Campbell River Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse is a traumatic experience that can have long-lasting emotional and financial repercussions for survivors. It is a violation of trust and power that can leave victims feeling alone, helpless, and confused.

Perpetrators of sexual abuse often use their positions of authority or trust to victimize more vulnerable targets. This being the case, perpetrators often work in or volunteer for organizations wherein they can fulfill a leadership role over young or otherwise vulnerable community members. These organizations often include:

  • Religious institutions
  • Schools
  • Camps
  • Extracurricular programmes
  • Scouts
  • Psychiatric facilities
  • Detention centres
  • Long-term care homes
  • And more

Anyone can be the victim of sexual abuse, regardless of age, gender, or background. According to local statistics, sexual abuse is a serious problem in Campbell River. Recently, over the course of just one year, West Shore RCMP investigated over one hundred reported sexual offenses, including child abuse.

The emotional and psychological repercussions of being sexually abused can be severe. Survivors may suffer from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as other mental health conditions. They may also have difficulty trusting others, building and maintaining social and romantic relationships, and rely on self-destructive coping mechanisms to try alleviating their pain.

In addition to suffering psychologically, the financial costs incurred by survivors of sexual abuse can be overwhelming. Many people suffer from a reduced earning potential, especially if their abuse has prevented them from pursuing educational opportunities or avenues for career advancement. Additionally, the costs of therapy, counseling, and other treatments that are vital for a survivor’s recovery can be extremely high.

Our Campbell River sexual abuse lawyers take pride in helping survivors in the local community to find accountability and compensation.
