New York School Sexual Abuse Attorneys

Representing Sexual Abuse Survivors Nationwide – (800) 700-8450

The Child Victims Act: This newly passed bill allows victims of child sex abuse to file a civil lawsuit against the offender up until their 55th birthday. And if you previously had a barred claim, you may be able to file a claim within one year, no matter what your age is.

A major legislative change in New York has been enacted in the pursuit of bringing child sex abusers to justice. Previously, survivors of child sexual abuse had only until their 23rd birthday to seek civil action. Survivors now have until they turn 55 to pursue justice, and those with currently barred cases now have a one-year window in which they could revive their claim. If you were sexually abused as a child by a schoolteacher or another person in the school system, Manly Stewart & Finaldi would be honored to help you find your voice.
