For children and vulnerable adults placed in institutions, the inference is that a duty of care is placed upon them.
In reality, there are many cases where this trust has been broken within children’s homes, approved schools and more.
The effects of a lack of support and protection for vulnerable individuals can be far-reaching and can lead to physical and mental health problems that span the rest of their lives.
From poorly trained staff to inadequate management, abuses of power to other, malicious actions, institutional abuse is an incredibly important and serious area of the law. As such, seeking justice through a highly trained, professional and dedicated legal firm is the ideal course of action for pursuing claims following institutional abuse.
At Kearney Law Group, our legal team is expertly trained specifically in the field of institutional abuse.
We have many years of experience and knowledge to provide our clients with the best-possible chance of achieving justice. Through our expertise and our commitment to empathetic, client-first services, we provide the best-possible results for our clients.
We fully understand the sombre, sensitive and often delicate nature of institutional abuse cases, as well as our duty to listen to and believe our clients when it comes to these difficult circumstances.
Our experience and our long history of success make us the ideal choice if you are considering an institutional-abuse claim.
With the recent publication of the report by both Queen’s University Belfast and Ulster University into Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries in Northern Ireland 1922 – 1990, and the conclusion of Ireland’s Commission Report, Kearney Law Group is keen to assist victims, who have been horrendously abused in obtaining compensation.
Compensation for mothers will be based on their length of stay at any of the institutions listed in Appendices A and B below. There will also be an additional work related payment for mothers who undertook commercial work.
Children will be eligible if they were in any of these institutions for a period of 6 months or more.
