Abbotsford Sexual Assault Lawyers


Consent is a crucial aspect of healthy and respectful relationships. It refers to the voluntary and enthusiastic agreement to engage in a particular activity or interaction. This includes sexual activity. Without consent, any form of sexual activity is considered sexual assault.

There are several different types of sexual assault, including rape, attempted rape, sexual coercion, and non-consensual sexual touching or fondling. It is important to remember that consent must be clear and enthusiastic, and it can be withdrawn at any time. It is also important to recognize that a person who is incapacitated due to alcohol or drugs, or who is under the age of consent, is unable to give valid consent. It is never acceptable to engage in sexual activity with someone without their clear and enthusiastic consent.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we understand the emotional and physical trauma that sexual assault victims endure. Being the victim of sexual assault can cause significant, ongoing mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Symptoms of these disorders can include flashbacks, panic attacks, and difficulty sleeping.

The trauma of sexual assault can also have an impact on relationships, leading to difficulty trusting others or feeling safe in social situations. It is important for survivors of sexual assault to seek support and treatment, such as therapy, to address the ongoing effects of their trauma. But getting the necessary help and care can be expensive.

Instances of sexual assault are increasing across the country. Indeed, in just one year, sexual assaults in British Columbia rose by 15%. If you have experienced sexual assault in Abbotsford, you may be able to work with Preszler Injury Lawyers to get the compensation you deserve.

According to the province’s Limitation Act, there is no time limit on when a sexual assault claim can be pursued. That means, even if your assault took place many years in the past, you could still be eligible to fight for justice and compensation by working with our legal team.
