of time.

If you are an assault survivor, you may be entitled to financial compensation. By working with our sexual assault lawyersserving Yarmouth you may be able to file a civil claim against your abuser to recover damages you have incurred because of their criminal actions. These damages may include:

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

Despite a common belief that most cases of sexual assault involve unknown attackers abusing strangers, in fact, most victims of sexual assault have personal, pre-existing relationships with the people who have assaulted them. Because the perpetrators of sexual assault often assault their friends, partners, co-workers, or other people with whom they have a personal connection, their victims may be hesitant to speak out about the crime committed against them.

If you were the victim of sexual assault, it can be difficult to come forward and unearth trauma from your past. However, in this province, there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault claims. Even if your assault occurred many years in the past, you may still be able to pursue a claim against the person who assaulted you.
