What Is Sexual Abuse?

Sexual abuse occurs when a person in a position of power uses their authority or the trust placed in them to coerce children or vulnerable adults into engaging in non-consensual sexual activities. Approximately 10% of Canadian have reported being the victims of childhood sexual abuse. The true statistics are difficult to specify, though, because so many cases go unreported. This could be due to social stigmas, shame, the perpetrators’ deliberate silencing of the individuals they target, and a host of other reasons.

As in cases of sexual assault, there may be physical and non-physical behaviours within the context of a sexually abusive relationship. Sexual abuse may involve the following acts, to which the target has not consented:

  • Intercourse
  • Sexual touch
  • Verbal harassment
  • Threats
  • Stalking
  • Voyeurism
  • Sexual exposure
  • And more

Sexual abuse hinges on an imbalance of power between the perpetrator and their victims. For that reason, targets are often children who are vulnerable to the exploitation of insidious teachers, sports coaches, camp counselors, religious figures, foster parents, and other adults in positions of trust and authority.

Within the context of a spousal relationship, abuse may come from one spouse who wields financial control over the other. The imbalance of power creates circumstances in which the target of the abuse may not have the resources to seek help or exit the abusive relationship.

Compensation for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Even if many years have passed since the abuse took place, survivors may be entitled to compensation through a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator. This compensation may cover damages incurred as a result of the abuse, including:

  • The costs of medical bills
  • Psychological counseling
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Income lost due to the trauma
  • Reduction in future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
  • And more

Each case is unique. To learn what might be possible in your circumstances, contact our Lindsay sexual abuse lawyers today and schedule a free, no-obligation, initial consultation.
