Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I compose a reply for you.
You cannot sue for pain and suffering. You sue for personal injury. When you sue for personal injuries, you can then ask for additional damages to be awarded for the pain and suffering.
Unfortunately, there is a statute of limitations on civil personal injury suits. It is two years, and the time starts running from the time of the molestation and abuse. So you are at this point time barred from being able to sue civilly.
I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
