Port Coquitlam Sexual Assault Lawyers


Sexual assault is a serious crime that is rampant in British Columbia. Recently, the number of sexual assaults reported to local police reached a record high.

Anytime someone interacts with another person in a sexual way without their consent, they have committed sexual assault. Examples of sexual assault can include rape, attempted rape, sexual harassment, non-consensual touching, and other unwanted sexual advances.

Sexual assault can have a deeply damaging impact on the survivor, causing physical and emotional harm and financial distress. Survivors of sexual assault can face a range of long-lasting challenges as a result of the trauma they have experienced. Some of the potential effects on survivors may include:

  • Emotional distress: Sexual assault can have a profound and lasting impact on the emotional well-being of survivors. Many survivors experience feelings of shame, guilt, and self-blame, as well as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Physical health problems: The physical and emotional trauma of sexual assault can lead to a range of physical health problems, including sleep disturbances, eating disorders, alcohol and/or substance abuse, and self-harm.
  • Difficulty with relationships: The trauma of sexual assault can affect survivors’ relationships with others, including their ability to trust and form new relationships.
  • Career and financial challenges: Sexual assault can also have a significant impact on survivors’ careers and financial well-being. Survivors may struggle to perform their job duties or may need to take time off work, resulting in lost wages and income. If the survivor was a student at the time of their assault, they might have difficulty completing their education, resulting in a reduced future earning capacity.

Every survivor’s experience is unique, and the long-term effects of sexual assault will vary from person to person. However, it is common for survivors to face a range of emotional and financial challenges as a result of the trauma they have experienced. That is why it is important for survivors to get help and support.
