VICTIMS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IN NEW YORK

Taking The Most Direct Path To Securing The Compensation You Deserve

VICTIMS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IN NEW YORK

New York State has enacted the Child Victims Act. This law extends the limitations period to age 55 for victims to bring claims of childhood sexual abuse against their abusers, as well as claims as against an institution who negligently hires, retains, and/or supervises the alleged abuser.

Child sex abuse survivors—regardless of age—have one year from Aug. 14, 2019 to bring civil claims in New York. Hundreds of lawsuits have already been filed against major institutions such as the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America other religious and youth organizations. Child sex abuse survivors have a right to recover monetary compensation against these institutions for whom the individual abuser was employed with or affiliated.

In such instances it is essential that the victim childhood sexual abuse is represented by a law firm with extensive trial experience and with and established record of Courtroom results. This is because the amount of monetary compensation is directly related to provable and admissible evidence of damages. This evidence falls into multiple categories such as past and future financial loss; and past and future pain and suffering. The law firm of Keogh Crispi has a well-earned reputation of astuteness in identifying and acquiring the necessary admissible elements of evidence needed to maximize the monetary proof and secure justice for the victim. Our office knows how to use the legal process to our clients’ advantage for this purpose.
