More Opportunities for Justice for Illinois Catholic Priest Clergy Abuse Victims

The state of Illinois has been grappling with the shocking revelation of widespread sexual abuse by Catholic priests and clergy members—the Attorney General's investigation found that over 450 clergy in Illinois sexually abused nearly 2,000 children since 1950.

The extent of the problem is far worse than previously reported by the church, and many victims are now seeking justice and potential compensation for the harm they’ve suffered.

However, there are opportunities for abuse victims to seek justice—starting with the reduction of the statute of limitations in Illinois—and a skilled attorney can help make a difference in the fight for compensation.

In 2014, the Illinois statute of limitations was eliminated for child sex abuse claims regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred.

Even if the abuser is deceased, victims may be able to file a claim against the responsible organization, such as a church, synagogue, mosque, or other faith organization.

This replaced an earlier law that only gave childhood sexual abuse survivors 20 years after they reached age 18—or, five years after they discovered that sexual abuse occurred and caused their injuries—to file a claim against their abuser.

We believe Illinois catholic priest clergy abuse victims and their families deserve justice and potential compensation—starting with a free, private case review with our legal team to learn more about the legal process and the potential value of a claim.
