NEW YORK, August 13, 2021, (nypost.com)
Tomorrow marks the final day to file child sexual abuse cases in New York under the New York Child Victims’ Act.
From the New York Post article:
“Overall, the [Child Victims’ Act] window has accomplished what it was intended to do,” said Jeff Herman from Herman Law, which has brought at least 1,400 cases under the law. “By giving victims the opportunity to seek justice, we have helped thousands of New Yorkers who were sexually abused as children. For the first time in their lives, they are able to seek accountability and share their stories to begin the healing process.”
“The added benefit is that we are able to expose hundreds of previously unidentified predators, which will protect children in the future,” he added.
Other states have passed similar laws including the California Child Victim’s Act which has a deadline of December 31, 2022. Hiring a child sex abuse lawyer empowers victims and gives them a voice. Herman Law only represents victims of sexual abuse. Do not hesitate to contact us to get the compensation that you deserve.
