Boys Scouts of America / Sexual Abuse
The Verus team is working with the best law firms in the nation who are defending claimants of sexual abuse cases including the current BSA bankruptcy proceeding to ensure that the best interest of the survivors of the abuse are at the forefront of our service delivery. Verus can support your firm with the proof of claim submission into the claims administrator and any related services in the Chapter 11 proceeding. Verus is prepared to help law firms represent their victims by addressing some key aspects of this litigation:
Verus receives cases from your case generator/paid marketer or your firm’s internal marketing. We work with the best vendors in the space so we have APIs already in place with most case generators:
- Signed client retainers only
- Case Criteria: The Sexual Abuse Survivor Proof of Claim is only for victims who were sexually abused before turning eighteen (18) years of age and where the sexual abuse occurred on or before February 18, 2020. This Sexual Abuse Survivor Proof of Claim is the way you assert an unsecured claim against BSA seeking damages based on scouting-related sexual abuse.
Our cost structure is a per case allocation for POC submission. Our deliverables include the following:
- Intake data integration via API (volume dependent)
- No API – We can use excel documents or other streamlined reports for uploading baseline case information that integrates into our system
- Verus will schedule a call or interview with trained experts within 48 hours of receiving the case
- Our experts will perform a pre-call review process of intake information, time-zone check, and review of demographic information
- Interview Process – Explain to the victim the Proof of Claim process (POC), with a victim-centered trauma-informed approach in order to begin gathering their story for submission
- Review data for quality purposes (quality control, quality assurance and data mining)
- Upload the POC form for submission to the Claims Administrator
- Send client data or case information back to the law firm in flexible ways
