Schools for the Deaf Class Action
Merchant Law Group haslaunched Class Actions on behalf of affected Canadiansagainst the Provincial Governments regarding past sexual and physical abuse at Schools for the Deaf. “The Plaintiffs in these legal proceedings were sexually or physically abused, and these victims were children and unable to communicate meaningfully because their keepers refused to allow them to use American Sign Language and had a high degree of control over these students”, said Tony Merchant, Q.C. “Unfortunately, deaf children were ideal victims for this kind of abuse, imprisoned in a world with ineffectual communication and inadequate safeguards.”
The lawsuits seek financial compensation for affected Canadians who were abused while students at Schools for the Deaf. Anyone who was a student at Schools for the Deaf is welcome to join this class action info list.Please note, filling out the form below creates no financial or legal obligation.
