Westchester Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Have you suffered sexual abuse as a child or adult? You may be eligible for compensation for your suffering. Speak to a Westchester sex abuse attorney about your options.
Sexual abuse is a serious problem that leaves many people traumatized, overwhelmed, and unable to lead the same lives they did before the incident. Sadly, you may have suffered because a predator took advantage of you.
If you’ve been sexually abused, talk to your lawyer at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP about your claim. Your Westchester sexual abuse lawyer can help you understand the details of your claim.
Pressing Charges or Filing a Claim for Westchester Sex Abuse Claims
In some cases, the abuser who hurt you may already be facing criminal charges. That may be a relief, but it doesn’t mean you’ll receive compensation. These criminal charges are intended to punish the liable party, not compensate you for your losses.
Because of this, you’ll need to file a civil lawsuit in addition to the criminal trial. Your lawsuit gives you a chance to seek compensation for your suffering when you’ve been abused sexually by another person.
New York’s Child Victims Act
If you were sexually abused as a child, you may be concerned about the time that has passed since your sexual abuse. You may be worried that you don’t have a chance to file.
You could be wrong. The New York Child Victims Act gives many victims of child sex abuse a new chance to sue. You now may file a lawsuit until you’re fifty-five. That gives victims more time to prepare for their lawsuit and make up for the decades of suppression of these lawsuits.
Are you over fifty-five years old? You may still be eligible for compensation. Talk to your sexual abuse lawyer about your options during the one-year time window since the New York Child Victims Act passed.
Compensation for Westchester Sexual Abuse Victims
During a sexual abuse claim, it’s important to know exactly what your claim is worth. If you’re not sure of the value of your claim, it’s easy to accept less than it’s worth. For example, did you know that you can seek both economic and non-economic damages?
Westchester residents who have suffered sexual abuse may be eligible for compensation that covers the following damages, among others:
- Medical care
- Loss of society
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
