These wounds are ever-present and all-encompassing, clinging to you every hour of every day, reminding you of the heinous act to which you were subjected. For this, you deserve not only justice but substantial compensation.

Sexual Assault Is More Than You Might Think

Even if your attacker never attacked you physically or even laid a hand on you, there is a chance their behavior still qualifies as sexual assault. In fact, the word “assault” does not always refer to physical contact, even though many sexual assaults have a physical component.

Here are just a few behaviors that do not involve physical violence but still fall under the umbrella of sexual assault:

  • Threats
  • Intimidation tactics
  • Abuse of power to obtain sexual favors
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Repeated lewd comments
  • Groping
  • Other inappropriate touching

You should speak with a sexual assault lawyer serving Kingston about any sexual behavior to which you have been subjected that you feel was inappropriate, even if others have told you (likely wrongly) that it was not sexual assault.

Your Options for Taking Action Against a Sexual Assault Perpetrator

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

As a sexual assault victim, you can go after the perpetrator who attacked you in a couple of ways. You can file criminal charges against them and put them in jail. You can also file a civil lawsuit for compensation.

Criminal Charges

Securing a criminal conviction against your attacker can bring with it a sense of justice as well as one of relief, as the perpetrator will likely spend the next several years behind bars where they cannot victimize you or anyone else.

That said, to recover compensation for your damages, you must do more than press criminal charges against the responsible party. You must file a civil claim or lawsuit.

Civil Charges

In a civil lawsuit, the goal is to convince a judge and jury in civil court that the other party’s actions directly caused or contributed to the damages that you have incurred— either physical, emotional, or both. To make this case, we must first show that the other party indeed committed sexual assault.

We also have to demonstrate that you have suffered physical, emotional, or psychological damages—our team will gather and present extensive evidence that you have. Lastly, we must tie the two together, convincingly showing that the other party’s actions caused your damages.

Your Compensation for Sexual Assault Damages

Preszler Injury Lawyers helps sexual assault victims collect fair compensation for the damages they have incurred. We can help you recover a settlement or award that includes money for the following and more:

  • Medical bills (both current and anticipated future costs)
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more if you qualify

The Statute of Limitations

While Ontario used to have a two-year statute of limitations on filing civil lawsuits for sexual assault, this time limit no longer exists according to the National Post. The province has come to understand that many victims take longer than that to realize the extent of their damages and the need to take action. Though it is likely a relief not to be bound to a strict filing deadline, as a victim you should understand that it still benefits you to take action sooner rather than later, as evidence can fade over time.
