Child Sex Abuse Claims: Statutes of Limitations & Claim Revival Laws
Child sex abuse has devastating, life-long consequences for victims. Unfortunately, the nature and full extent of the psychological damage and other injuries often is not known until years -- sometimes decades -- later. By then, claims for recovery are likely to be barred by a statute of limitations.

Recognizing this, states have been enacting statute of limitations reform laws. Some of these eliminate the limitations period for these kinds of claims. Others lengthen the time period. Still others alter accrual rules or add a new "discovery" tolling rule. Some states have even enacted laws that effectively revive claims that are barred by the terms of a previous statute of limitations.

There has been a flurry of new enactments in this area in 2020 and 2021.

This course explains how statutes of limitations, accrual, tolling, "discovery" rules, and revival laws work in this area, and the differences in state laws. It also provides updated information on the latest enactments and legal developments.
