The Boy Scouts of America recently filed for bankruptcy amidst a growing number of sexual abuse allegations against the non-profit. What does that mean for you? As part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy bid, BSA has expressed the intention of creating a Victim’s Compensation Fund to provide compensation to those who experienced abuse while a part of the organization.
Newsome Melton is proud to join the #ScoutsHonor movement and represent those who have suffered sexual abuse in their fight for compensation and justice. We have recovered more than half a billion dollars in compensation for our clients and would love to work on your case. Call today!
Though this may seem like it will diminish the victims’ ability to get compensation, the filing is not necessarily bad news. With statutes changed in several states, men who were abused as much as 30 years ago now have recourse to monetary compensation and a formal apology from the Scouts.
Guaranteed Compensation: as a victim, you will have access to the proposed compensation fund.
Speed: a single bankruptcy case will progress much more quickly than myriad trials, leading to swifter justice that has been coming, for some victims, for several decades.
Our relationships with clients don’t just soothe feelings. They win cases. By working closely with our clients, and regularly meeting with them, we learn more about the events and circumstances that changed their lives. We pick up on seemingly small details that, in the end, often make all the difference.
I am so pleased to have worked with this firm. The attention to detail, time spent one on one, not feeling like I was just a number and someone truly caring about what was going on with me and my case was more than I could have ever hoped for. I will use this firm again if I ever need one and will recommend to everyone who asks to reach out to Newsome Melton if they find they ever need someone to represent them. More than pleased and happy with everyone and everything from the office. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
It takes courage to seek justice from a national organization like Boy Scouts of America. At Newsome Melton, we want to help you in your battle for recognition and compensation.
