Nationwide Leaders in Sex Abuse Litigation

Levy Konigsberg has cultivated a reputation of success representing sexual abuse survivors in civil lawsuits. Unlike criminal cases against alleged abusers, the civil sexual abuse lawsuits we handle focus on recovering justice and compensation for victims, while also holding both abusers and the negligent institutions, entities, and employers who failed to stop the abuse accountable.

Some of our recent work and coverage in this field:

  • In November 2022, our firm filed lawsuits on behalf of numerous former female inmates who were sexually abused by prison staff at the Bayview Correctional Facility. The recently filed Bayview sex abuse lawsuits were brought under the NY Adult Survivors Act, which creates a temporary one-year lookback window for victims abused as adults to file claims, regardless of when their abuse occurred.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Sexual Abuse Lawsuits in Connecticut?

Connecticut has been a leader in revising the civil statute of limitations – or the deadline by which Plaintiffs must file suit to be eligible for a recovery of damages – in cases involving sexual abuse.

The statute of limitations for bringing a sexual abuse lawsuit in Connecticut will depend on the specific facts of a case, including the age of the victim and even the criminal guilt of the alleged abuser.

  • Claims involving convicted abusers. Thanks to an amendment made effective in 2022, Connecticut has no statute of limitations for civil actions brought against alleged abusers who have been convicted of 1st degree sexual assault or 1st degree aggravated sexual assault. (Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 926 § 52-577e).
  • Abuse claims involving victims 21 or younger. In Connecticut, victims who were sexually abused under 21 years of age can file civil claims within 30 years from the date they turn 21. This means child sexual abuse survivors and survivors abused between the ages of 18 and 20 have until the age of 51 to file civil lawsuits. (Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 926 § 52-577d).
  • Abuse claims involving adult victims. Connecticut does not have a specific statute of limitations for sexual abuse lawsuits filed by victims who were abused or assaulted as adults. Instead, adult survivors are subject to the statute of limitations applicable to torts like personal injury. In Connecticut, this is three years from the date of the alleged abuse (Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 926 § 52-577).

Determining how the statute of limitations works can be challenging.
