Legal Options For School Sex Abuse Victims & Their Families

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has experience helping survivors of sexual abuse find justice. Here are some general thoughts from Laurence on the legal options available to survivors of sexual abuse by coaches, teachers, and other school staff members:

Reports of high school employees sexually abusing students have become rampant across the country. School administrators must stay aware of the threat that sexual predators pose to their students. Our schools also must do everything they can to keep their students safe from these predators.

Many cases of sexual abuse involving school employees may have been prevented if the school had met their legal duty to protect their students. In some cases, school negligence is partially to blame for enabling the abuse to occur. For example, a school might be deemed negligent if they failed to respond to previous reports of sexual misconduct involving a staff member.

When allegations of sexual abuse by a school employee arise, it’s important to determine if the school was negligent. In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.

If you or a loved one is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by contacting an experienced sex abuse survivors lawyer.
