ASK LLP is highly experienced in cases involving sexual abuse and trafficking. Our team has represented thousands of abuse survivors across the United States. In recent years, controversy has surrounded the Boy Scouts of America as well as Catholic and Protestant churches alike. It has come to light that many young people in these organizations may have been sexually abused or preyed upon by leaders in positions of power (including scout leaders, chaperones, members of clergy, and others).
Legal reforms, such as New York’s Child Victims Act, make it possible for the victims of sexual abuse to file lawsuits for compensation even when the usual statute of limitations has expired. With the passage of these new laws, many thousands of individuals have joined mass torts against public and private school systems, community organizations like the Boy Scouts, and religious institutions like the Catholic Church, alleging that these entities failed to protect them from predatory behavior.
ASK LLP’s Team is Ready to Help
Our team at ASK LLP understands that past sexual abuse is often a difficult topic for survivors to discuss. Many of our clients have spoken to us for the first time about their past abuse. Our team is trained, patient, and sympathetic. We take the time to hear your story and give you a voice. Our conversations are confidential, kind, and professional.
If you suffered sexual abuse while at school, in the Scouts, or from religious leaders, you may be entitled to compensation even if the abuse happened decades ago. The organization may owe you for:
- Physical and emotional distress
- The cost of necessary medical care or therapy
- Punitive damages
