Gersowitz Libo & Korek, PC, a law firm based in New York, announced an updated range of child abuse law services following the latest legal developments. The New York State Child Victims Act has introduced a one-year window during which victims previously barred from pursuing claims can now file a cause of action, and has extended the time for filing criminal cases to age 28, among other provisions.

Prior to the passing of the New York State Child Victims Act, victims of child abuse could only file a criminal claim up to the age of 23. The CVA not only extended this period to age 28, but also created a statute of limitation for civil claims that allows victims to file civil claims up to the age of 55, no matter how long ago the abuse took place.

Additionally, the New York State CVA also introduced a one-year window for victims of child abuse who were previously barred from filing a cause of action. The period has just started on August 14 and will end on August 14, 2020.

To ensure an adequate course of legal action and avoid potential misinterpretation, Gersowitz Libo & Korek recommend that all claims be filed no later than August 13, 2020.
