New York Child Victims Act

The New York Child Victims Act makes a necessary change to long standing precedent in statutes of limitations in child sexual assault cases. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made this Act one of his top initiatives for 2018-19, and after the Legislature voted to approve the legislation on Monday Jan 28th,2019, it now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

The Child Victims Act will extend the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse crimes to the age of 28 in criminal cases and the age of 50 in civil cases, with a one year-window to bring civil claims for victims below that age limit.

For more information on the act and if you feel that a claim can be revived, contact us today.

Herman Law Investigating Cases Ahead Of The Child Victims Act Legislation

Herman Law is investigating sex abuse cases in New York, in anticipation of passage of the Child Victims Act.  The firm’s New York office already represents several victims whose cases are precluded by the statute of limitations in New York and has been waiting to be able to bring justice to these survivors.  Finally, it appears that this important legislation will pass and victims of sexual abuse in New York will have a measure of justice.  In addition, these cases will expose predators who otherwise are hidden in our communities.  If the law passes, we expect that victims from the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts, Temples, Schools and sports teams will come forward.  The lawyers at Herman Law only handle sexual abuse cases and have represented over 1,000 victims since 1997.  The firm offers free consultations and works on a contingency fee bases.  Now is the time to reach out and seek justice.
