Maryland Statute of Limitations on Child Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Maryland has lifted the statute of limitations on some child sex abuse civil lawsuits, but not all. Legislation currently moving through the lawmaking process will completely remove the statute of limitations for child sex abuse, even if the abuse occurred many decades ago. The governor has said that the bill will be signed into law as soon as it passes the House of Delegates, so it is assumed this law will be enacted soon.

With Maryland Child Victims Act of 2023:

  • People who were abused as children or minors will be allowed to file a civil lawsuit against their abusers, even if previous statutes of limitations would have barred them from filing.
  • Plaintiffs would be able to make up to $1.5 million in non-economic damages when filing against a private institution, but there will be no caps on economic or punitive damages. Significant compensation is also available from government entities including the public school system.

Compensation for Sexual Abuse Claimants in Maryland

In a sexual abuse lawsuit filed in Maryland, you can demand compensation for the many types of harm that the sexual abuse has caused you to suffer throughout the years. Recoverable damages include the trauma that the attack caused, which might have followed you, even after years of therapy. This type of damage is non-economic damage, but economic damage related to medical costs and financial losses could be available, too.

As mentioned, you might also be awarded punitive damages, even though this is rare. Punitive damage is not meant to compensate you for a loss. Instead, it punishes the defendant for egregious wrongdoing. For example, a judge might approve punitive damages against a religious institution that knowingly harbored sex offenders who were abusing children.

Filing Against Powerful Institutions

If or when the Maryland Child Victims Act of 2023 passes, you should take prompt action to see if you can file a claim against the institution that enabled or harbored a sexual abuser or that failed to protect you from them. The statute of limitations will be lifted, so you can seek justice for abuses that happened decades ago.
