Manhattan Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Lawyer
If you’ve suffered sexual abuse because of a Manhattan Boy Scout member, you may be entitled to compensation for that suffering. Talk to your New York lawyer about your lawsuit and how to obtain maximum compensation.
Boy Scouts of America is known for its work in building leadership skills, community, and education for children around America, but recent allegations have changed things for many families. Victims of child sexual abuse who suffered abuse from predatory Boy Scout leaders are now coming forward with their stories and seeking legal help.
At Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, we understand that seeking compensation for a sexual abuse claim isn’t easy. That’s where your Manhattan Boy Scout sexual abuse lawyer can step in and help you file a personal injury claim.
New York’s Child Victims Act
If you’ve suffered sexual abuse, it’s tough to recover from those losses and get compensated for your suffering. The good news is, this process has gotten a little easier for abuse victims because of New York’s Child Victims Act. Now, abuse victims have more opportunities to seek compensation.
In the past, you only had a few years to file a sexual abuse claim, and you were required to file a notice of claim that stated you were intending to sue at some point. Now, you can file until you’re fifty-five, and those over fifty-five can file for a limited time after the act’s passing. If you’ve suffered sexual abuse through a Boy Scout program, talk to your lawyer about compensation you’re now eligible for.
Compensation for Boy Scout Sex Abuse Victims
When you’re suffering because of someone else’s actions, you have the chance to act now for your compensation. That compensation should cover all the losses you suffered because of the abuse. These are known as damages and can be economic or non-economic in nature.
The first type of damages covers all the financial losses you suffered, such as medical bills. However, the majority of your losses may be mental and emotional. For example, you may now have nightmares about the incident, or you may be unable to carry on a relationship with others because of the trauma you suffered.
These losses are intangible, which makes them difficult to calculate, so talk to your Manhattan Boy Scout sex abuse attorney about your claim’s monetary value. Below is a short example of the non-economic damages you may be entitled to:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
