New York Boy Scouts Sex Abuse Lawsuit

Boy Scouts is a popular program among young boys, but sadly, many abusers have used the program to commit sexual abuse against young children. Now, many people are learning how severe the suffering and abuse was.

Fortunately, that means many people are realizing that they have a chance to file a New York Boy Scouts sex abuse lawsuit with a lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP. We have the tools you need to get compensated for your lawsuit and overcome your losses.

How New York’s Child Victims Act Changes Sex Abuse Lawsuits

Recently, New York has made some major legal changes. That means you have more opportunities to file and get your maximum compensation.

For example, the New York Child Victims Act raises the time limits to file a sex abuse lawsuit, so that you can file until you’re fifty-five. If you’re over fifty-five, you may still be able to file a claim during a one-year window after the act’s passing.

Other restrictions have been phased out, as well. If your abuse or your child’s Boy Scout sex abuse lawsuit was recent, you may have time to press criminal charges, as well. You’re also no longer required to file a notice of claim, which meant you had to notify the Boy Scouts that you planned to sue them for sex abuse. These laws simply make it easier for you and your family to take legal action for your claim.

Compensation for New York Boy Scouts Sexual Abuse Claims

As you prepare to file your Boy Scouts sexual abuse lawsuit, it’s important to consider what that claim is financially worth. If you’re not sure what your claim is worth, it’s easy to settle for much less than your claim is worth.

For example, you may be thinking about your financial losses caused by the injuries. However, these may not be as severe—you may receive compensation for medical care and lost earning potential, but you may not have experienced many financial changes because of the abuse.

Instead of focusing on your economic damages, your lawyer may focus on the non-economic losses you’ve suffered, which take a toll on your mental and emotional well-being. These losses are intangible, though, which means you may need the special tools your attorney can provide for your claim.
