Can I Sue if a School Teacher Sexually Abused My Child?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan helps victims and their families find justice through civil lawsuits against school sexual predators and negligent third parties. Kevin recently explained when a family could sue if a teacher has sexually abused their child. 

"When parents and guardians send their children to school or another educational institute, they expect the school to maintain a safe environment for their child. School teachers and instructors work closely with children, easily gaining their trust. This is why it is essential to make sure all school employees are vetted before they are hired. However, there have been many cases of teachers and other school staff members sexually abusing their students. If a school neglects its safety procedures, it can be considered negligent. A standard safety plan might include surveillance cameras, resource officers, and a proper reporting system." 

"While it is the legal responsibility of a school to protect their students from preventable abuse, students are often abused due to school negligence. If a school teacher is charged with sexually abusing a student, it is necessary to check if the school did everything within its means to prevent the abuse. If a school ignored past complaints of inappropriate behavior, they could be held liable if the teacher was still allowed around children."

"Filing a school sexual abuse lawsuit can be challenging, but an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer can guide school sexual abuse victims and their families through the legal process to ensure they get the full compensation they deserve."
