Kirkland Sexual Abuse Lawyer

1 in 10 Canadians have reported surviving chidhood sexual abuse. This means that an adult in their lives leveraged a position of trust and authority in order to exploit them sexually when they were below the age of consent. These trusted adult figures are often in positions of power or authority, or they are people upon whom children are dependent in some capacity. Foster parents, high school teachers, religious leaders, camp counselors, and sports coaches are among the most common perpetrators of sexual abuse towards children. The most common victims of sexual abuse are children, but vulnerable adults can also be targeted. 

Sexual abuse differs from sexual assault in that it is frequently a crime committed in an ongoing pattern over the course of time, within the context of a relationship that rests on a power imbalance. Sexual abuse is a crime according to the Canadian Criminal Code. Perpetrators who are found guilty in criminal court could face incarceration in prison. 

Survivors of sexual abuse might also be entitled to file a civil lawsuit against their abuser to recover damages they have incurred as a result of their abuser’s criminal actions. To learn more, including what compensation may be available to you, call us at 1-800-JUSTICE or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation with our Kirkland Lake sexual abuse lawyers today.

Financial Compensation for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

By filing a civil lawsuit, our Kirland Lake sexual abuse lawyers may be able to help survivors receive the compensation they are rightfully owed. For example, if a person had to drop out of high school because of the trauma of their abuse and was, therefore, unable to pursue higher education, they may be able to receive financial support to compensate them for the income they lost by being unable to meet their intended career goals. Similarly, the costs of medical bills, psychological treatment, rehabilitative care, and other damages might be pursued by filing a civil lawsuit. 

While no amount of money can take away the impacts of the trauma itself, financial support can profoundly improve the quality of life for a survivor and their family. Each case is unique, and the legal possibilities may vary. To discuss the specifics of your case, contact our Kirkland Lake sexual abuse lawyers and see what we may be able to do for you.
