Bronx Catholic Church Sex Abuse Lawyer

Have you suffered sex abuse because of the clergy in a Bronx Catholic Church? You may have grounds to seek compensation with an attorney’s help.

The Catholic Church has been impacted over the past few decades by accusations of child sexual abuse being overlooked or covered up in many churches. Now, new laws have been put in place to help families and victims of sexual abuse recover from the suffering they’ve experienced. 

If you or your child has suffered sex abuse in the Catholic Church, you may have new options for compensation with the lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP. Your Bronx Catholic Church sex abuse lawyer can represent you in civil court and help you seek justice in the form of monetary compensation. 

Liability for Sex Abuse in Bronx Catholic Churches

When you’re dealing with a Bronx Catholic Church sex abuse lawsuit, it’s important to know who’s responsible for the suffering you’ve experienced. Filing a lawsuit against the wrong party can draw out a legal claim, and make it hard for you to focus on your emotional recovery. 

In many cases, the abuser is the at-fault party. They chose to harm a child, and they can be held liable for the damage they caused. 

However, they may not be the only one responsible for that suffering. The Catholic Church has also been accused of covering up or ignoring these cases, which leads to even more sex abuse within Bronx Catholic churches and other churches around the world. Because of this, you may be eligible for compensation from the church, too. 

How the New York Child Victims Act Affects Your Claim

If you’ve suffered sexual abuse because of a priest in the Bronx, you’ll need to know the laws that could affect whether you receive maximum compensation. Fortunately, the New York’s Child Victims Act makes it easier for victims to come forward, even if the abuse happened long ago.

Before the act passed, you were extremely limited on options, especially if your claim happened years ago. You had only a few years to file a civil or criminal case; you had to notify the Catholic Church within a short period that you planned to sue; and, many people still acted on the stigma around sexual abuse. 

Now, priest sex abuse survivors have more time to file—until you’re fifty-five, you may be able to sue. The requirements for notifying the Catholic Church have been changed as well, and sex abuse victims now have more freedom than ever to seek compensation for their suffering.
