Find Out If You Qualify
The Pennsylvania State Attorney General recently issued a 900-page Grand Jury report alleging abuse of more than 1,000 children by over 300 priests since 1950.  

Nationwide, at least 17,000 children have reported abuse or molestation at the hands of church officials in that time. And, the number of unreported cases could be much higher. 

Investigators have accused senior church officials of covering up complaints, protecting abusive priests and coercing victims into silence. And, although they’ve fought to limit the amount of time victims have to file claims, the church has now paid out more than $3 billion to those affected. 

Those who suffered abuse or molestation have legal rights and can seek compensation. If you or a loved one were among the thousands of victims, you may qualify.
