Kelowna Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse is a devastating crime that can have long-lasting emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions for survivors. In Kelowna, sexual abuse is a serious issue that affects individuals of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Unfortunately, many victims of sexual abuse face undue scrutiny from friends, colleagues, and even from law enforcement. Indeed, in just one recent year, Kelowna RCMP dismissed nearly 40 percent of report cases of sexual violence.

Sexual abuse can take many forms, including sexual exploitation. This is when individuals in positions of trust, authority, or dependency use their positions of power to sexually exploit children or vulnerable people by manipulating or threatening them into engaging in unwanted sexual activities. Abusing their positions of authority, trust, or dependency can leave perpetrators’ victims with deep emotional scars and a host of other, impactful issues.

Oftentimes, sexual abusers are able to continue getting away with predatory behaviour because of the inaction of other parties or entities. Organizations or employers might be considered contributorily negligent if they fail to take action against known sexual abuse within their institution, or if they do not have policies in place to protect the people in their care from sexual abuse. Failing to properly investigate complaints, failing to provide a safe environment, and failing to take appropriate disciplinary action against an abuser are examples of systemic or institutional sexual abuse.

By working with a Kelowna sexual abuse lawyer, survivors of this crime may be able to seek justice and compensation for their suffering from their abuser as well as any other contributorily negligent party. They may be able to do so by pursuing a civil claim.

A civil claim is a legal action that can be brought against an abuser in order to seek damages for the harm caused by the abuse. Damages can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, reduced future earning capabilities, emotional and psychological harm, and possibly more.

The process of working our sexual abuse lawyers serving Kelowna typically begins with a free initial consultation.
