Children Abused In Foster Care

Bronx Child Neglect Lawyers Representing Children Harmed While In Foster Care

Children living in foster care have already been through the trauma of being taken away from their families. Sadly, they too often suffer additional harm while living with their foster parents.

The attorneys of Getz & Braverman, P.C., stand up for the rights of children who have suffered abuse or mistreatment while living in foster care. We will seek financial compensation from those who harmed your child and those who allowed it happen.

Private or government agencies are required to protect children in foster care by screening and overseeing the people who serve as foster parents. When the agencies fail in their duties and children are harmed because of this negligence, our lawyers will take legal action against the agency.

Types Of Foster Care Abuse

We have successfully resolved numerous cases on behalf of children who suffered many different types of abuse or neglect while in foster case. One involved an infant who was horribly abused for two years. Cases often involve:

  • Physical abuse, including abuse that causes broken bones, swollen skulls, crossed eyes or shaken baby syndrome
  • Sexual abuse by the foster parents, members of the household or other caretakers
  • Negligence, including failure to provide adequate food, water and medical care

If your child was abused or neglected in foster care, please contact Getz & Braverman, P.C. We will listen to you and tell you how we can help. If you have an actionable case, we will file a lawsuit against the foster parent or the agency that was charged with keeping your child safe.
