Richmond Sexual Assault Lawyers


Sexual assault is a crime that happens when someone forces or threatens to force someone else to have sexual contact without their consent. It can happen to anyone, no matter their age, gender, or background.

Unfortunately, instances of sexual assault in British Columbia appear to be skyrocketing. Over the course of one year alone, the province’s cases of reported sexual assaults rose by 15%.

Sexual assault can have a profound impact on survivors. It can also cause survivors to develop emotional and psychological problems, like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some survivors may have trouble sleeping, eating, or going to work or school. They may feel scared, angry, or ashamed.

The psychological trauma of sexual assault can lead to financial losses. Some potential ways that the psychological trauma of sexual assault can affect an individual’s financial well-being include:

  • Lost wages: The emotional and physical effects of sexual assault can make it difficult for survivors to focus on work or attend their job regularly. This can result in lost wages or income if the survivor is unable to work or has to take time off.
  • Medical expenses: Sexual assault can lead to physical injuries that require medical treatment. These medical expenses can add up, becoming a substantial source of stress for survivors.
  • Therapy costs: Many survivors of sexual assault find it helpful to seek therapy to address the emotional and psychological effects of the trauma they have experienced. These therapy costs can also be a financial burden.
  • Difficulty returning to work: The psychological trauma of sexual assault can make it difficult for survivors to return to work or to focus on their job duties. This can lead to lost opportunities for advancement or promotions, which can affect a survivor’s earning potential over the long term.

It is important to recognize that every survivor’s experience is unique, and the financial consequences of sexual assault will vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. However, it is common for survivors to face financial challenges as a result of the psychological trauma they have experienced.
