New York City Child Sexual Abuse Lawyer

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. Laws in New York are changing to curb these shocking and unfortunate circumstances. 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. For 1 year, the act extends the statute of limitations to bring a claim for those who were sexually abused, assaulted, or molested when they were under the age of 18, regardless of their current age. If you were a victim of child sexual abuse and would like to discuss your options, contact a Leeds Brown Law Long Island and New York City Child Sexual Abuse Lawyer today.

The Child Victims Act | One Year To Seek Justice And Recovery

All child victims will have the ability to make claims until they reach the age of 55. However, for a short window of time, child victims of sexual abuse can bring a claim against their victimizer regardless of their current age or how long ago the abuse occurred. Even if your case was denied in the past because you missed a deadline, you now have the chance to bring that case again under the new law.
