Meyers & Flowers files suit on behalf of the Estate of Andrew T. Freund, Jr. against two employees of Illinois Department of Children and Family Services
Meyers & Flowers has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Estate of Andrew T. Freund, Jr., against Carlos Acosta and Andrew R. Polovin, employees of Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. The suit outlines how the two DCFS employees flagrantly ignored reports from both mandated reporters and concerned community members.
“This week AJ should have been celebrating his 6th birthday, instead his family continues to mourn him,” said family attorney Peter J. Flowers of Meyers & Flowers.
“Unfortunately, the very people who were mandated to investigate the ongoing reports of abuse and prevent any further harm to this child failed him. Our in-depth investigations into DCFS records show how at least two DCFS employees blatantly ignored the red flags that were raised over and over by the police, medical professionals and concerned neighbors leading to deadly consequences. Our goal with this lawsuit is to never have to plan another child’s funeral due to the reckless actions and inactions of DCFS employees.”
