The New York Child Victims Act and Sex Abuse Claims
When you’re seeking compensation for your family’s losses, it can be tough to get the compensation you’re qualified for. You may be worried about acting in time and getting compensated fairly for your losses.
Recent changes in the law make that easier than ever. New York’s Child Victims Act gives you until you’re 55 years old to file your lawsuit. In the one-year window after the act’s passing, you may have time to act even if you’re over 55.
Other limits to your claim, such as requirements to notify the liable party of a claim within a short time, have also been removed. Now, with the help of a Boy Scout sexual abuse lawyer, you may have more time and more opportunities than ever to act now and get compensated for your suffering.
Compensation for Bronx Boy Scout Sexual Abuse
Knowing how much your suffering cost you is another important step in the process. You’ll need to know what your claim is worth—otherwise, it’s easy to accept a smaller amount than you deserve, which makes your financial recovery more difficult.
However, Boy Scout sexual abuse claims are usually less focused on financial costs. Because these claims usually involve childhood sexual abuse, the focus of your claim may be on the intangible mental and emotional losses you’ve suffered because of your abuse.
These damages may not have a price tag attached, like your medical bills or other financial losses may have. These losses caused by the abuse, or damages, can be calculated based on the severity of your losses and the impact your emotional trauma had on your life.
