How do I know if I have a claim?
If you were touched inappropriately by Dr. Nassar, you should contact a lawyer immediately so it can be assessed.
If I have not come forward yet, is it too late?
Absolutely not. MSU has put aside money in a fund for people who come forward who have not yet done so. You should not wait though, as this fund will not stay open forever and your opportunity to get help and financial assistance may be limited.
What is the time period to pursue a claim for monetary damages?
The time periods vary widely based on when and where it happened, but MSU appears to be considering these cases regardless of the limitations periods.
Will I need to file a lawsuit or go to trial?
Very unlikely. The fund is designed to compensate victims without litigation or a trial.
Can I remain anonymous?
You can receive financial assistance without filing any public documents.
What is the deadline to file a claim?
Claim filing deadline is September 1st, 2018, but the best thing you can do if you want to try to get financial assistance is to pursue it now. There are many risks to waiting and for many people, this is the only chance they will have to get the help they need and civil justice against Nassar and MSU.
