Adult Survivors Act

On May 24, 2022, New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law the Adult Survivors Act, which gives adult sexual abuse survivors more time to file a lawsuit seeking justice against their abusers and the institutions responsible for allowing the abuse to occur.

The law provides a one-year lookback window, which will lift the statute of limitations for sexual abuse claims during that time period. This one-year window begins six months from the day the law was enacted.

After signing the bill into law, Governor Hochul had this to say to abusers 'Your time is up... Your victims will see you in court and you will be brought to justice.'

This Is Your Chance To Seek Justice Against Your Abusers And The Institutional Organizations That Allowed This Abuse To Occur

Although you cannot change the past, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR FUTURE. The Adult Survivor's Act provides adult sexual abuse victims with an extended opportunity to file a lawsuit against their abusers and other responsible parties. And, financial compensation may be available.

Even if you were abused many years ago, you may still be able to file a claim. The one-year lookback period will begin soon. There may be time for you to file a lawsuit under the Adult Survivor's Act, but that time is limited so we encourage you to check to see if you are eligible to file a claim sooner than later.

The Choice Is Yours

But whatever you choose, you are not alone.

New York State Senator Brad Hoylman, a supporter of the bill, remarked:

For many survivors it takes years to come to terms with the abuses committed against them, let alone to summon the courage to come forward to report the abuse...

We couldn't agree more. Speaking out takes courage, and we are right by your side.

You've waited long enough - now is your chance to seek justice.

We completely understand that sexual assault survivors often keep quiet about abuse for a variety of reasons - often survivors fear being judged, punished, shamed, or even fear for their safety or their family's well-being. Or, survivors may have stayed silent because they did not think anyone would believe them. Not only do we understand all of this, but WE BELIEVE YOU!

Not only does the Adult Survivor's Act allow survivors to sue their abusers for abuse that took place decades before, but it also allows survivors to file claims against the institutions responsible for enabling the abusers and allowing the abuse to continue, unfettered.

If you are a resident of the state of New York and you are a survivor of sexual abuse that took place when you were over the age of 18, you may be able to file a lawsuit and seek justice, including financial compensation for your pain and suffering.
