Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a School Employee

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented numerous victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Brian to provide insight on the rights of victims and their families sexually abused by a school employee to help determine their legal rights.

“School administration and staff have a legal responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for their students. Unfortunately, we have seen predators place themselves in positions of power to exploit students in school sexual abuse cases across the country. Schools are obligated to do their best to prevent the hiring of sexual predators to protect their students. Victims and their families should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to explore their legal options.”

“Schools must implement safety measures to ensure they are doing everything possible to prevent sexual assault from occurring. Examples of safety measures are background checks and easy reporting systems. If the administration does not implement safety measures to prevent sexual assault, they may be considered liable for negligence if abuse occurs. An example of negligence is if a teacher acts inappropriately with a student on camera, but the school does not investigate the incident. However, there are many forms of negligence. Victims and their families should know in negligence cases they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”
