Boy Scouts of America Sexual Abuse Lawyers

If you or a loved one have suffered sexual abuse by a Boy Scouts of America® (BSA) troop leader, employee, volunteer, or even by another scout at any time in your life, our hearts go out to you. And our lawyers can help you file a Boy Scouts sexual abuse claim for compensation against the BSA now.

But your time to do this is limited. The BSA filed bankruptcy in February, and claimants only have until mid-November to file a claim to try to obtain compensation for the damage caused to them by the organization.

Contact our experienced attorneys at 1-866-900-7078 or by filling out this online form by October 30, and we will provide you with a free confidential evaluation of your case.

Were You Sexually Abused by the Boy Scouts of America®?

If so, you are not alone. There are many other innocent victims who have been sexually abused by the people in the BSA they trusted the most. It’s painful to think that an organization whose mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices could allow this unforgivable sexual abuse to happen to the young people it pledged to serve.

If this happened to you, you still have time to hold the Boys Scouts of America® accountable for failing to protect you. And we are here to help you.

Can Only Boy Scouts File a Claim Against the BSA?

No, if you or a loved one suffered sexual abuse while in an BSA affiliate, such as Cub Scouts, Webelos, Explorers, Sea Scouts, and Venturing, you can also file a claim.

How Can A Lawyer Help Me?

Our experienced attorneys can help you file a claim against the BSA. This includes helping you:

  • Gather the detailed information needed to try to prove your claim
  • Fill out the claim to best represent the harm you endured and the damage caused to you
  • Submit your claim confidentially

Your actions matter. When you stand up for yourself and file a claim, you are striving to hold the BSA accountable for its failure to protect you. And this shows other organizations that they can be held accountable if they put others, especially children, at risk. You, and many other survivors, may be able to recover damages for the emotional pain inflicted by the hands of the BSA people you trusted. And we want to help you.

Can I Afford to File a Claim?

Yes, you can. At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we handle Boy Scout sexual abuse cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we will be only paid an attorney’s fee if your claim is approved and you collect compensation first2.

Will My Claim and Name Be Made Public?

No, we will ensure that your name is kept confidential if that is your wish. We respect you and understand that this is an extremely private matter. We will protect your identity and will not publicly disclose your name when submitting a claim against the BSA.

Does the BSA Filing Bankruptcy Stop Me from Filing a Claim?

No, the BSA bankruptcy filing does not stop you from filing a claim, but it does put a strict deadline on the amount of time you have to do this. As part of these bankruptcy proceedings, the BSA is in the process of creating a $1.5 billion trust to pay claims by abuse survivors.

The deadline for filing a sexual abuse claim against the BSA is November 16, 2020. In order to handle each case with the care and confidentiality it deserves, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin will accept new Boy Scout sexual abuse cases up until October 30, 2020.

Call us immediately at 1-866-900-7078 to discuss your claim. It does not matter where you lived or how long ago the abuse took place. You may be eligible for compensation for your suffering, therapy, or any medical assistance you have needed over the years to cope with the abuse. If the BSA neglected to protect you, now is time to hold them accountable.
