Victimized at a Devereux Foundation Facility? You May Qualify for Compensation. If you or someone in your family was a patient at a Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health facility, you may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of personal injury. Victims of abuse at the hands of employees or fellow residents at any one of the Devereux Foundation's centers are being asked to contact the personal injury lawyers at Console and Associates, P.C., in order to assess your right to sue for damages. The firm is launching lawsuit investigations into reports of physical and sexual abuse at a number of Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health centers. The announcement comes after new Pennsylvania state legislation which allows child victims of abuse that occurred after November 2019 the right to pursue civil legal action (a lawsuit) until age 55, and young adults victimized between the ages of 18 and 23 the right to pursue action until age 30. With the general public largely unaware of recent state law revisions, lawyers at Console and Associates want victims to understand they now have the right to seek damages. Lawyers at the firm are also pointing out that survivors of abuse that occurred prior to the November 2019 legislation who feel they may have missed the statute of limitations could still have grounds to pursue their case. News of abuse at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health facilities broke in August 2020 when a well- known Philadelphia newspaper identified 41 instances of physical and sexual assault. Citing cases where children as young as 12 were sexually victimized as a result of 25 years of systemic abuse, the article prompted an investigation by the Philadelphia Department of Human Services and Community Behavioral Health, and resulted in the removal of 53 children. If you are a survivor of abuse at any of the Devereux Foundation's facilities, you are highly encouraged to contact the lawyers at Console and Associates, P.C., to participate in a cost-free case evaluation and learn more about the compensation you deserve.
