Assault & Battery

Assault is any unwanted touching, hitting or striking of your body. This includes any type of unwanted physical or sexual touching of your body. If you have been assaulted, you should first contact the police to investigate whether criminal charges should be laid against the person who assaulted you. These charges will then be prosecuted by the government through the office of your local crown attorney.

You may also pursue financial compensation for any physical or psychological injury suffered as a result of that assault. You can apply for compensation from the government if you are the victim of a criminal act and pursue legal action to obtain compensation for your pain and suffering, past and future income loss, medical and legal costs. The amount in which you are entitled to will depend on both the type of assault and the injuries you have suffered.
