Sexual abuse is a serious injury that has profound physical and emotional effects. These injuries dramatically alter the life of the victim. As most abusers are family, friends, or individuals in a position of authority it can often take years or decades for a survivor to come forward. In recognition of this, Nova Scotia has removed the time limitation on bringing forward a claim for sexual abuse.
Commencing a sexual abuse claim can be overwhelming. At Wagners, we are here to provide you with the compassion, guidance, and advocacy you need to navigate this type of claim.
A sexual abuse claim cannot fully remedy the abuse you have endured. However, compensation does aid survivors in moving forward. In many cases, sexual abuse claims include damages based upon pain and suffering, loss of income, physical and psychological care, and valuable services.
