Marysville Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Our team at Preszler Injury Lawyers understand the sensitive nature of sexual abuse cases and respect the tremendous courage it can take to step forward. We are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized service to each of our clients, and to helping survivors of sexual abuse receive the recompense they are owed.

Sexual abuse is a crime. If the Crown pursues criminal charges against a perpetrator of sexual abuse, they could face impriosnment if found guilty. Additionally, survivors of sexual abuse may be entitled to pursue a civil lawsuit against their abuser to recover damages they have incurred as a result of the perpetrator’s wrongdoings.

Each case is unique, and there may be many nuances involved in seeking justice. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse and would like to discuss your legal options, contact us today and see how our Marysville sexual abuse lawyers may be able to help you.

Defining Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse involves an adult in a position of power over a minor or vulnerable person who leverages their influence to manipulate, threaten, coerce, or otherwise convince their target to engage in non-consensual sexual activity with them. 

Similar to the legal definition of sexual assault, sexual abuse can involve physical contact and it can involve other forms of harassment. Examples include:

  • Sexual touching
  • Intercourse
  • Verbal harassment
  • Threats
  • Stalking
  • Exposure
  • Voyeurism
  • Exploitation (eg. child pornography)
  • And more

This despicable crime is, unfortunately, not uncommon. Around 10% of Canadians have reported having been the targets of childhood sexual abuse, though this number is likely to be low. This is because the vast majority of sexual abuse cases go unreported. 

The power imbalance between perpetrators and their targets means that victims of abuse are often dependent in some way on their abuser. This dynamic frequently renders the survivor isolated and shamed into silence. 

Help for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Our Marysville sexual abuse lawyers understand that layers of social stigma and the complexities of a survivor’s interpersonal relationships (among a number of other factors) may have contributed to an individual not disclosing the facts of the abuse at the time that it happened, or perhaps for many years after. However, there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse cases in Ontario. That means that a survivor may be able to file a civil lawsuit against their abuser at any point in time, even decades after the crime was committed.

By pursuing a civil lawsuit, survivors of sexual abuse might be able to recover compensation for damages they have incurred as a result of their trauma. These damages could be related to medical bills, psychological treatment, rehabilitative services, lost wages, reduced earning potential, pain and suffering, and more.

Contact Our Marysville Sexual Abuse Lawyers Today
