Justice for Victims Shot at a High School

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea has spent years representing shooting victims in Illinois. Brian shared some of his knowledge regarding the legal rights of high school shooting victims to seek justice in civil courts. 

"By law, high schools have a legal commitment to provide a safe learning environment for the children in their care each day. Proper security measures are necessary in order to limit the possibility of preventable violence, such as shootings. These preventative safety measures might include surveillance cameras, patrolling resource officers, and monitoring all entrances on campus. The school could be held liable if a crime occurs on the campus due to their negligence of security."

"If the crime is deemed foreseeable, the high school could be held accountable in a civil lawsuit. A predictable crime could involve a crime that occurred at a school that failed to increase its security despite an increase in crime in the area. Security may be reinforced with the addition of metal detectors or bag checks. School shooting victims or their surviving family members can explore their legal options further by discussing with an experienced school shooting attorney."
