Avoiding Liability for Agencies and Attorneys

This presentation will explore the concept of wrongful adoption, whether in tort or in contract, which can result in liability for the agency as a result of its intentional or negligent failure to provide adoptive parents with full or accurate information regarding the child's physical or psychological background as well as the types of damages awarded in these settings. It will also delve into the use of exculpatory clauses in contracts and legal and medical risk agreements that can lessen an agency's liability. Finally, this presentation will explore the tort of tortious interference with a parental relationship which can create liability for an adoption agency who fails to properly address the rights of a birth parent. Disrupted and dissolved adoptions are beyond the scope of this article. 2 CLE credits are expected to be offered for FL licensed attorneys
