When the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal first came into the public eye in the late 1980s, the world was shocked and disturbed to learn of the countless children who were sexually abused by their most trusted confidants: local priests and clergy members.
Mishandling of Sexual Abuse Cases in the Catholic Church
For years the Catholic Church has terribly mishandled these sexual abuse cases. From blatant denial to shrewd cover-ups, the Church has enabled the suffering of blameless children, causing them to be left with physical, psychological, and emotional scars. Now, Reich and Binstock is making it their mission to seek justice for these victims and ensure they receive the compensation from the Church that they deserve.
Waived Statute of Limitations for Sexual Abuse Victims
Though numerous individuals endured their abuse decades ago, many states have chosen to waive their statute of limitations for these claims. New York, New Jersey, California, and Pennsylvania have already done so. Reich and Binstock is hopeful that other states will make the right decision and do so as well because all victims of abuse are entitled to justice regardless of how long ago it occurred.
Many dioceses have set up funds so that the survivors of abuse can receive payment for the harm they have suffered, rather than battling out these painful allegations in the courtroom. To make this process as easy as possible, Reich and Binstock is helping victims in the process of privately filing the necessary paper work to secure a monetary settlement they so rightly deserve.
Our hope is that by ensuring victims receive payment for their abuse, they finally receive acknowledgment of their abuse from the Church and can now rest in truth.
