When sexual abuse occurs at a residential care facility, often the facility can be held liable for the damages suffered by the victims. In some instances, the liability can extend to care received in the victim’s own home at the hands of a residential care facility staff member.

These facilities are entrusted to care for individuals whose families depend on the facilities to provide a safe and healthy environment. When these facilities breach their duty of care, whether through failing to adopt or follow policies to prevent sexual abuse, or through “turning a blind eye” to allegations of sexual abuse, they must be held accountable.
