Can a Middle School Be Held Liable For Sexual Assault?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard assists sexual assault victims and their families in Florida, helping them get the justice they deserve. Michael is a school sex abuse attorney and recently explained when a school could be held liable if a middle school teacher sexually assaults a student.

"School officials take on the role of parenting the children at their school each school day. This legal responsibility includes keeping them safe from many preventable dangers, such as sexual abuse. Sadly, there has been an increasing number of reports about middle school teachers and other school employees getting arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting their students. Sexual abuse and misconduct can vary from inappropriate conduct or conversations to physical assault. School officials must be aware of the risks and recognize the signs to prevent abuse from occurring in the first place. Vetting each staff member with extensive background checks can help eliminate hiring known sexual predators, but too often, they slip through the cracks when reports go unchecked. School officials need a strong commitment to preventing these abuse, or else they can be held liable if they neglect their safety."

"Students victimized by their middle school teacher should consult with an experienced school sex abuse attorney. Filing a lawsuit can often be a complicated process. Experienced attorneys will understand any of the state's statutes of limitations and how to prove the school or school district was negligent. The victim's attorney will build a case to verify that the abuse was foreseeable by investigating any prior reports of misconduct that may have been ignored. In cases of negligence where the abuse was foreseeable, victims can file a civil lawsuit in order to recover the compensation they deserve.
