NYC Sexual Abuse Lawyer Teacher Coach

Sexual abuse, assault, or molestation can, and in most cases does, cause serious harm to one’s physical and emotional well-being for the rest of their lives. Children are especially susceptible to sexual abuse, assault, or molestation, even by those we have come to trust, such as teachers, coaches, or school counselors. It’s troubling that individuals in positions of authority sometimes abuse their power to malicious ends. Laws in New York are changing to curb these shocking and unfortunate circumstances.

The Child Victims Act

Often, victims take a long time to confront their oppressor(s) or speak out regarding their trauma. In response to the ongoing nature of the trauma, Governor Cuomo signed into law the “Child Victims Protection and Accountability Act,” or the Child Victims Act. The act extends the statute of limitations for child victims who have been sexually abused, assaulted, or molested while under the age of 18. Child victims will have the ability to make claims until they reach age of 55. Additionally, for a short window of time, any person who has been sexually abused, assaulted, or molested under the age of 18 can bring a claim against their victimizer (regardless of their age or how long ago the abuse occurred). This is why it is important to act as soon as possible by contacting an attorney with experience handling cases of sexual abuse or assault. The New York City Sexual Abuse Attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, P.C., are here to help victims in the Five Boroughs, Nassau County and Suffolk County, Long Island, and Westchester County.
