Port Hope Sexual Assault Lawyer

Sexual assault is one of the most severe, emotionally damaging injuries that can be inflicted upon someone. It can affect every aspect of your life for years—or even the rest of your life. One in three women and one in six men experience sexual violence in their lifetime, according to the Sexual Assault Centre (SACHA).

While the courts will attempt to hold your assailant criminally responsible for your attack, you also have the right to hold them civilly responsible. You have the right to sue in civil court for financial restitution related to your injuries if you qualify.

The team at Preszler Injury Lawyers wants to help you. Call 1-800-JUSTICE for a free initial consultation today.

Holding Your Attacker Responsible May Help Bring Closure

While no amount of money can make up for the trauma you experienced, some sexual assault survivors may feel some sense of closure and vindication after the legal process is over.

You may be able to recover compensation for any of the following:

How We May Work to Hold Your Attacker Liable

Civil Statute of Limitations Involving Sexual Assault

Sexual assault victims sometimes do not come forward for years. They fear retaliation for bringing criminal charges and civil claims against their former attackers. It is even worse for individuals who have survived sexual assault acts committed by a family member or spouse since they likely depend on and live near their attackers.

It’s for this reason that in 2016, lawmakers amended the Ontario Limitations Act to remove all statutes of limitations on lawsuits related to sexual assault and abuse cases at the civil level. The province of Ontario understands the lifelong, profound impact that silence carries with it.

Simply put, Ontario understood that the statute of limitations was not long enough to adequately protect citizens and the public-at-large.

Time Is Still of the Essence

While it is comforting to realize you may be able to pursue your attacker at any time, it does not always help your case. Physical evidence degrades, and emotional memories fade over time, which may result in your claim not carrying the same weight and impact as it did when it first happened.

Don’t let your attacker sidestep his or her responsibilities toward you. They were wrong and should not get away cleanly due to a technicality.
