Port Moody Sexual Assault Lawyers


Sexual assault is a serious crime that can have life-changing impacts on the people who experience it. In Port Moody, many survivors of sexual assault need help dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of the crime committed against them.

Many people who have experienced sexual assault may feel a range of emotions, including fear, anxiety, sadness, and shame. These emotions can be difficult to cope with, and they can make it hard for survivors to feel safe and secure in their own bodies. More than half of the country’s sexual assaults are perpetrated by the victims’ friends, acquaintances, and neighours. This betrayal of trust can lead to disabling psychological conditions and mental health disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Lack of self-worth
  • Low self-esteem
  • Alcohol and/or substance abuse disorder
  • Shame
  • nsomnia and other sleeping disorders
  • And more

n addition to the emotional impacts of sexual assault, there can also be physical effects. Some survivors may experience physical injuries as a result of the assault, and they may need medical treatment to heal these injuries. Even if physical injuries were not sustained, many survivors may feel unsafe and uncomfortable in their own bodies after the assault, which can make it hard for them to feel confident and healthy.

One of the biggest challenges for survivors of sexual assault is the fear of talking about what happened. Many people feel ashamed or embarrassed about what happened to them, and they may not want to talk about it with anyone else. This can be especially difficult for survivors who are not sure if they want to report the assault to the police. Indeed, only 6% of sexual assaults in Canada are reported to the police.

t takes a great deal of courage to speak out against people who have committed sexual assault, especially if they have a previous or ongoing romantic or personal relationship to the victim. However, many survivors of sexual assault find empowerment by pursuing legal action against their perpetrator and any other parties who may be liable. Doing so can allow survivors of sexual assault to retake control of the narrative, get the accountability they deserve, and recover compensation for their damages.
