Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced sexual abuse lawyer, represents victims sexually abused at school. We asked Laurence to provide insight on the legal rights of victims to help them determine their rights.

“Sexual predators are often found in schools as they use their positions of power to abuse their students. Schools have an obligation to protect their students. To ensure safety and help prevent sexual assault, schools must provide adequate safety measures. Examples of safety measures that could be implemented are misconduct reporting systems, security cameras, guards, and plenty more.”

“If proper security is not provided for students, a school may be considered liable if sexual misconduct occurs. A school would be considered liable in such cases due to their negligence. These victims should secure an experienced sexual abuse lawyer’s services to determine whether their case involves negligence. In these cases, the victim would have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school.”
