If a foster parent or sibling abused you, contact an attorney for assistance going up against the perpetrator in a civil claim. You may also have grounds to name the larger foster institution as a defendant. If the foster system should have done more to prevent abuse by a foster family, it could be partially liable for your damages. Working with our law firm can help you identify all possible defendants.
