A new law in Arkansas provides survivors of childhood sexual abuse a new opportunity to take civil action against an abuser or organization responsible for abuse. This is significant news for child sexual abuse victims whose cases were once considered expired due to state statutes of limitations.
While some aspects of this law will remain permanent, there are parts that are temporary and allow a limited time for legal action. The two-year revival window for filing sexual abuse claims is only open between February 1, 2022 and January 31, 2024. To learn more about this important legislative step, please reach out to an attorney from McMath Woods P.A. who represents survivors of sexual abuse in the state of Arkansas.
