Former Client Testimonial
As a graduation gift to myself after completing 4 years of university, I decided to book a 2-week long trip with a well-known travel company. Three days into the trip, I was sexually assaulted and raped by the company’s tour guide—someone I was supposed to be able to trust. The company’s response after it was told what had happened was awful and added insult to injury.
When I was forced to return home early to Canada a few days later, the reality of what had happened to me struck me. All I had ever dreamt of in high school and university was travelling and seeing the world. My dreams had been shattered by what happened that terrible night and the days following. I knew I would never feel confident enough to travel on my own again, especially in a foreign country. I quickly sunk into a depression, and was eventually diagnosed with PTSD, major depressive disorder, and anxiety. I felt powerless and didn’t know where to turn.
A friend of the family had recommended me to Lerners, and I’m so happy I called. Although the litigation process was emotionally and mentally exhausting, and there were many times that I wanted to quit, retaining Elizabeth Grace was the best thing I could have done for myself. She showed a genuine concern for my injuries and the impact the assaults had on all aspects of my life, from my personal relationships to the impact on my work. She and the rest of the staff at Lerners always kept me informed on the progress of my case, and were there to listen to my concerns and answer any questions whenever they came up. I am thankful to Ms. Grace and her staff for their diligence, hard work and persistence.
While I will never be the same because of the traumatic and preventable experiences I suffered, after many years of protracted and difficult litigation, I can now receive the proper psychological treatment I need to move forward with my life and live the best life possible, not only for me but my family. I am forever grateful and would recommend Elizabeth Grace to anybody who has suffered as a result of being sexually assaulted.
