Children placed in foster care by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (“DSHS”) are especially vulnerable to abuse. Many have come from homes and situations where abuse is common. When they are transitioned into foster care and abuse continues, they may believe that abuse is the norm. They may also be unable to protect themselves.
This is Unacceptable
As Washington foster abuse lawyers, we represent children throughout Washington State who have been abused by the negligent placement of DSHS with unfit foster parents and in dangerous living environments, and for the failure of these agencies to adequately monitor children to ensure that abuse and neglect is not occurring.
See “Types of Foster Care Abuse.”
The abuse that we have seen is horrific. Starvation. Broken bones, physical injuries caused from punching, kicking, and slapping. Burns. Severe psychological trauma from mental abuse and from conditions such as being locked away. Rape and sexual abuse.
It’s difficult to imagine adults inflicting such horrible damage on innocent children. The psychological pain caused by abuse at the hands of foster parents can last a lifetime.
This should never happen. Unfortunately, when DSHS fails to properly fulfill its duties, our children pay the price. The only way to recover for these children and to send a strong message to those in charge is through the courts.
