SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIMS
Osborne Cane lawyers have the experience and expertise to represent women and men who have been the survivors of sexual assault, whether the claim is related to historical sexual abuse, date rape, sexual harassment or assault. We appreciate that taking steps towards seeking justice can be challenging and emotionally difficult for survivors and their loved ones. The law in this area has evolved to become more receptive in recognizing these claims and survivors’ circumstances. However, the process towards settlement or judgement can be lengthy and uncertain.
We provide an objective assessment of the available evidence and an opinion on the likelihood of success in the event that the matter proceeds to trial. We provide guidance on options for a negotiated settlement of the claim. Our clients have access to counselling and other supportive care throughout the process of navigating a sexual assault claim, as part of our Exclusive Client Care program.
