Justice For Victims Sexually Abused By a High School Teacher

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents sexual abuse victims and their families across New Jersey. As an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, Brian recently discussed when victims sexually abused by a high school teacher could file a lawsuit. 

"Schools play a critical role in protecting children during the school day. Children should be kept safe while on campus and during extracurricular activities. Too often lately, we see reports of high school students being victims of sex crimes at the hands of their teachers or coaches. Schools and their administration have a legal obligation to reduce the risks of these incidents by conducting background checks on school employees and learning how to spot signs of misconduct and report it. If a school district or officials neglected school security, a school could be held liable."

"Victims have legal rights when sexually assaulted by a high school teacher. They can further learn their options by speaking with an experienced school sex abuse lawyer. An attorney who is familiar with the state's laws will know what evidence is required to determine if a school was negligent. It is possible for the victim's lawyer to show that the abuse was foreseeable by looking for past reports of misconduct or their failure to follow up on reports. Furthermore, by filing a lawsuit, victims get the compensation and justice they rightfully deserve."
