Westchester School Sexual Abuse Lawyer
If you’ve suffered abuse because of faculty or staff at a school, you may be entitled to compensation. Speak with your Westchester school sex abuse attorney for guidance on your claim.
Sexual abuse is a serious problem, and it’s one that could impact your health, emotional well-being, and future long after any physical wounds have healed. Unfortunately, many children suffer sexual abuse because of predators within the Westchester school systems and other schools all over the world.
At Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, we understand the difficulties you may have recovering from your losses. Luckily, a Westchester school sexual abuse lawyer can help you recover monetary justice through a personal injury claim.
Liability for School Sexual Abuse
When you’re ready to file a Westchester school sexual abuse lawsuit, you’ll first need to determine the at-fault parties for your losses. You may be suing the faculty member who sexually abused you or your child, as they were the predator who committed the abuse.
However, the school may be sued, as well. Teachers are required to report suspected or witnessed abuse. If the school didn’t report the abuse, they could also be held responsible for the suffering your family experienced.
New York’s Child Victims Act
If you’ve put off filing a lawsuit because you didn’t think you had a chance to win, you may have a new opportunity to sue for your losses. New York recently passed the Child Victims Act, which gives you new chances to file.
For example, you now have a chance to file a claim until you’re age fifty-five. You’ll also have new chances to press criminal charges and fewer restrictions on filing lawsuits. That makes it easier for your Westchester school sexual abuse attorney to help you get compensation and closure.
Compensation for School Sexual Abuse VIctims
If you’ve been sexually abused by a Westchester teacher, you may be concerned about getting fairly compensated for your losses. The good news is, your Westchester school sex abuse lawyer can help.
For example, your financial losses may not be expensive, beyond the costs of your medical care and future losses caused by the abuse. Instead of focusing on your financial losses, your lawyer may seek compensation for the intangible losses you’ve suffered. These damages may include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and the loss of enjoyment of life you may have experienced because of the abuse.
