Was Your Child Sexually Abused in a Group Home?
Group home managers and staff have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their residents. Supervision after hours is paramount to preventing sexual assault and sexual abuse among residents. In many cases, staff members are also guilty of taking advantage of vulnerable adults who do not understand the consequences of their actions.
Group Home Sex Abuse Cases Require Immediate Action
If you believe your child was sexually assaulted or molested at a group home, call the police and talk to an attorney at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain to start a legal investigation into liability on the part of the group home management and staff. Even if your child is of adult age, if you are the legal guardian, you are entitled to pursue legal action on his or her behalf.
