Child Protective Services Lawsuits

It should come as no surprise that minors who are in the dependency system can bring lawsuits for any injuries or damages they sustain as a result of someone else’s negligent acts, abuse or omissions. The fact that they are in the dependency system should not, and does not, prevent them from seeking redress.

You need a lawyer with experience winning construction accident lawsuits.

These cases become a bit more complicated if the liable party is the county itself. When minors are declared dependents of the juvenile court, the county is given care and custody of them. Their parents often lose legal rights to the children, including the right to bring a lawsuit on their child’s behalf. If the county then fails to protect them from dangerous situations (such as placing them in a home with a known sexual predator), these children still have a constitutional right to seek redress for their harm.
