NEW YORK, March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, has filed a lawsuit in Erie County Supreme Court (803432/2020), alleging that from approximately 1990-1991, plaintiff, then a minor, was repeatedly sexually abused while a resident at The Gow School. Throughout the period in which the abuse occurred, Defendant was generally negligent, it negligently employed and retained employees and/or agents who sexually abused minor residents and gave them access to children. In addition to being abused by Defendant's employees and/or agents, this lawsuit arises out of Plaintiff's significant damages from that sexual abuse.
Multiple Survivors of The Gow School have contacted Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, alleging sexual assault at The Gow School, a school for students with learning disabilities. Many sexual assault survivors are afraid to come forward for fear of not being believed or being blamed for what happened to them. Many times, when the sexual assault survivors finally came forward to share their truth, the statute of limitations would have already expired. New York's Child Victims Act, signed into law last year, now allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse, like these children, the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable.
This lawsuit was filed under New York's Child Victims Act which allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse, like this child, the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable. Prior to the enactment of the Child Victims Act last year, the statute of limitations would have already expired for this child sexual abuse victim. Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP has filed a lawsuit against The Gow School on behalf of this adult survivor of child sexual abuse.
