Nanaimo Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse is a crime that can have long-lasting emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions for survivors. Sexual abuse is typically perpetrated by individuals in positions of trust, authority, or dependency who use their power to take advantage of children, adolescents, or other vulnerable individuals. This can take the form of many inappropriate and traumatizing forms of abuse, including sexual exploitation.

Many perpetrators of sexual abuse seek out employment or volunteer opportunities within organizations that put them in close proximity to potential targets, including schools, religious institutions, extracurricular programmes, scouts, long-term care facilities, psychiatric hospitals, juvenile detention centres, and more. In certain cases, these organizations might be aware of their employee’s improper, criminal behaviour, but fail to take appropriate steps to address them and protect others from harm. This is known as systemic or institutional sexual abuse.

Survivors of sexual abuse can experience an array of difficulties throughout their lives. These can be psychological, emotional, and economic in nature. However, by working with our Nanaimo sexual abuse lawyers, community members who have been subjected to this crime may be able to pursue justice, accountability, financial compensation.

If you were victimized by a trusted authority figure or someone upon whom you were dependent, our sexual abuse lawyers serving Nanaimo may be able to help you file a civil claim against the perpetrator and any other parties or entities who might be responsible. Organizations or employers may be considered contributorily negligent if they knew or should have known about the abuse and failed to take appropriate action.

Working with our Nanaimo sexual abuse lawyers to file a civil claim against an abuser can be a powerful way for survivors to take control of their healing process and hold their abuser accountable for their actions. Civil claims for damages can provide financial compensation for the harm caused by the abuse, as well as a sense of closure and validation for the survivor.

The types of damages that may be available to survivors of sexual abuse depend on the extent to which their lives were impacted by their traumatizing experience. Damages often pursued in sexual abuse claims include compensation for medical expenses, counseling services, psychological therapy, prescription medication, lost wages, reduced future earning capabilities, emotional harm, and more.

In British Columbia, there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse claims in accordance with the provincial Limitation Act. This means that it is never too late for a survivor to speak out against their abuser and begin the process of pursuing justice. Regardless of how much time has passed since the abuse occurred, survivors may be able to work with our Nanaimo sexual abuse lawyers to take legal action and reclaim control of their lives.
