Abolish The Statue Of Limitation For Victims Of Childhood Sexual Abuse

By |2020-02-18T20:14:17+00:00February 28th, 2014|Injuries|0 Comments

There is pending legislation in Pennsylvania that will abolish the statute of limitations for victims of childhood sexual abuse. This legislation is necessary because many victims of childhood sexual abuse do not come forward until many years later, and sometimes decades after the abuse. This bill would also introduce a two-year time period during which survivors of childhood sexual abuse, whose claims were already time-barred, could come forward and file a civil suit against their abusers or any entity that allowed the abuse to occur. Several other states, including California have passed statutes that included this so-called “look back” provision, which led to numerous suits being filed against the Catholic Church. Unfortunately, as a result of what occurred in California, the Catholic Church has been lobbying against this bill by stating that it is a “money-grab” and “evidence of anti-Catholic bias.” As of now, the bill has not been passed or even voted on. There is always a hope that this bill will pass, and victims who have been shut out of the courthouse will finally be able to seek justice for their abuse.

Ben and Nate are great guys. They walked me through the whole process, from beginning til the end. The receptionist and very nice. Answer all my questions and concerns. I will refer them to anyone. Their not like other lawyers that talk around the topic. They tell you just how it is or how they believe it will be. Thank you guys so much.

Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!

Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.

When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it's hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn't offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
