Can Parents Sue If A Middle School Teacher Sexually Abused Their Child?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson helps victims file school sex abuse lawsuits in the state of California. As a school sex abuse lawyer, Bobby shared his insight regarding the common question, can I sue if a middle school teacher sexually abuses my child?

"Middle schools and school districts are legally bound to provide a safe learning environment for the children in their care. However, when a predator gets a position as a teacher or coach, with the position comes trust and power. These perpetrators are given easy access to vulnerable children which can lead to sexual abuse if school security is lacking. Background checks, security monitoring cameras, and effective reporting procedures are just a few precautions a school can take to prevent such dangers. If a school neglects its safety precautions, it can be held liable."

"As a parent of a middle school student that was a victim of a predator, it may be hard to understand how to proceed. Too often negligent security on the school campus is to blame for the abuse occurring. Additionally, a court can find that the school was negligent in preventing abuse if the administration ignored previous reports of misconduct. An experienced school sex abuse lawyer can help victims and their families learn more about their legal options."
