Coquitlam Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse is a serious crime that can have a devastating impact on the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial well-being of victims. Sexual abuse can take many forms and can be perpetrated by a wide range of individuals, including those in positions of trust, authority, or dependency.

One of the most heinous examples of this crime is sexual exploitation. This occurs when someone in a position of trust or authority, or someone else’s dependency upon them uses their power to manipulate, coerce, bully, threaten, or otherwise force a younger or more vulnerable person into participating in sexual activities. Examples of this can include a teacher or coach grooming and sexually exploiting a student, a religious figure taking advantage of a congregant, a psychiatric hospital staff member taking advantage of patients, and more.

Anyone can be the target of sexual abuse. Regardless of age, gender, background, and other distinguishing factors, people can be victimized by criminal abusers who know how to use their positions of power to get what they want without considering the long-term effects of their actions. However, in British Columbia and throughout the entire continent, several indicators illustrate that Indigenous women and girls are uniquely vulnerable to sexual violence and human trafficking because of many systemic issues.

Sexual abuse can also have financial repercussions for victims. They may be unable to find stable work or earn a living as a result of their trauma and its subsequent effects. Survivors of sexual abuse can also incur significant costs related to psychological counseling and other treatments as they try to recover from their traumatizing experience.

No amount of money will be able to erase the past or undue the effects of an abuser’s criminal actions. However, by working with our Coquitlam sexual abuse lawyers, survivors of these traumatic experiences may be able to pursue the accountability and compensation they deserve.

By working with our sexual abuse lawyers serving Coquitlam, survivors in the local communty may be able to pursue a civil claim for damages against the person who perpetrated the crime, and any other parties or entities who might be considered responsible. For example, if the organization that employed the abuser was aware of allegations about sexual abuse but took no actions to investigate or prevent the criminal actions from happening again, they might be considered contributorily negligent. This form of misconduct is known as systemic or institutional sexual abuse.

Our Coquitlam sexual abuse lawyers are passionate about helping survivors in the local community to secure compensation for the damages they have incurred or will incur in the future as a result of the emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions of the abuse to which they were subjected. To learn about options for legal action that might be available to you, contact us today and receive a free initial consultation.
