James H. Brown Injury Lawyer’s advocacy for survivors of sexual assault has contributed to changes in the law in Alberta. The Limitations Act, RSA 2000, c L-12 was amended in 2017 to specify there is no limitation period for filing a lawsuit in Alberta for a claim relating to sexual assault or battery. The Limitations Act no longer requires lawsuits for sexual assault to be brought within two years from the date of the assault, meaning survivors of sexual assault can seek justice and compensation years later, at any time they are able and ready to purse legal action.
