Complaints and Claims Against the Local Authority
Farleys also act for young children who are, or have been, in the care of the local authority and have been subject to failings by them. This may be in relation to claims for Criminal Injuries Compensation which have not been submitted by the local authority or for claims of negligence against the local authority for their failure to protect or care adequately for the children. Farleys act closely with the Official Solicitor in these matters where the child is under the age of 18.
