Assaults and Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is a devastating crime and our Ottawa injury lawyers are here for you.
Sexual assault transpires in many different scenarios, and we know that one incident can change your life. We understand sexual assault is an invasive act that often leaves brutal physical injuries and profound emotional pain. It’s not uncommon for people who have been sexually assaulted to develop debilitating psychological illnesses like depression and anxiety, or intense feelings of guilt, anger and sadness. As an experienced Ottawa assault lawyer , I work closely with our clients and understand that opening up about your experience is never easy.
Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand it takes courage to come forward after a sexual assault.
Many sexual assaults occur to people at a young age by persons known to them, like family members, family friends or someone in a position of authority. Children who have been sexually assaulted generally aren’t psychologically mature enough to understand their experience or it’s emotional complexity. Often, it’s kept secret or repressed, and the feelings of pain, guilt and shame are carried into their adulthood.
Adults who’ve been through a sexual assault face similar emotional challenges when describing their experience to others. When people start a lawsuit against the perpetrator, they can often become despondent or ashamed about sharing their experience, or fearful they won’t be believed, which can make the process of seeking damages difficult. As an experienced Ottawa assault lawyer, I understand the courage it takes to confront the person who committed the sexual assault and relive your traumatic experience. We are here for you and with you every step of the way.
