1. Physical vs. Emotional Injuries
Sexual assault, despite what many people believe, often does not involve physical violence. Even though you may not have visible, tangible injuries from the crime of which you were a victim, you likely suffered emotional harm, the damage that could take much longer to heal than a physical wound. We believe that all injuries resulting from sexual assaults, whether physical or not, deserve compensation. We will pursue the compensation for which you are eligible under Ontario law.
After a sexual assault, you may require medical treatment for your physical injuries as well as counseling, therapy, or psychological care for your emotional or psychological trauma. We can help you collect compensation to cover the cost of professional care you may have received, and we also pursue noneconomic damages, meaning those that cannot be quantified in specific dollar terms, such as pain and suffering.
We are eager to get started on your case right away. Call the sexual assault lawyers serving Pickering at Preszler Injury Lawyers today at 1-800-JUSTICE.

2. Filing a Civil vs. Criminal Case for Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is a serious crime in Ontario, one that carries the potential for a lengthy jail sentence, a heavy fine, and a criminal record one cannot remove. As a victim, you have the option of pressing criminal charges against your assailant. You can help put them behind bars where they cannot victimize others. One thing you cannot receive from a criminal conviction, however, is financial compensation. To recover damages for your injuries, you will need to file a civil claim against the perpetrator.
Preszler Injury Lawyers can help you file a civil claim and recover a financial settlement or judgment. In civil court, your lawyer will present evidence making it clear that the perpetrator committed a crime against you, and your lawyer will tie that crime to the physical, emotional, and psychological damages you have incurred. Using valuation methods, we will assign a dollar amount to your case and pursue the full value.
