Victims of sexual assault, like many crime victims, wish to focus on their personal recovery before they consider legal action. However, for many sexual assault victims, the tools of the law can be helpful in securing them needed compensation to recover losses they have suffered as a result of the assault and to provide for their long-term recovery.

Tilbury Assault Injuries Lawyers
Sexual assault victims often require long-term psychological and physical care to recover from their experience. A sexual assault may be a one-time incident suffered at the hands of a stranger or a person in a position of authority, such as a teacher or doctor. The abuse of trust can compound the psychological devastation of an assault.
In Ontario, sexual assault is considered a violent crime. Our clients may therefore have recourse to compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, which provides a provincial fund to compensate victims of crime in this province. Our clients can also file a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator directly, possibly receiving damages for losses related to the assault and their pain and suffering.
Our law firm supplies each client with the personal attention, sensitivity and compassion he or she requires. As experienced legal counsel, we understand the stress of a legal claim is difficult for our injured clients to deal with, and we aim to ease that burden. That is why we take the lead on our clients' legal claims while keeping them engaged at every step of the process.
