Legal Options For School Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families
Kindergarten sex abuse lawyer, representing victims and their families in civil lawsuits, Aaron Blank has helped victims in civil courts find justice. We’ve asked Aaron to share a bit of his knowledge on the legal rights of school sex abuse victims and their families:
Schools have a legal duty to make sure their students are safe from preventable dangers, including sexual abuse by teachers and other staff members. Sadly, sexual predators often work in positions of trust and authority, including teachers and other school employees.
When a teacher is arrested for sexually abusing students, it’s important that the student and their family are aware of their legal rights. In many cases, the school may also be held liable for failing to prevent the abuse due to negligence. For example, the school could be considered negligent for ignoring previous complaints of inappropriate behavior involving the accused teacher. In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.
If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a teacher, our experienced sex abuse victims lawyers are prepared to help your family fight for justice. You can learn more about your legal rights in a free consultation.
