This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • What Is the Statute of Limitations for Sexual Abuse Claims in New York?

    The statute of limitations for sexual abuse claims in New York can vary based on the type of abuse and specific details of the case. For some cases, the deadline to file can be two years following the date of abuse. It is strongly advised to speak with a legal expert who can help determine the timeframe you have to file a case.

  • What Is the Process for Pursuing a Legal Case for Sexual Abuse?

    The process will start with a confidential consultation, followed by an investigation of your case, which may include gathering evidence and filing a lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances, your case may be settled out of court or proceed to trial. If you have questions about how sexual assault cases are handled, contact us today.

  • Can Third Parties Be Held Responsible for Sexual Abuse?

    Yes, in addition to pursuing legal action against an abuser for physical and emotional harm, it can also be possible to hold third parties accountable under certain circumstances. For instance, if a property owner’s negligence allowed an assailant to enter a building or home and commit an attack, that landlord could be liable.

    This can also potentially extend to situations where an institution, organization, or individual failed to take steps to prevent sexual assault when they had a responsibility to prevent it. Speaking with a legal expert will be critical in understanding how this might apply to your specific case and exploring all avenues for justice and compensation.

  • How Do I Start the Process of Filing a Claim?

    The first step in filing a claim is to contact a personal injury attorney for a free and confidential consultation. This meeting will allow you time to share your story, understand your rights, and discuss potential legal options.
