ALBANY, N.Y., Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay, the premier pre-settlement lawsuit funding source, reports that Governor Cuomo assisted in passing a legislation to extend filing deadlines for sexual abuse survivors in the state of New York (A.8401-C/S.8977).
The new legislation, also known as The Sexual Assault Victim Bill of Rights, provides survivors with information regarding their care and treatment, affords them health care services at no cost, and allows them to receive updates regarding any DNA test results, evidence kits, and status of their case. Notifying victims of their legal rights will help ensure survivors receive the information they need to navigate complicated medical and criminal justice systems.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay says, "The new law in NY is long overdue and was highly contested by the Catholic Church for years. We applaud NY for finally getting this done to protect all victims of past sexual abuses – and holding predators accountable both criminally and civilly."
The law will take effect this summer and will enable sexual abuse victims to file criminal charges until they reach age 28 and civil cases until age 55. Because of this landmark decision, Legal-Bay predicts an influx of new filings into NY courts by the end of 2019.
Legal-Bay has been a leader in assisting victims of sexual abuse get the pre settlement funding they need while they fight their cases. Legal-Bay estimates over a million adolescents have been subject to sexual abuse in the last 30 years.
Legal-Bay's funding programs include car and truck accidents, slip and fall cases, medical malpractice, construction accidents, wrongful termination and discrimination cases, and all other personal injury cases. Their pre settlement programs are non-recourse, no-risk lawsuit cash advances, also known as case funding. None of the programs should be considered to be a settlement loan, settlement loans, lawsuit loan, lawsuit loans, pre-settlement loans, or a pre-settlement loan, as the money does not need to be paid back if you ultimately lose your case.
