Filing Lawsuits For Victims Stabbed at a High School

Attorney contributor Paul Bucci represents victims and their families involved in stabbings and other violent crimes. Paul shared some of his insight on the legal options available to victims stabbed on a high school campus, including when they could file a lawsuit.

"Schools are required by law to provide adequate protection for the children and employees on its campus. Security cameras and patrolling school resource officers are just a couple of security measures a school could utilize to reduce preventable dangers. If a school fails to provide proper protection for the safety of its students, they may be held liable."

"In addition to neglect, the victim's attorney must show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A crime may be considered predictable if the administration failed to increase security while knowing that violence was on the rise. Additional security measures might include installing metal detectors or conducting bag checks. The victim or their family may be awarded monetary compensation if negligence is proven to be a factor."
