If you are a victim of sexual abuse, whether in Pennsylvania, or any other state, contact the law office of Joseph Nypaver as soon as possible. It is important that you act quickly, before memories fade and legal problems with the statute of limitations occur.

Sexual Abuse Cases and the Statute of Limitations

Pennsylvania's law dealing with sexual abuse enacted in 2002, will help more recent victims of abuse get justice and compensation. The statute of limitations law in Pennsylvania for adults who were victims of child abuse has been strictly upheld by the Courts. More mature adults may therefore find that their case is barred because they waited too long to file their claim. Other states, however, have a taken a more enlightened view towards the sexual abuse of children and  permit older claims, otherwise time barred, to go forward.
