Can I Sue For Being Stabbed at a High School?

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents victims and their families involved in stabbings and other violent crimes in Maryland. Recently Aaron answered, "Can I sue for being stabbed at a high school?"

"Parents and guardians put their trust in high schools to keep their children safe while providing education and a social environment. In fact, the law requires schools to provide adequate protection for the children and employees on their campus. Security cameras and patrolling school resource officers are just a couple security measures a school could utilize to reduce preventable dangers, such as shootings and stabbings. However, the school may be held liable if they fail to provide proper protection."

"A high school stabbing victim, or their parent, will need legal representation to prove that the crime was foreseeable. For instance, if the school or district failed to increase security even though it knew of a rise in violence on the campus, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. By adding additional security measures, including mandatory bag checks or even metal detectors, the school could reduce the risk of these dangers. If negligence is a factor, the victim and their family could be awarded monetary compensation when they file a civil lawsuit. An experienced violent crime attorney can further explain the legal options available for a high school stabbing victim."
