Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced sexual assault attorney representing sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits in California. Below, Bobby has offered his insight on the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by a teacher.

"School administrations are legally obligated to maintain the safety of their students while providing a safe learning environment. Schools should do everything within their ability to ensure this safe environment. This could include implementing safety measures, such as security cameras and utilizing reporting systems. Another safety measure that all school employees should have to adhere to is a strict background check. By using this preventative measure, schools can better attempt to limit the hiring of predators and incidents of sexual abuse."

"If an incident takes place and a teacher sexually abuses a student, the victim, and their family is encouraged to secure the services of an experienced sexual assault lawyer to explain their legal rights. Some assault cases occur because of the negligence of a third party, like the school administration. One example of negligence would include if previous misconduct was reported but ignored by the administration. Victims along with their families should know that in cases of negligence, they may have reason to pursue a lawsuit against the school and could even receive compensation for damages."
