Claims Against California Juvenile Hall Facilities – Do You Qualify?

Juvenile hall is supposed to be a place of security and safety. But in many cases, California juvenile hall facilities have been places of abuse. If you or a loved one have been victimized by the staff members at a Los Angeles or San Diego County juvenile hall facility, you may be entitled to potential compensation. Read on to learn more.

Recent Closure of Two Los Angeles Juvenile Hall Facilities

As of August 2023, Los Angeles County has closed two of its juvenile halls as a result of an order from a California regulatory board. The Board of State and Community Corrections declared both Barry J. Nidorf and Central Juvenile Hall unsuitable for use. Previous BSCC inspections indicated that several of the youths spending time in the juvenile hall facilities missed school, were forced to urinate in their rooms because of staff shortages, and suffered other potential abuse cases.

This is just one instance of a growing title wave of accusations of assault and abuses of power in California’s juvenile hall facilities. Knowing who to contact to file your claim and recover compensation is vital.

Sexual Assault and Abuse in Juvenile Hall

According to the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, there were over 1700 confirmed incidents of youth being abused, assaulted, or sexually harassed in juvenile hall facilities between the years of 2013 through 2018. 28.3% of those instances involved adult staff members victimizing youth hall members.

At the time of this writing, hundreds have sued LA and San Diego County juvenile halls and camps over allegations of sexual assault, abuse, physical harassment, lack of resources, being denied outside time, and other rights violations.

In many cases, these instances of abuse occurred from adult staff members toward juvenile hall youths, and often male staff members to female youths. Right now, many law firms are looking to represent their clients successfully in the growing push for justice.

Those interred in juvenile hall still have rights and must be protected; if you or a loved one have your rights violated in any way, you could be compensated.

Which California Juvenile Halls Are Being Sued?

In Los Angeles County, the following juvenile hall facilities may potentially be sued for damages and compensation because of abuse:

  • Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall
  • Central Juvenile Hall
  • Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall

In San Diego County, the following juvenile hall facilities may potentially be sued for compensation due to abuse:

  • Juvenile Ranch Facility
  • Girl’s Rehabilitation Facility
  • Kearny Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility
  • East Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility
  • Urban Camp

Do You Qualify for Possible Compensation?

It is currently possible to sue the above California juvenile hall facilities if you were born after May 1, 1983. You may qualify for possible compensation depending on factors like:

  • Which facility you spend time with it
  • The nature of the abuse you experienced
  • Whether the abuse you experienced was at the hands of other youths or a staff members
  • And more

It can be difficult to know whether you’ll recover compensation for the crimes you experienced while in juvenile hall. Speaking to knowledgeable personal injury attorneys is a good idea, as they’ll be able to:

  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Break down the full spread of your legal options
  • Represent you in court if necessary

What Our Clients Say

Honestly can't say enough positive things about the Law Brothers! I got into a severe car accident at the end of 2016 and they've been with me every step of the way ever since. Almost 4 years! I want to thank everyone there especially Caitlyn, Shawn, and Yasmeen. They have been responsive, helpful, and reassuring and I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the legal support that I was able to get along the years. They are super professional and really helped me get through this hardship in my life. I would definitely recommend!!!

Ivonne K.

Last year I contacted your law firm when I got into a car accident. the gentleman that handled my case, his name was Cesar. Cesar was very helpful and compassionate about my situation. He helped me get my car fixed very quickly and was super patient with me. He answered all of my questions and ensured me that everything will be taken care of. Once my case was settled I ended up getting more than I was expecting, which was amazing. I highly recommended Cesar and this law firm to anyone that needs help.

William Charlton

I was a client to the Law Brothers firm for about a year, the staff is really nice and professional. I would get updates on the case status and when I did call I would usually get a call back within 24 hours. I really appreciate the work that was done for me. I got the most out of my settlement and when I called to have a break down of the costs, Genesis was very patient and gave me a break down on all of it. I will definitely recommend this law firm to friends and family, as well as call them in the future if needed (hopefully not soon).

Erendira Landa

I had gotten into an accident and had no idea what to do. Friends and family recommended I get a lawyer since I was not at fault. I found this firm and I was beyond impressed. They handled everything for me from car insurance questions to finding doctors for me to visit. After my accident all I had to do was make appointments with various doctors to help with my pain. I give five stars because this firm went above and beyond and continued to follow up with me. I highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer to use them.

The team at the Law Brothers we’re amazing! I am not the kind of person to seek legal counsel, but I was hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and the driver’s insurance was avoiding my attempts to get reimbursed. They were able to not only get a settlement that replaced my motorcycle, but they found me physical therapy which was close to my work. Now I am back to where I was physically before the accident and I am able to ride a motorcycle again. They were always responsive to my texts, calls, and emails. They even would systematically check to see how I was healing and if the support they linked me to was satisfactory.

Charles Mortensen

This law firm is a team of miracle workers! The Law Brothers Law Firm saved me from suffering at another law firm from Century City. My case manager Jonathan was able to gather all the details from my accident ( literally within a week! ) and keeping me updated consistenty to keep me at ease. They work diligently and keep at it until your case is completed. I went through a car accident that almost took my life away but thanks to the higher power and the Law Brothers, you won't even hesitate to choose them because I felt trust and integrity throughout my case and I feel happier in my life, which in my opinion, matters the most at the end of the day.
