Can I Sue If Sexually Abused By a High School Teacher?

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol is an experienced school sex abuse attorney. She often represents victims and their families in private civil lawsuits in North Carolina. Kristen recently highlighted when a victim or their parents could sue if a high school teacher sexually abused a student.

"Ensuring the safety of a school campus is a high priority for schools and school districts. Schools need basic safeguards in place to prevent sexual abuse. Too often, we hear of school teachers abusing their position of trust and authority to exploit vulnerable students. Schools should enforce a policy that includes background checks, surveillance cameras, and frequent security sweeps on campus. Too many incidents may have been avoided had the school supplied sufficient security."

"If a high school teacher is arrested for sexual abuse, an investigation into the school's security should be conducted. If preventative measures were not taken, victims and their parents could file a civil case against the school based on negligence. Additionally, if any reports of misconduct were made but ignored, the school could be held liable. Victims sexually abused by a high school teacher and their families should speak with an experienced school sex abuse attorney to explore their legal options further."
