New York Adult Survivors Act 

Empowering Survivors with the New York Adult 
Survivors Act

The New York Adult Survivors Act (ASA) is a groundbreaking piece of legislation designed to provide justice for adult survivors of sexual abuse, assault, and other related crimes. At Salenger, Sack, Kimmel & Bavaro, LLP, we are committed to advocating for the rights of these survivors, ensuring they have the legal support necessary to pursue justice and hold their abusers accountable.

Revival Window

A critical component of the ASA is the revival window, which allows survivors to file lawsuits against their abusers and the institutions that enabled the abuse, regardless of when the abuse occurred. This one-year revival window began on November 24, 2022, giving survivors a unique opportunity to seek justice even if their cases were previously time-barred.

Extended Statute of Limitations

The ASA extends the statute of limitations for civil actions related to adult sexual abuse:

  • Civil Lawsuits: Survivors now have until 20 years after the abuse to file a civil lawsuit against their abuser or negligent institution. This extension acknowledges the time it can take for survivors to come forward and take legal action.

Broader Scope of Accountability

The ASA not only targets individual abusers but also holds institutions accountable for their role in enabling or covering up sexual abuse. This broader scope ensures that systemic issues are addressed and that survivors receive comprehensive justice.
