Compensation Claims for Social Work Negligence
If you are a victim of abuse this can be exceptionally traumatic, and this is made a lot worse if you are then failed by social services. You will be able to make a claim for compensation if this has happened to you or someone that you love.
You can still make a claim no matter if the abuse or negligence took place recently or a long time ago e.g. when you were a child.
Two common areas where claims are made against social services, are as follows –
• Acting when it isn’t warranted for example, accusing someone of child abuse and taking a child away when the abuse never actually took place.
• Failing to act when it was required, such as failing to pick up on and act on evident signs of abuse.
For cases of missed abuse this can result in death or serious injuries whereas cases of being wrongly accused can cause substantial emotional trauma and lead to a parent losing access to their child for many years.More about us
