Liability for Boy Scout Sexual Abuse
If you’ve been sexually abused by someone in the Brooklyn Boy Scouts, you may be eligible for compensation from them. Typically, your abuser is the one who’s responsible for your trauma, and they should be held accountable for your suffering.
However, they may not be the only liable party. Boy Scouts of America as an organization may also be held liable for failing to act on allegations. Reports may have been ignored or covered up completely, thereby protecting and enabling abusers in the organization. Your Boy Scout sexual abuse lawyer can help you file a claim against the right parties.
New York’s Child Victims Act and Your Deadlines
Your sexual abuse incident may have happened years or even decades ago. Now, you may be worried about your options for compensation. You may be worried that you’re no longer eligible to file a claim.
Fortunately, recent legal changes have made it possible for sexual abuse victims to get compensation, despite the date of the abuse. For example, if you’re less than fifty-five years old, you should be eligible for compensation with a lawyer’s help. If you’re over fifty-five, you may be able to act within the one-year window after the act passed to file your claim.
Compensation for Brooklyn Abuse Victims
When you’ve suffered sexual abuse because of the Boy Scouts program, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, or the losses you’ve suffered because of the abuse. That can be difficult because your losses are likely both economic and non-economic.
Your economic damages cover any expenses you accrued because of the abuse. Medical bills, for example, may count. However, because you were a child, many of your damages may be non-economic. That means you may be due compensation for losses that affected your mental and emotional health, like pain and suffering or mental trauma.
An experienced attorney can help collect and calculate the full worth of your damages.
