Justice for Survivors of Sexual Abuse by School Employees

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman helps survivors of sexual violence fight for the justice and financial compensation they deserve in civil lawsuits. Here is some information from Dan on how the civil court system can help survivors:

Every parent deserves the security of knowing their children are safe throughout the school day. While most of our teachers, coaches, and other school employees are trustworthy people, there are also sexual predators in our schools. These predators seek out positions of trust and authority which they later exploit in order to commit terrible crimes. Our schools must be aware of the threat of sexual abuse and do all that they can to keep their students safe.

When allegations of sexual abuse by a school employee surface, it's crucial to arrest the perpetrator, support for victims, and determine if the school was negligent in a way that allowed the abuse to happen. An example of such negligence might be ignoring previous complaints of sexual misconduct involving a teacher. In cases of negligence, school abuse victims and their families likely have a strong case for a lawsuit.

Has your child recently come forward about sexual abuse involving a school employee? We understand how traumatic this time has been for your family and we want to help you find justice. Consider speaking to an experienced sex abuse survivors attorney to learn more about your family's legal options.
