Extended California Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Deadline
California has a law on the books known as the statute of limitations. The new law is known as California Child Victims Act or Assembly Bill 218.
The statute of limitations establishes a specific deadline by which a particular type of case needs to be filed in court. If the filing deadline is missed, a person is forever precluded from pursuing a lawsuit seeking justice, accountability, and deserved compensation.
Historically in California – as was the case in all states across the country – the time period to file a sexual abuse lawsuit was quite limited. Recently, the California sexual abuse statute of limitations was expanded significantly in order to better protect the legal rights of people who are the victims of this type of assault.
One of the ways in which the California sexual abuse statute of limitations has been expanded is through the creation of a three-year window during which any survivor of sexual abuse can file a lawsuit. A California sexual abuse survivor can file a lawsuit seeking justice and accountability no matter how old they are and regardless of when the abuse occurred.
The three-year window opened on January 1, 2020. This broad expansion of the California sexual abuse statute of limitations remains open for three years from that point in time.
We are more than halfway through the time period. You can arrange an appointment with an experienced, dedicated California sexual abuse lawyer right now by calling The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000. You cannot wait, anticipating that the period to file a California sexual abuse lawsuit will be extended beyond the window that opened at the beginning of 2020. Time is of the essence if you want to take full advantage of this opportunity to protect your vital legal interests.
40-Year Statute of Limitations for Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
The same California law, the California Child Victims Act or Assembly Bill 218, greatly expanded the general statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases. According to the California Child Victims Act, a child sexual abuse survivor now generally has until the age of 40 to file a lawsuit seeking justice, accountability, and compensation. An experienced Doan Law Firm California sexual abuse attorney can answer any questions you might have about this new law and pursuing a claim for the compensation you deserve in your case.
