The Child Victims Act in New York was recently signed into law and gives survivors of child sexual abuse an opportunity for justice against their attackers. Even with this new law being passed, there is still a small window to file your case.
Full Investigation Into Dr. Archibald of Rockefeller University Hospital
Dr. Reginald Archibald held himself as a renowned expert in pediatric endocrinology. For almost 30 years, parents throughout the United States brought their children to him for specialized treatment from the late 1940s through the early 1980s.
As a physician and professor at Rockefeller University Hospital, Dr. Archibald told parents that he could help young men of small stature by examining and treating them. Once in the examining room, however, Dr. Archibald engaged in horrific behavior and sexual abuse. Former patients have said that in addition to being abused, he would photograph them naked for what he said was scientific research. Archibald died in 2007.

What Constitutes Abuse or Inappropriate Examination?

- Derogatory, sexual or racist comments

Rockefeller University Hospital Acknowledges Dr. Archibald’s History Of Abuse
Shockingly, in the first statement, Rockefeller University Hospital admitted that it learned about Dr. Archibald’s systemic abuse of its young and vulnerable patients in 2004 but waited 14 years to begin to contact survivors.
And when Rockefeller University Hospital finally started to contact survivors in October 2018, it only acknowledged that “some” of Dr. Archibald’s “behaviors” were “inappropriate.” Nor has Rockefeller University Hospital provided information to survivors about whether their medical files contain photographs that may constitute child pornography or whether it may have knowledge of such photographs existing elsewhere.
Now that the Child Victims Act has passed in New York, patients who were sexually abused by Dr. Archibald at Rockefeller University Hospital can seek justice and financial compensation.
We’re Here to Help.
Pursuing a sexual abuse on your own can be very challenging. The problem comes when institutions with power are more concerned about their own legal protection and bottom line than patient safety. When at a doctor’s office, patients should have a reasonable expectation of safety. When that trust is broken, victims have a right to pursue justice and compensation.
You’ll need experienced attorneys on your side who have gone up against large institutions and won. Contact us today for a confidential case evaluation.
