New York Sexual Assault Attorneys

A New Law, A New Chance for Justice

With recent changes in the law, victims of sexual abuse can now seek justice for assault committed by predators and the organizations that harbored them. Until recently, sexual abuse victims were deprived of their right to compensation. On February 14, 2019, the state of New York enacted the New York Child Victims Act that allows victims up to the age of 55 to bring an action for damages against their abuser.

The law provides:

  • A new timeline for victims to file an action
  • Opportunity to file against not only the predator who assaulted them, but the employer and/or organization that harbored them (such as as social clubs, recreation organizations, sporting leagues, public schools, churches, synagogues and other religious institutions.)
Sexual Abuse Litigation

Don’t Wait - Time May Be Limited

The New York Child Victims Act now permits victims of sexual assault whose claims were previously barred by time limitations a short, one-time window to file a civil lawsuit. Do not miss your opportunity to pursue justice against those who committed these horrific acts. Failing to pursue your claims during this one-time window may prevent you from doing so forever. Our attorneys at The Russell Friedman Law Group can provide consultation and analysis based on the specific facts of your case to determine whether the New York Child Victims Act provides a path for you to seek justice.

Employers of the Abuser Can Be Responsible

The individuals committing sexual assault may not be the only one responsible for your injuries and damages. Employers and organizations who knew, or who should have known, of the sexual assault may also be liable under theories of liability such as negligent supervision or negligent hiring.

Sadly, employers and the organizations that harbor sexual predators often ignore the tell-tale signs that sexual assault is occurring under their watch, or fail to take immediate action when sexual assault is discovered. An employer’s acts or omissions in instances of sexual assault can create liability under the New York Child Victims Act.
