Legal Recourse For School Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam represents survivors of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Here are some general thoughts from Anjali on the legal options available to victims of sexual abuse by school employees:

If you've recently discovered that your child has been sexually abused by someone at their school, you may be wondering about your family's legal options. Schools have a responsibility to make sure their students are safe from sexual predators. When an employee abuses students, it's important to determine if school negligence played a role in enabling the abuse to occur. In cases of school negligence, victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

For example, a school might be considered negligent if they hired an employee without running a background check or ignored complaints of sexual misconduct involving an employee.

You can learn more about your family's legal options by contacting one of our experienced sex abuse survivors attorneys for a free consultation.
