If an agency, institution or person takes responsibility for a child, they must keep the child safe and protect the child from harm others might cause. This is especially true for state child welfare agencies, like the Oregon Department of Human Services and the Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Families. When those agencies fail to do their jobs, kids suffer.
With over 40 years of trial experience and unique experience involving state institutions, David L. Kramer, P.C., can give you a distinct advantage.
When Child Welfare or Child Protective Services is Involved
We hold public and private institutions accountable when their employees abuse or neglect children, or when they fail to prevent children from being abused or neglected.
- A foster home abused or neglected kids after the state negligently allowed it to operate.
- A report of child abuse and neglect was poorly investigated and child victimization continued.
- A foster child intentionally hurt or abused another person, including other foster kids.
