NY's new law can only help you if you take action

Sexual Abuse in Religious Institutions

 Religious institutions such as the Catholic Church, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Orthodox Jewish organizations have long covered up the problem of their leaders sexually abusing children. Victims sexually abused by their religious leader like a priest, minister, rabbi or elder are entitled to justice for the injuries they suffered. 

Sexual Abuse in Schools

 Private day and boarding schools as well as public schools owe every student the duty to protect her or him from sexual abuse by its teachers. Teachers who sexually abuse exploit the trust placed in them by their students. Unfortunately, many schools have ether ignored complaints of sexual abuse or sought to cover-up them up. 

Sexual Abuse in Youth Organizations

Scoutmasters, sports coaches and Boys and Girls Club leaders to name a few, all are mentors to the children with whom they work. For all the good they do, many of these youth organizations have long-known about the problem of their employees and volunteers sexually abusing their youth members.

Who Can File for the Child Victims Act?

If you are a survivor of sexual abuse you may be able to bring a claim against your abuser or the entity responsible for facilitating the abuse if:  

  1. The abuse began prior to your 18th birthday,
  2. The abuse took place in New York State, and
  3. You suffered from physical, psychological or other injuries.

Survivors of childhood sexual abuse of any age may be able to bring a claim until August 14, 2020.

After August 14, 2020, survivors may only be able to bring a claim until their 55th birthday.
