Adult Survivors Act
The Adult Survivors Act (ASA) creates a one-year lookback period for adult victims of sexual abuse to bring a sexual abuse lawsuit even if the abuse occurred decades ago and their time to bring a sexual abuse lawsuit has long expired. The lookback period begins on November 24, 2022, and ends on November 24, 2023.
Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP has represented hundreds of children victims against employers, churches, schools, and municipalities under the Child Victims Act. We are now committed to seeking justice for adult victims of sexual abuse.
Who’s Liable Under the ASA?
If you’re a victim of sexual abuse, you may have grounds to file a claim against the people or institutions who are responsible for the suffering you experienced. We can help you pursue compensation for your injuries if you were a victim of adult sexual abuse at any of the following institutions:
- Hospitals, universities, and medical programs
- Catholic Church or other religious institutions
- Universities, colleges, and schools
- Residential care and/or group homes
- Law enforcement
- Entertainment industry
- Spas and massage parlors
- Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft
Damages for Your ASA Claim
Adults who have suffered sexual abuse experience long-lasting emotional and physical injuries. The impact on the lives of adult sexual abuse victims can and usually does last a lifetime. Victims of sexual abuse can recover monetary damages for their physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and even punitive damages.
But calculating these damages can be difficult. If you’re struggling to calculate the economic and non-economic damages you’ve suffered, reach out for help from an attorney.
