Palm Beach County Child Abuse Attorneys
Children are our country's most precious asset yet thousands are left at risk every day, some of them at the hands of the very institutions and government agencies charged with protecting them. It is a core mission of the attorneys at the law firm of Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche to bring lawsuits against the parties that, through their actions or inaction, allow these children to be placed in harm's way.
If you are a victim of abuse or neglect, or if you are aware of a child who is, we are ready to help. Our attorneys are deeply committed to fighting for the rights of Florida's children, and doing whatever it takes to ensure that they receive the protection they are entitled to under the law. We have been involved in countless cases involving foster children, mentally handicapped children and others who have been the victims of any kind of abuse.
Our experience and expertise in this area of law puts us in a strong position to effectively handle cases involving injuries to children. We fight to see that the negligent parties are held accountable for the harm that has taken place and seek maximum compensation on the children's behalf.
Fighting to Secure a Better Future for the Children
One of the main focuses of our children's rights practice is to give a voice to at-risk children who would otherwise not have a voice in the legal system. We strive to bring about fundamental change in the way children are treated by institutions and governmental agencies. Our firm was involved in the foster care class action, Bonnie L. v. Bush, which challenged the conditions in the Florida child welfare system. Attorney Ted Babbitt is on the board of directors of Florida's Children First, an organization dedicated to children's rights issues.
We have experience with all types of children's rights cases, including:
- Child abuse, including physical and sexual abuse
- Child abandonment and neglect
- Department of Children and Families (DCF) matters
- Foster children's rights
- The rights of handicapped or disabled children
