If you or your child was the victim of sexual abuse as a member of Boy Scouts of America (BSA) or related organizations, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
You can now file a claim for the damages because of the Boy Scouts of America and their systemic efforts to cover up abuse. The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to limit their liability in relation to sexual abuse. In those proceedings, Judge Laurie Silverstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware imposed a deadline of 5 p.m. EST on November 16, 2020. If you do not file a claim by that time, you may be unable to ever file a claim against the organization to obtain compensation for the abuse you suffered.
Individuals who believe they may have a claim should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Call us today to schedule a consultation with a Los Angeles Boy Scouts abuse attorney, call Arash Law Today.

Millions of kids have participated in BSA meetings, jamborees, camps, and other activities. Parents trusted that BSA-sponsored events were safe and were providing their children with life skills such as working with a team, leadership, adaptability, and time management. The sad reality is that many BSA leaders were using their position of authority and access to sexually abuse thousands of young people.
Worst of all, records indicate that Boy Scouts of America knew about the abuse that was occurring and did not take adequate measures to stop it. According to reports, the BSA kept files naming about 8,000 leaders who had been accused of child molestation going back to 1944.
Childhood sexual abuse is one of those events that can completely alter the course of a person’s life. In many cases, people develop serious emotional and psychological issues that can affect them for decades. In many instances, there is no way to cure the damage caused by sexual abuse. The best victims can hope for is learning coping mechanisms to deal with the trauma and psychological damage. Some of the more common health issues that sexual abuse victims experience include:
These are all compensable damages under the eyes of the law, and anyone who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the BSA should speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
If you are considering filing a sexual abuse claim against BSA, it’s highly advisable that you do so with the assistance of an experienced lawyer. To go up against an organization as well-connected and powerful as the Boy Scouts, you need a law firm that has the resources required to handle your claim and get you the compensation you deserve. Some of the ways in which the lawyers of Arash Law can help include:

If you do not obtain compensation from the Boy Scouts, we do not get paid.
As the evidence against the BSA piles up and more and more victims come forward, the organization is taking steps to avoid justice. Specifically, the organization – which has assets of more than $1 billion – has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Once the BSA is in bankruptcy, victims will not be able to file lawsuits against the organization.
By taking this step, the BSA is trying to shield itself from liability to victims of sexual abuse, potentially forcing victims to bring claims directly against BSA leaders. Unfortunately, individuals typically do not have the assets or insurance to cover the massive losses victims suffer. For this reason, if you have a claim, it’s critical to come forward now.
