Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney Brian Kent, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, has represented numerous victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian provides his thoughts on the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by a teacher.

"Schools have a legal obligation to protect students. To ensure enrolled students' safety, schools must do their best to prevent predators from working in their schools and implement security measures to ensure they limit the chances of misconduct. Sadly, across the country, there have been numerous cases of teacher sexual assault. To prevent sexual abuse from occurring, schools should implement security measures, such as background checks, cameras, reporting systems, and more."

"Victims and their families should acquire an experienced sexual assault attorney's services to learn about their legal options. Schools must do their best to prevent abuse from occurring; if they do not, they may be considered liable. Many sexual abuse cases occur due to negligence on behalf of a third party, such as an employer. An example of negligence is if misconduct was reported but not adequately investigated. In cases of negligence, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
