Sexual Assault Damages

As a sexual assault victim, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your damages—even if you do not have any physical wounds. What separates sexual assault from so many other personal injury cases is that, in many cases, the longest-lasting and most severe damage is not physical but mental or psychological. These scars often persist long after any physical wounds have healed.

No matter the circumstances of your sexual assault, we want to help you recover the full damages you deserve, and it starts with sitting down with you for a free initial case evaluation, learning about your situation, and then laying the groundwork for a compelling civil claim, one in which we spare nothing in going after the perpetrator for their behavior.

What Constitutes Sexual Assault in Ontario

Another misconception held by many people when they hear the term sexual assault is that they think it always refers to physical attacks involving bodily harm. In reality, assault does not have to be physical. For example, here are some acts that constitute sexual assault and do not involve physical violence—and keep in mind this list is nowhere near exhaustive:

  • Threats
  • Intimidation
  • Using a position of power to secure sexual favors
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Unwanted sexual comments or jokes
  • Groping or inappropriate touching

The bottom line is that if someone behaved in a sexual nature toward you, and you believe their behavior was inappropriate, you should take action by speaking with a sexual assault lawyer serving Trenton. There is a very good chance that the other party’s behavior falls under the definition of sexual assault.

Filing Criminal vs. Civil Charges

Sexual assault victims have a couple of options for taking action against the perpetrator. They may pursue criminal charges as well as a civil lawsuit. Both forms of legal actions offer distinct benefits.

Criminal Charges

When you file criminal charges against a sexual assault perpetrator, the police will investigate your claim. If they feel enough evidence exists, they will arrest the other party and formally charge them with sexual assault or a related crime. The accused will then stand trial, and if convicted, they will likely face a lengthy jail sentence, a fine, or both.

Pressing criminal charges lets you seek justice by putting your attacker behind bars, and it can give you the satisfaction of knowing they are safely locked away where they cannot terrorize other innocent victims.

However, one thing you will not receive by filing criminal charges alone is financial compensation.

Civil Charges

In order to recover monetary damages from the person who assaulted you, you must file a civil lawsuit against them. Preszler Injury Lawyers can file on your behalf and then gather the evidence we need to put forward a thorough and compelling case. If a civil judge and jury find the perpetrator liable for your damages, they will award you a judgment, which the perpetrator will then be required to pay.

You should always file a civil lawsuit for sexual assault, even if you are also pursuing criminal charges against the perpetrator. You have suffered extensively, and for that, the responsible party should pay, not only by losing their freedom but also by compensating you financially.

Your Trenton Sexual Assault Compensation

As a sexual assault victim, you may be eligible for compensation to cover the following damages and more:

  • Medical bills (this includes care for your physical wounds as well as counseling and therapy for emotional or psychological distress)
  • Lost earnings from work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

The Statute of Limitations

Ontario no longer has a statute of limitations on filing a civil lawsuit for sexual assault. However, the sooner you take action, the sooner you can receive the justice and compensation you deserve. Also, you have a better chance of a successful outcome if you file sooner rather than later, as there is a risk that some of the evidence in your case may get stale or lose its effectiveness.
