Legal Options for Victims of Stabbing at a High School

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson represents victims and their families involved in violent crimes, like stabbings. Jeff has shared some of his insight on the legal options available to victims stabbed on a school campus.

"Schools, like other property owners, have a legal obligation to provide sufficient security for their students and staff. Adequate security measures could include security cameras, metal detectors, and patrolling school officers. If a school neglects to provide adequate security for their student's safety, a civil lawsuit may be filed based on negligence." 

"The victim's attorney must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to neglect. A crime can be deemed foreseeable if the administration did not improve security despite knowing that crimes committed in the area were elevating. If negligence is proven, then monetary damages may be awarded to the victim or a family member."
