Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a School Employee

Attorney contributor, an experienced sexual assault attorney, Bobby Thompson, represents victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Bobby to provide insight into the legal rights of victims sexually abused by a teacher.

“School administrations have a legal obligation to provide a safe learning environment for enrolled students. Unfortunately, across the country, we have seen numerous sexual predators working in schools with students. These predators seek out these positions of power to abuse their students. To do their best, schools should implement security measures such as easy reporting systems and security cameras.”

“If a school fails to provide proper school measures and an employee is charged with sexual assault, the school may be considered liable. A school would be deemed liable due to negligence. Victims of teacher sexual assault should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to learn about all their legal options. In negligence cases, victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school.”
