Children and vulnerable adults can rely on and be heavily involved with public authority services. For example, this could be social services taking a child into care, or failing to take a child into care, a decision by a health authority to provide or withdraw medical treatment, or schooling. At MSB, our experts are able to act in cases against such public authorities where there may have been abuse in school, neglect by a council of a child in care or a failure to provide for their needs.
MSB has in-depth knowledge in all matters relating to children and vulnerable adults. It is vital to identify quickly whether the client is able to provide instructions or whether a Litigation Friend needs to be appointed. Based on our experience, we will be able to identify breaches of statutory duty and/or negligence to provide the best possible advice and plan of action.
