Social Work Negligence Services
Possible to investigate a professional negligence claim against social services
If a child should have been removed by social services and was not removed it's possible to raise a claim for the harm suffered whilst the child was left at home.
Failure to protect claims
Sometime a child is removed but not properly looked after whilst in care.
Claims for abusive and neglectful home circumstances
Sometimes children were not removed as quickly as they should have been and were left living in abusive and neglectful circumstances.
Funding claims generally under no win no fee arrangements
Local government authorities to safeguard the welfare of children in their area require local authorities’ social services departments to intervene and to either assist birth parents or parent with parenting/childcare skills and monitor parenting improvements or ultimately to remove a child into state care.
Investigations on claims can take place in the following situations if social services did not act:
If children are living in an environment without proper access to education and basic life necessities such as regular meals and clean clothing to wear.
If a child suffered harm whilst being left at home.
If a child is removed but not properly looked after whilst in care.
