Sexual Assault Damages

The Sexual Assault Centre reports that one in three women and one in six men will experience some form of sexual violence in their lives. Sexual assault is one of the most, if not the most, heinous crimes one person can commit and another person can endure. As a victim, you may be eligible for compensation for every type of damage you suffered as a result of the attack, whether those damages can be seen or felt by another person or not.

What Constitutes Sexual Assault in Ontario

Despite what many people believe, the term “sexual assault” does not just refer to acts of physical violence, such as rape and molestation. It is actually much broader than that, covering a long list of sexual misdeeds, many of them not physical in any way.

If you believe you have been a victim of inappropriate sexual behaviour, you should speak with a lawyer about your options, even if you were not physically attacked. A sexual assault lawyer serving Courtice from Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you go after the liable party or parties.

Here are some common examples of sexual assault. As you can see, many of them do not involve physical contact or physical coercion:

  • Threats
  • Intimidation
  • Using one’s power to receive sexual favours
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Repeated lewd jokes or comments
  • Groping or inappropriate touching

Never assume that the inappropriate sexual behaviour to which you were subjected to fails to meet the threshold for sexual assault without first speaking with a lawyer. If someone behaved toward you in an unwanted sexual manner, we might be able to help you hold them accountable and receive the compensation you deserve.

Filing Criminal vs. Civil Charges

Call 1-888-608-2111 for available options or Book a Consultation

As a sexual assault victim, you can take action against the person who victimized you in a few ways. You can file criminal charges, helping put them in jail and out of reach of others to which they might do harm. You can also file a civil lawsuit against them and seek financial compensation.

Criminal Charges

Sexual assault is punishable by years or even decades in prison, plus fines and a black mark that never leaves the perpetrator’s record. By filing criminal charges, you can bring the person who hurt you to justice, forcing them to pay in a big way for what they have done. You can also see to it that they are removed from society, potentially for a long time, and put in a place where they can no longer victimize you or anyone else.

Civil Charges

You can receive financial compensation from your assailant by filing a civil lawsuit against them and winning a judgment in court. We have a long and successful track record of taking action against assailants and forcing them to pay our clients the compensation they deserve. We may be able to gather evidence and make it abundantly clear that the other party’s wrongful actions resulted in physical, emotional, and psychological damages suffered by you.

Compensation You May Be Able to Recover

A sexual assault lawyer serving Courtice from Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you recover a settlement or judgment that includes the following compensation and more:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

The Statute of Limitations

Ontario no longer has a statute of limitations for sexual assault civil cases, as the National Post reports. You can file a lawsuit many years after the fact, but when you do, the evidence can expire and become unusable. As a general rule, the sooner you take action, the better your chances of recovering the full and fair compensation you deserve, but at the same time, if your attack happened a long time ago, it is never too late. A lawyer from Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to evaluate your case and let you know what to expect.
