Claims against Local Authorities

Not all children enjoy a happy upbringing. Difficult family circumstances can lead to a child being placed in care.  Whilst some care homes provide an excellent service, others have been targeted by abusers who have used their position of trust within the home to gain access to victims.  Often children from broken homes are vulnerable and may be susceptible to sexual abuse in care homes.  A child who has already suffered the trauma of being placed in care, may then go on to be sexually abused.  

At robsonshaw, our solicitors have successfully brought claims against a number of well known children’s homes and secured compensation for child abuse victims.  We have valuable experience of the care system and the levels of care that should be expected.  Sam has successfully represented victims of the notorious Wrexham based children’s home, Bryn Estyn and fully appreciates the suffering that was caused to some of the children who were placed there.
