Know your rights under the New York Child Victims Act

For one year, between August 14, 2019 – August 13, 2020, a child sex abuse victim can start a civil case:

  • No matter how old you are
  • No matter how long ago the abuse took place
  • Even if the claim was too late under the old statute of limitations
  • Even if you sued the abuser before and the case was dismissed because you waited too long
  • Even if a Notice of Claim was never filed
  • Whether you are suing the abuser or organizations or persons that should have done something to stop or prevent the abuse from happening (like a school, an employer, or a place of worship)
