New Jersey’s new law greatly expands the rights of survivors of childhood sexual abuse, including the creation of a two year “window” in which anyone can file a claim for the abuse they suffered. That window closes on December 1, 2021.
However, those new rights, including the two year “window,” could be significantly shortened if a defendant files for bankruptcy. For example, since the Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy, the deadline to file a claim in that bankruptcy is November 16, 2020. If you fail to timely file a claim in the bankruptcy you will likely lose any claim you may have against the Boy Scouts, including any right you may have to compensation in the bankruptcy. For that reason it is very important that abuse survivors learn their new rights and understand their options.

The use of the internet or this form to communicate with any attorney or law firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. By using this form, you agree that you are not expecting to receive legal advice from any attorney or law firm that is listed or mentioned on this website, you are not relying on any such attorney or law firm to provide you with legal advice, and you agree that no attorney-client relationship exists until an attorney has affirmatively indicated that an attorney or law firm will represent you. Finally, every case is governed by a statute of limitations, which means it must be filed within a certain amount of time after the event giving rise to liability, so time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
