The foster care system allows children whose biological parents are unable to care for them to benefit from care and protection from other adults. While most foster care parents are compassionate, supportive, and provide adequate care for their children, situations of abuse or neglect are not infrequent. In such cases, foster children have the same rights as any others.
Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C offers compassionate legal services for parents who believe their children have been victims of abuse and neglect and adults who were abused in their youth. The firm has had successfully represented past victims of child sexual abuse in the foster care system, places of worship, schools, universities and other institutions.
The recent service update follows the recent bill to raise the statute of limitations in cases of child abuse, called the Child Victims Act, which was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo on February 14, 2019. According to the Manhattan law firm, “any individual who was the victim of sexual abuse or assault when they were younger than 18 will have a period of 1 year and 6 months to resurrect their otherwise expired claim.”
The Manhattan attorneys undertake an extensive investigation to determine whether the private or government agency who mediated the placement of the child is responsible for the abuse, and ensure that they are held responsible.
If victims have an actionable case, the Manhattan legal experts will help them file a case against the agency, university, place of worship, the foster parent, or liable party, and benefit from appropriate compensation.
The Manhattan law firm has extensive experience with a variety of foster care abuse cases, including negligence, physical and sexual abuse.
With the recent update, Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C continues to adapt its legal services to the latest legislation updates. In its more than 35 years of experience, the firm has recovered more than $800 million for its clients, having established a strong reputation for professionalism, competence and service quality.
