Burnaby Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Survivors of sexual abuse in Burnaby may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what steps to take to seek justice and compensation for their trauma. By working with our Burnaby sexual abuse lawyers, survivors may be able to pursue a civil claim against the perpetrator of this awful crime and any other contributorily negligent parties who may be responsible for the abuse.

Sexual abuse is a broad term that encompasses any form of unwanted sexual contact or behavior. This can include rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and exploitation. Perpetrators of sexual abuse often use their positions of authority or trust to victimize more vulnerable targets, such as children, elderly individuals, or those with disabilities. If a trusted authority figure or adult upon whom a child or teenager is financially dependant wields their power to coerce, manipulate, bribe, threaten or blackmail them into performing sexual acts, they have committed sexual abuse. Even teenagers who have reached the age of consent and believe their sexual encounter with a figure of authority, trust, or dependency to have been consensual cannot legally consent to sexual exploitation.

The psychological, emotional, and financial repercussions of being sexually abused can be devastating. Survivors may experience a range of physical and mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as physical injuries. They may also struggle with trust issues and have difficulty forming social and/or romantic relationships.

Additionally, the financial costs of surviving sexual abuse can be particularly taxing. Many survivors of sexual abuse struggle to afford certain expenses that are vital for their recovery, including therapy, prescription drugs, psychiatric treatment, and other forms of counseling. Survivors of sexual abuse could also lose wages, miss out on educational opportunities, or be forced to change career paths as a result of their trauma, resulting in a reduced future earning capability.

If you were the subject of sexual abuse, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim to hold the perpetrator accountable and seek justice from any institutions that may have enabled or covered up the abuse. Doing so can provide a sense of justice and closure, as well as help you recover the financial losses you have incurred as a result of the abuse to which you were subjected.

In accordance with the provincial Limitation Act, there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse claims in British Columbia. This means that survivors can pursue a civil claim at any time, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred.
