Extended Deadline to File an Oakland Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

California law recently was changed to permit adults the ability to take legal action and seek justice in a case involving their sexual abuse as a child. Specifically, California law now allows a person of any age a period of three years beginning on January 1, 2020, to file a lawsuit seeking accountability and compensation associated with child sexual abuse, no matter how long ago the incident occurred.

We are more than halfway through the time period during which an adult of any age can pursue a lawsuit for sexual abuse or sexual assault that occurred when that individual was a child. Because of this unique opportunity to seek justice and accountability, if you were sexually abused or assaulted as a child, you are wise to seek legal counsel now.

You can arrange an appointment with an experienced, dedicated Oakland sexual abuse lawyer right now by calling The Doan Law Firm at (510) 925-0000. 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.

40-Year Statute of Limitations for a Victim 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 Oakland sexual abuse attorney can answer any questions you might have about this new law and pursuing a California claim for compensation for sexual assault.

Hold All Parties Responsible

An important element of a California sexual abuse claim is to ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable. In many cases, beyond the actual perpetrator of sexual abuse, other parties may also be responsible. For example, in a school or academic setting, the administration may also be deemed responsible for incidents involving child sexual abuse. In a church, the church hierarchy may also be considered liable for the sexual abuse perpetrated upon a child.

A seasoned, skilled Oakland sexual abuse lawyer is in the best possible position to ensure that all responsible parties are brought to justice and accountability. This is an element of a California sexual abuse claim that necessitates the assistance of an experienced attorney.
