I Was Abused As A Child, Can I Still File A Claim?
The Statute of Limitations is the maximum amount of time an individual has to file a legal claim. This amount of time varies greatly in Washington depending on the type of case.
More on the Statute of Limitations
Because it could take years for a survivor of sexual abuse to discover that their injuries (both physical and emotional) are connected to their abuse, these cases require careful consideration.
Due to this, we believe sexual abuse cases should be permitted to be tried by a jury whenever possible.
Anytime you have been abused and injured by another person or an institution fails to protect you from harm, it is important to know when you must exercise your rights.
Our attorneys have successfully recovered for survivors of childhood sexual abuse in Washington well after the abuse occurred or into adulthood.
