Phoenix Group Home Abuse Attorneys

Seeking Compensation for Mistreatment of the Developmentally Disabled

The decision to place a developmentally disabled family member in a group home is a difficult one. Ideally, these homes should be relied upon to provide the highest level of care and attention. Unfortunately, some group homes fall short, resulting in serious injuries or death to residents.

At Feder Law Office, P.A., our Phoenix group home abuse lawyers help victims and their families pursue fair compensation from group home operators and the state agencies that are supposed to supervise them.

Holding Providers and the State Accountable for Negligent Care

Children and adults with conditions like cognitive disabilities, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and autism are highly vulnerable to injury if they are placed in group homes that do not provide appropriate care and protection. Common causes of group home injuries include the following:

  • Choking hazards
  • Inappropriate placements resulting in violence between residents
  • Inadequate supervision resulting in residents injuring themselves
  • Medication errors and overmedication
  • Physical and sexual abuse by staff members

In Arizona, group homes for the developmentally disabled are run by private entities licensed by the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities. Despite the involvement of private providers, the state is ultimately responsible for the care and safety of group home residents.

If your loved one has been injured or killed as a result of abuse or neglect at a group home, our attorneys may be able to help you hold both the provider and the state accountable. If you wish to discuss your case, please contact us to schedule a free consultation.
