Toronto Cyber Bullying Lawyers
You’re not alone. Our Ontario attorneys know the law and can stand up for your rights.
Online bullying can have serious consequences. Sometimes, the words someone writes and sends online can be threatening or humiliating. Other times, cyber bullying can be more direct and involve sending harassing text messages or social media posts. While teenagers may be best known for cyber bullying, these cases can involve anyone at any age.
If you or a loved one has been bullied online in Ontario, our experienced Toronto cyber bullying attorneys at Smitiuch Injury Law can help you hold the people who harassed you accountable for their actions. If necessary, we can also help you take legal action against any agencies or organizations who failed to act after you or a loved one reported being harassed.
What is cyber bullying?

What makes cyber bullying cases complicated?
Cyber bullying cases might seem straightforward. You might think you don’t even need a lawyer if someone clearly violated Ontario’s Education Act or other provincial or federal laws governing cyber bullying in Ontario. The reality is many cyber bullying cases turn out to be far more complicated for many different reasons, including:
- The person who bullied you or a loved one denies doing anything wrong.
- Offensive messages or social posts have been erased.
- The person who bullied you claims you made up being bullied.
- The identity of the person harassing or threatening you online is unknown.
