West Kelowna Sexual Assault Lawyers


According to recent statistics, over the course of just one year, the number of sexual assaults reported to police throughout British Columbia rose by 15%. Unfortunately, this pervasive and harmful crime does not show any signs of abating.

As it so happens, sexual assault is the only violent crime that is not currently in national decline. Each year, tens of thousands of Canadians have their lives upended by the criminal actions of a sexual predator. The survivors of sexual assault often face monumental challenges, and they deserve justice.

Statistically, the most common perpetrators of sexual assault are people the survivor knows, such as a friend, family member, or romantic partner. This means that it is often difficult for survivors to speak out about their assault, as they may fear retribution from their abuser. Many victims of sexual assault suffer in silence, and develop long-lasting, oftentimes debilitating mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Surviving a sexual assault can also come with significant financial burdens. Medical care and therapy can be expensive, and survivors may also experience lost wages if they are unable to work due to the trauma of the assault. These financial pressures can be overwhelming, and can make it difficult for survivors to focus on their physical and emotional healing.

One way survivors can pursue justice is by working with West Kelowna sexual assault lawyers to file a civil claim for damages. This is a legal process that allows survivors to seek compensation for the harm they have suffered as a result of the assault. Working with our sexual assault lawyers serving West Kelowna can be beneficial in this process, as we may be able to help survivors understand their rights and options, and guide them through the process of pursuing compensation.

By working with our West Kelowna sexual assault lawyers, survivors may be able seek compensation for the financial losses they have incurred or will incur, as well as for other harms they have suffered as a result of the assault. Some examples of compensation that might be available include:

  • Medical expenses, including the cost of therapy and counseling
  • Lost wages and reduced future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more

Every case is different, and the amount of compensation a survivor may be able to receive will depend on the specific circumstances of their case.
