What is the process of a sexual assault case?

A sexual assault survivor has many options for how to proceed. They may:

  • Bring the case to police for a criminal investigation;
  • File a human rights complaint;
  • Lodge a complaint with a professional disciplinary body that the perpetrator belongs to;
  • Seek emergency funding from Ontario’s Victim Quick Response Program; or
  • File a civil claim.

A sexual assault lawyer at Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers will carefully explain each of these options and steps involved so you can make an informed decision.
