Our Ottawa injury lawyers understand it takes courage to come forward after a sexual assault.

Many sexual assaults occur to people at a young age by persons known to them, like family members, family friends or someone in a position of authority. Children who have been sexually assaulted generally aren’t psychologically mature enough to understand their experience or it’s emotional complexity. Often, it’s kept secret or repressed, and the feelings of pain, guilt and shame are carried into their adulthood.

Adults who’ve been through a sexual assault face similar emotional challenges when describing their experience to others. When people start a lawsuit against the perpetrator, they can often become despondent or ashamed about sharing their experience, or fearful they won’t be believed, which can make the process of seeking damages difficult. As an experienced Ottawa assault lawyer,  I understand the courage it takes to confront the person who committed the sexual assault and relive your traumatic experience. We are here for you and with you every step of the way.
