Sexual abuse can take many forms and can leave physical and emotional scars that last a lifetime. In most cases, sexual abuse and sexual assault crimes are committed by people who were known to their victims, including individuals in positions of authority, or someone the victim trusted. We understand that this connection can make it even more difficult for survivors of sexual abuse to speak up.
At Valent Legal, we recognize you may be struggling with difficult decisions, and we respect your choices. We believe that survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault deserve more than just legal counsel. You need support, respect, and a chance to rebuild your trust in people. And sometimes, it’s just helpful to have a friendly, objective person to talk to.
While it cannot erase the past, there are several legal avenues that can help compensate you for the terrible violence that you have endured, because the courts in Canada recognize the long-term suffering and turmoil that survivors of sexual abuse experience.
We can talk about some of these options, and you can decide if this is something you want to pursue. For a free, no-risk case assessment, give us a call. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no fees until you get a settlement or you win a judgment in court. In most cases, our service exceeds our clients’ expectations.
