Legal Recourse for Students Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer. He helps victims and their families find justice through civil lawsuits against sexual predators and negligent third parties. Laurence has shared some information on the legal recourse options available for school sex abuse victims and their families.

"Teachers and other school employees are freely given a level of trust with their position that allows them access to children. Sadly, there have been many cases of teachers and other school employees taking advantage of this position of trust and power and using it to sexually abuse students."

"Schools have a legal obligation to protect their students from preventable abuse, such as sexual assault. However, in some cases, the abuse of students can fall on the school's negligence. If a teacher is charged with sexually abusing a student, it is essential to investigate if the school offered preventative measures to reduce the risk of abuse. School safety negligence can include ignoring past complaints of inappropriate behavior by a teacher, failing to conduct thorough background checks, and not providing security cameras on campus."

"In cases of school safety negligence, school sex abuse victims and their families may have reasonable grounds for a lawsuit. It is always encouraged to speak with an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer to determine the best recourse available for victims of sexual assault."
