Filing Lawsuits for School Sexual Abuse

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier helps sex abuse victims and their families get the justice they deserve. As an experienced school sex abuse attorney, he recently outlined when a school could be held accountable if a teacher is charged with sexually assaulting a student.

"Parents look to school officials to take on the role of looking after their children during each school day. This legal and moral commitment includes safeguarding them from many preventable dangers, such as sexual abuse. Unfortunately, there have been many reports about school teachers and other school employees having sexual relationships with students. Sexual abuse can vary from inappropriate text messages to physical assault. School officials have a duty to recognize any signs of misconduct in order to prevent abuse from occurring in the first place. Conducting extensive background checks can help reduce the risk of hiring known sexual predators. However, when reports of misconduct are ignored, the predators are given the opportunity to abuse again. Schools must have a strong commitment to preventing this negligence, or they can be held liable."

"Victims of sexual abuse by a school teacher should speak with an experienced school sex abuse attorney. Experienced attorneys are aware of any state statutes of limitations and will know the process necessary to prove the school was negligent. In many cases of negligence where the abuse was foreseeable, victims and their families can file a civil lawsuit and may even recover compensation."
