November 16, 2020 is the deadline to file a claim to hold the Boy Scouts accountable for your abuse.

If you are a victim of Boy Scout Abuse, do not wait. Contact Hurley McKenna & Mertz today.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) filed for bankruptcy in February 2020 amid thousands of sexual abuse claims against the organization. The filing was an attempt to minimize the negative financial impact resulting from their widespread cover up of decades of sexual abuse within their ranks.

Victims of Boy Scout abuse have until November 16, 2020 to file a claim for compensation, after which, they will be barred from ever coming forward again.

The experts at Hurley McKenna & Mertz represent more than 3,400 former Boy Scouts who are victims of sexual abuse, and secured the largest single perpetrator settlement in the history of the BSA.

We’re here to simplify the process of filing a claim against the Boy Scouts of America. If you or a loved one are a victim of scouting abuse, you must act fast to meet the claims deadline. Contact us today, or call or text us at 312.553.4900 to learn more.
