Minnesota Foster Care Abuse Lawyers
The personal injury attorneys at Hall Law have more than 35 years of experience representing people who have injured or killed because of another’s negligence. We understand the issues in representing clients with claims against foster-care facilities.
All too often in Minnesota foster children are placed in homes or care facilities where they suffer horrible abuse and neglect. Defenseless children have suffered severe injuries and even death while supposedly under the care and protection of the foster care system. These children deserve our protection. Having been removed from their homes and communities, they are often helpless to protect themselves.
Foster families receive compensation from the government to “take care” of children in need. Those families charged with the care and protection of such vulnerable children, are often the source of horrendous abuse. The abuse is usually inflicted by foster parents and family members, or other foster children in the household. Those individuals who take advantage of foster children by collecting government fees, and then fail to protect such children from abuse can be held accountable.
The foster families themselves are not the only parties to blame in the foster care abuse problem. All too often foster children are placed in homes that should have been identified as an abusive home. In certain situations, a placement agency may be held responsible for negligently placing foster children into environments which are known to be dangerous.
