Markham Sexual Abuse


Sexual abuse is a criminal offence. If found guilty in criminal court, perpetrators could be imprisoned for a substantial period of time. Survivors of their heinous actions often face life-long trauma and incur exorbitant damages in the form of monetary losses and emotional suffering. 

Studies have shown that survivors of childhood sexual abuse have higher likelihoods of experiencing mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and various forms of self harm. As such, victims may incur monetary losses in the form of medical bills, payment for psychological counseling, rehabilitative services, and more. Individuals who have been subjected to sexual abuse may face a reduction in future earning potential as a result of their trauma. This can, in turn, impact the survivor’s stress levels, further exacerbating feelings of isolation, shame, and the acuteness of mental health conditions.

There may be legal compenation available to survivors of sexual abuse to replace the damages they have incurred or will incur in the future. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe survivors of sexual abuse deserve to understand their legal rights.

What Is Sexual Abuse?

When an adult in a position of trust and authority, manipulates that position to force a child or vulnerable adult into unwanted sexual conduct, they have committed sexual abuse. Victims are frequently children or minors, dependent on the care of the person who causes them profound damage. Approximately 10% of Canadians have reported having survived childhood sexual abuse.

Adults can also be targets of this crime. Sexual abuse has been frequently reported in nursing homes, within religious organizations, within spousal relationships, and more. At the core of a sexually abusive relationships – which otherwise holds similar traits to the crime of sexual assault – is an imbalance of power. 

Because a perpetrator in a sexually abusive relationship is typically a person on whom the survivor is dependent in some way, it can be profoundly difficult for a survivor to disclose the abuse to authorities. Survivors in this context are frequently isolated and shamed into silence.
