Child Sex Abuse Settlement Timeline
In this video, our experienced Buffalo attorney discusses the child sex abuse settlement timeline and how long a case may take.
How long will a child sexual abuse case take?
Under the new Child Victims Act, the courts have indicated to us as attorneys that they’re going to speed up the discovery process to try to get these cases on the trial calendar within a year or two, which is a pretty aggressive strategy, so, hopefully, many of these cases can get resolved within the first year or two of the filing. Some cases may not be filed right away because we have to do more investigation, but the hope is to try to resolve most of these cases resolved within a year or two of their filing.
