Sexual Assault Claims

At Ottawa Disability Lawyers, we recognize the daily challenges confronted by survivors of sexual assault. We are committed to providing support and helping them obtain the disability benefits they rightfully deserve.

Understanding the Impact of Sexual Assault


Sexual assault is a heinous crime that can shatter lives, leaving victims with deep emotional and physical scars. Defined as any unwanted sexual contact without consent, it can have profound and varied effects on the mental and physical well-being of those affected.

Survivors of sexual assault may experience a range of emotional responses, including fear, anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These effects can linger long after the assault, affecting every aspect of a survivor’s life from their health to their work, family lives and relationships.

Challenges in Seeking Sexual Assault Claims

For many sexual assault survivors, the journey to pursue a disability claim is fraught with daunting challenges that take an emotional toll. One of the primary hurdles lies in diagnosing sexual assault trauma.

Unlike physical injuries, the psychological impact of sexual assault may not manifest immediately, but rather surface gradually over time. The delayed onset of symptoms can make it difficult for survivors to recognize and articulate the full extent of their suffering, leading to potential complications in the claims process.

Adding to the complexity, insurance companies often exhibit hesitation or outright denial when it comes to claims related to sexual assault. Such responses not only exacerbate the victim’s distress but also hinder their access to crucial financial support and resources.

An adversarial stance from insurers can leave survivors feeling disheartened and invalidated, underscoring the pressing need for experienced legal support to navigate the intricate landscape of claim dispute proceedings.

At Ottawa Disability Lawyers, we understand these challenges intimately and are committed to providing support and advocacy to survivors of sexual assault. Our compassionate legal team stands by survivors, helping them overcome these obstacles while seeking the justice and benefits they rightfully deserve.
