Redress Scheme for forced adoption

Redress Scheme for forced Adoption

If you have been impacted by forced adoption, you may be entitled to bring take action against the relevant institution and seek compensation.

Thousands of women who gave birth between 1958 to 1984 suffered trauma as a result of forced adoption practices by hospitals and other institutions. Some of these women were sent to other institutions where they suffered abuse. The type of abuse included being restrained, separated from their newborn baby, and being forced to sign consent forms for the adoption of their baby.

Arnold Thomas & Becker encourages anyone considering this avenue to speak to an experienced lawyer for advice. While no amount of money can take away the immense grief and trauma caused by these historical forced adoption practices, you may be entitled to considerably more compensation than the scheme can offer.

What compensation can I claim?

You may be able to claim psychological injury compensation including:
– Pain and suffering
– Past and future loss of earning capacity
– Past and future medical treatment
– Exemplary damages, condemning the institution for failing in its duty of care
