2006 my 8 Children legally kidnapped by DCFS LA County Fabricated Falsified evidence civil rights violated. 3 children ran away by 14 years old due to abuse in Foster care and 4 daughter's adopted out and abused by multiple foster families
Including but not limited to their adoptive families. Reunited with my 2 of my 4 daughters 3 weeks ago after 11 years, (ages 15 & 16) they have informed me of physical abuse while in Foster care placed into 25 foster homes as a result of it. Have proof
The children have until they turn 20 years of age.
You have 2 years from the date of the injury, or when you discovered or should have discovered the injuries.
However, you should not delay filing. Elapsed time can have a negative impact on any lawsuit.
Short answer: Each child, ideally while still a minor, should be individually assessed to see if there is a possible government tort claim, and/or independent injury claim or claims that might be filed in their behalf. As attorney Davis indicates - the claim cut off date mat extend to their 20th birthday.
I hope this helps.
