Surrey Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Sexual abuse is a traumatic and life-altering experience that can have long-lasting emotional, psychological, and financial repercussions. It is a crime that affects individuals of all genders, ages, and backgrounds. However, in British Columbia, Indigenous women and girls are uniquely vulnerable to sexual abuse, including human trafficking.

Sexual abuse can occur in various settings, including homes, schools, workplaces, and religious institutions. Survivors of sexual abuse in Surrey may feel alone, confused, and unsure of how to move forward.

Survivors of sexual abuse often experience a range of emotional and psychological symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The symptoms of these and other mental health disorders can manifest through various harmful coping mechanisms, including alcoholism, substance abuse, and self-harm.

Because of the actions of a criminal abuser, someone who has been sexually assaulted may struggle with emotional and psychological issues for decades, and even for the rest of their lives. They may develop trust issues, have difficulty forming healthy social and romantic relationships, and feel guilty or ashamed of what has happened to them.

Furthermore, the financial repercussions of sexual abuse can also be significant. Survivors may require extensive psychological counseling, ongoing psychiatric treatment, and other forms of expensive therapy that may not be covered by their insurance plan. Additionally, because of mental health issues developed as a result of the abuse they sustained, survivors may need to miss work and lose wages, miss out on career advancement opportunities and suffer from a reduced future earnings capability, or cut their education short and fail to fulfill their earning potential.

It is important for survivors of sexual abuse in Surrey to know that there are resources available to them to help them retake control of their lives. One option that might be available to survivors in the region is to work with our Surrey sexual abuse lawyers to file a civil claim for damages and pursue financial compensation.

Working with our Surrey sexual abuse lawyers to file a civil claim for damages can seem like a difficult process. However, it can also be an important step in a survivor’s journey. The process of pursuing a civil claim may help a survivor recover compensation for their financial losses, but it can also provide them with a sense of accountability, closure and validation.

Sexual abuse can occur at the hands of individuals in positions of trust, authority, or dependency, such as teachers, doctors, and caretakers. These individuals may use their positions of power to exploit vulnerable individuals, and their actions can have devastating consequences. Additionally, organizations or employers can be considered contributorily negligent if they fail to take appropriate measures to protect their employees or clients from sexual abuse. Depending on the circumstances of your case, our sexual abuse lawyers serving Surrey may be able to pursue compensation from any and all parties or entities responsible for the harm you endured.

In British Columbia, there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse claims. This means that it is never too late for a survivor to speak out against their abuser and seek justice.
