Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has worked with many victims of sexual assault in lawsuits. Below, Marc provides insight into the legal rights of victims abused sexually by a school employee.

"Schools and administrations are obligated to keep the enrolled students safe and provide the safest environment possible. To do such, schools should implement safety measures, such as cameras, background checks, and guards. Unfortunately, predators seek out positions of power and trust in schools to exploit students sexually. Schools and administration must do their best to prevent this abuse from occurring. If a school fails to implement safety measures, they may be deemed liable in a lawsuit."

"Schools and administrations may be deemed liable as a result of negligence. Often sexual assault by a school employee is the result of negligence by a third party. An example of negligence is if a school failed to run a background check on an employee to discover their work and criminal history. In cases of negligence, victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. To determine all legal options, victims should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney."
