Our lawyers are proud of the work we have done in Florida on behalf of children and disabled persons who have been sexually abused, physically abused, or molested while under the state's care. Our cases have served not only to compensate the victims of sex abuse but also to protect some of the most vulnerable people in the state from being victimized in the future and improve the child welfare system.
Our lawyers represent children who were sexually and physically abused in foster homes, group homes, Department of Juvenile Justice detention facilities, community-based care, and other settings administered by the state's Department of Children and Families. We also represent disabled children and adults who were sexually abused in group homes and other settings administered by the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD).
While state laws limit government liability in many personal injury lawsuits, our lawyers have successfully filed causes of action on behalf of abused children and disabled persons in federal court under section 1983 of the Federal Civil Rights Act.
Contact us to schedule a consultation. All of our cases are handled on a contingency basis so you owe us nothing unless we obtain compensation.
Our firm also represents children who are sexually molested and physically abused in schools, churches, day care centers, institutional group homes, residential treatment facilities, and other private sector settings.
If you are aware of a child or disabled person who has been sexually abused, physically abused, or molested, please contact our lawyers as soon as possible. Strict statutes of limitations apply to filing causes of action against the state or other parties that are negligent in supervising contacts between adults and children.
We handle all sexual and physical abuse cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you pay no attorney fees unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.
Our lawyers serve clients in northern Florida and southern Georgia, including Jacksonville, Daytona, Orlando, Pensacola, Savannah, Brunswick and Augusta. We handle aviation accident cases throughout the southeastern United States and internationally, including South America.
