Extended Deadline to File a Sacramento Sexual Abuse Lawsuit
California law recently changed to permit a person more time to bring certain types of sexual abuse lawsuits. For example, if you were the target of sexual abuse as a child, California law now allows you until your 40th birthday to file a lawsuit against a perpetrator of sexual abuse and any other parties that may be deemed responsible for this wrongdoing. Technically, this is an expansion of what is known as the statute of limitations.
Three-Year Window Open to Sexual Abuse Survivors of Any Age to Sue
California law also changed to allow adults to take legal action and seek justice in a case involving their sexual abuse as a child. 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. This window is open no matter how long ago the incident occurred.
Bear in mind that if you are thinking about pursuing accountability through this law, your time is running out. You should be as proactive as possible to ensure your rights are protected and schedule a confidential appointment with a Sacramento sexual abuse attorney by calling (916) 507-0000.
Sexual Abuse: You are Not Alone
If you are a Sacramento sexual abuse survivor, you are not alone. More than 50 percent of all women report being the target of sexual abuse or sexual violence during the course of their lifetimes. Almost 25 percent of all men indicate that they have been the targets of sexual abuse or sexual violence during their lives.
33 percent of women report that they were the target of completed or attempted rape at some juncture in time between the ages of 11 and 17. Over 730,000 people in the United States report being raped or threatened with rape during the course of any given year. It is estimated that a considerable number of rape survivors do not report their experiences to law enforcement.
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center reports that the lifetime costs of being a survivor of rape is over $120,000. This includes everything from lost wages to medical expenses (including for therapy). Part of obtaining justice and accountability as a survivor of sexual assault is obtaining suitable compensation for injuries, damages, and losses of all types.
