Sexual Abuse Lawyer London

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we have profound respect for the sensitive nature of sexual abuse cases, and the courage it takes to come forward. Sexual abuse is a criminal offence, and perpetrators found guilty in criminal court could face prison time. 

A survivor of sexual abuse may be able to seek financial compensation by pursuing a civil lawsuit. Our sexual abuse lawyers serving London may be able to help survivors of sexual abuse recover the many costs they have incurred as a direct result of an abuser’s actions. These damages might include medical expenses, psychological treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

If you are a survivor of sexual abuse, you may be eligible for compensation, even if decades have passed since the abuse took place. Contact our London sexual abuse lawyers today to book a free initial consultation and discuss what may be posible in your case.

What Is Sexual Abuse?

Among adults, any sexual act to which all involved parties do not consent may be considered sexual assault. Minors under the age of consent cannot legally consent to engaging in sexual activities with anyone. Even teenagers who have passed the age of consent but have still not reached the age of majority cannot consent to sexual conduct with an adult in a position of trust or authority or upon whom they are financially dependent. 

At the core of sexually abusive relationships is an imbalance of power between the parties involved. Adults in positions of authority can exploit the trust placed in them by younger or vulnerable people in order to coerce, manipulate, or threaten them into participating in sexual activities. 

Sexual abuse often takes place over the course of a span of time, and perpetrators often use “grooming” behaviours in order to manipulate the target into accepting increasing degrees of sexual violation, all the while shrouding the relationship in shame and silence. This crime may involve physical touch, and it may involve non-contact abuse, or a combination of both. Sexually abusive actions may include:

  • Verbal harassment
  • Exposure
  • Voyeurism and stalking
  • Threats
  • Unwanted touching
  • Sexual intercourse
  • And more.

It is estimated that about 1 in 10 Canadians have been targeted by abusers as children, though it is challenging to establish a definite statistic. Because of social stigmas, survivors’ vulnerable positions at the time of the abuse, as well as abusers’ calculated isolation and silencing of their targets, the vast majority of sexual abuse cases go unreported.

Financial Support Available for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

It can be profoundly difficult for survivors to come forward about the abuse. Indeed, it may take years for an individual to acknowledge even to themselves the severity of their trauma. That is why there is no statute of limitations on cases of sexual abuse in Ontario. This means that a survivor may be able to file a lawsuit against their abuser at any point in time.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that survivors of sexual abuse deserve to understand their legal rights, to be able to make informed decisions in pursuit of justice. To discuss the specifics of your case, contact us today and schedule a free initial consultation with our London sexual abuse lawyers.
