This month we will be looking at questions surrounding the Child Victims Act. It is a true opportunity for justice to people who for many years were denied the right. The abused will now have three years to bring a claim. With a new Act there are always questions that we hope to be able to answer.
It is not unusual for people to have a number of other life experiences since the time of the abuse. There are survivors who have suffered in silence and may have turned to sexual activity, drugs/alcohol, and/or been the subject of criminal charges. This does not prevent you from having a claim. When you contact an experienced priest abuse attorney, you will not be judged. This is an attempt to right past wrongs that you continue to suffer through no fault of your own at a time when you were young and most vulnerable. Experience teaches us to deal with individuals as they were at that time.
Justice can be found by acting now.
Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders needs to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to know that there is help out there.
