Your Driven Juvenile Abuse Lawyers

Juvenile detention centres, including other detention-like environments such as immigration, psychiatric and disability services, were created as places of care and rehabilitation for young vulnerable children and adolescents. However, sadly, there have been numerous well-documented allegations of abuse in these centres over the years in Australia, some of which have only recently come to light.

Youth in detention centres are particularly vulnerable due to their age and isolation. Our experienced juvenile abuse lawyers see many different forms of abuse in the juvenile justice system, from sexual abuse to emotional and physical abuse as well as neglect. From the use of excessive force, restraints, or isolation, to unwanted sexual advances and grooming, as well as verbal abuse, intimidation and a failure to provide adequate care, many feel that there are ongoing systemic failures in Australian juvenile detention centres.

While several states and territories have adopted various policies and procedures to prevent abuse in juvenile detention centres and other detention-like centres, and improve the care of minors, allegations continue to come to light. If you or someone you know has experienced abuse in juvenile detention centres, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. An abuse lawyer can help seek compensation and justice for any abuse suffered, including if it occurred in the past.

How Can A Juvenile Lawyer Help Me?

Abuse in juvenile detention centres can have a significant long-lasting impact on survivors, especially on developing children. The impacts of abuse can carry on into later life, leading to medical expenses, ongoing struggles with mental health time off school, instability in the workforce, and ongoing issues with trust and authority. Abuse can also have a detrimental impact on a young person’s quality of life and result in significant emotional distress for the survivor’s family.

We are hopeful that, as more perpetrators are held accountable for their actions as well as responsible institutions, we will see a decrease in the reports of abuse coming from the juvenile detention system – and elsewhere. The legal and claims process can be distressing, especially if the survivor is still imprisoned, but it can also form a critical role in the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
