Compensation for Victims Shot at a High School

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has spent years representing victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. As an experienced school shooting victim lawyer, Bobby recently offered some legal information for victims injured in a high school shooting, including when they might be able to sue for compensation. 

"By law, high schools must provide a safe environment for their students and employees. Proper security measures need to be implemented in order to limit the chance of preventable dangers, including school shootings. Surveillance cameras, patrolling resource officers, and locked entries and exits are just a few preventative safety measures to reduce the risk of violence. If there is a crime on the school campus, the school could be held liable if it failed to provide preventative security."

"If a school has a history of violence yet fails to increase its security, a crime could be deemed foreseeable. Victims of foreseeable crimes may be entitled to compensation if the school is found to have neglected its security. To learn more about filing a lawsuit after a high school shooting, victims should consult with an experienced violent crime attorney."
