Child Abuse / Group Home Neglect

Victims of sexual abuse often live for years with shame, helplessness and denial. Remarkably, organizations where abuses occur often respond with concern about the organization’s legal exposure and/or loss of reputation or prestige, rather than concern for the victimized child. Frequently, organizations fail to report abuse to relevant law enforcement agencies, fail to properly investigate allegations of abuse, fail to protect children and fail to provide counseling and restitution to the abused child. Children who are in the custody of institutional caretakers, whether they are group homes, foster care or any other out of the home care provider, are twice as likely to be sexual or physically abused than are children of the home. The failure to protect children from the known, increased risk of physical and sexual abuse may give rise to liability for institutional caretakers for the injuries suffered by children in their care. Our firm has successfully represented children in these types of cases. In many cases, monetary damages are paid and changes are implemented to end abuse. For additional information regarding representation for abuse, please contact me.
